    Deere XUV 835R HVAC System

    Looking for a UTV with cab, heat and A/C which will do 40 + mph. It will replace my 2014 Kubota RTV X1100C which has served me well in all categories except for speed. Kubota RTV max speed is only about 25 mph. Much of my property is along 1.5 mile stretch of township asphalt road and I would like to go faster. I’m aware of two options, Polaris Northstar and John Deere XUV 835R, but there may be others. I looked at a Polaris Northstar yesterday and plan to check out the John Deere XUV 835R next week. MSRP prices for the two machines are comparable. Only question/concern is how good is the HVAC system in the two machines? Any HVAC info for either Polaris and/or Deere models would be appreciated.

    There is a new slightly less expensive Deere which might be of interest. XUV 835M Cab HVAC

    Looks like about $2000 less expensive than the 835R. Interior not quite as plush, halogen instead of LED headlights. I'm not sure of the other differences.

    The hvac system is fantastic. I have an 865r, but the HVAC system should perform the same. The AC system gets it nice and cold even at idle during 90 deg, high humidity, sunny days.
    I had my gator out a couple weeks back at -10 deg and I have to turn the temperature knob down even with the fan on low.
    There is no doubt it would be good at -20 deg.
    The M that Tim mentioned would save you a few bucks, but maybe not as much at it seems by the time you get it optioned out. There are allot of wiring harnesses and interior parts that aren’t standard on the M.
    I like the diesel, but it only goes 32, so it may not be good for you young speed demons

    i got the gas model 835R---late last fall i was finally able to be able to run it out to the governor ran up to 47 mph till it shut down to 45 mph's. it wanted to go faster, but puter i guessshut it down.

    A/C is fantastic on them warm days i had, (bought in September some time)

    now the heater jeez oh mighty--u gotta turn it down after a bit -at least in mine u do. just wished JD would of put a slower speed on the first notch of knob. way to fast. bad thing i find turning it off and on-even on the temp setting of low.

    don't settle on the M model-go the extra length and get the R one. u will not regret it. and don't forget to pimp it out too.

    I'm a big Polaris fan but IMO the Deere is a far better built machine. Just my two cents.

    I have the 835M HVAC and I would probably go with the R if I had to do it over again. With the R you receive a headliner and rear liner which will help with outside sounds. If you get the R I would probably suggest getting seat covers, especially if you use it for working.

    I ordered the floor mats for it also. On my old Kubota X900 I would just use the hose on the inside, don't think I will be doing that with this one.

    I also have already started looking at different tires, I don't use my Gator for trail riding, more time on the road than off, I believe the noise from the current tires is loud (maxxis bighorn 2.0)

    No AC use yet, but like Jim said, what a heater.

    Thanks to all for your replies. I did find one feature which may be a deal breaker. It seems the XUV 835R does not have engine braking (EBS). I have a lot of hills on this old farm land and That is one thing I missed on some previous machines I had. I would very likely be looking for a replacement clutch/belt which incorporated engine braking if I got a 835R.

    the 835 does indeed have engine braking. You should have good descent control down to about 4mph in high range and about 2 mph in low range.

    That's great news. For some reason the John Deere dealers (four) within 75 miles of State College, PA do not have an 835R in stock. I can drive on the interstate about 100 miles to see and test drive one. Looking at doing just that later this week.
