I am new to the forum. I own a excavation company and buy all John Deere (3-4 new machines a year). I decided I wanted a UTV for my property and of course wanted to go with Deere as I am a loyal customer. I must say I am very disappointed. The 590i on the lot is a never sold 2017 camo model, and there are no rebates for buying a machine 2 years old. I took the brand new machine to my property to demo and the following where already broken with NO hours.
-3 out of 4 shocks leaked
-The E brake cable was broken
-The machine leaks oil
-The camo bed vinyl was pealing off already
The dealer, who I have a great relationship said they want $13,700 for the machine, plus $6,500 for poly doors, roof, windshield, front bumper, and winch. LOL a brand new Ranger 570 or Honda Pioneer is $15,000 out the door with the same features and I think the quality blows deere away. I know the 825i gator is a whole lot better machine, but its to wide for some on the area I hunt. Does anyone else feel the 590 series of gator is was overpriced and underbuilt?
