A friend and I went in and ordered two new XUV560E Gators for our wives today. We’re such nice husbands! They just want them for yard chores and light debris hauling.

Our friends have been using a golf cart that they store for the winter for a club and have to give back soon. They’re taking one of 3 that’ll be delivered next month that has aggressive tires and a roof. We’re just placing an order for a new factory build that’ll be delivered in September as we’re not in any hurry. I just ordered the stock turf wheels and tires because she didn’t like the way her quad used to chew up the yard when turning. I’ll probably need to add the roof once she sees her friend got one.

We have just joined the Pinto Gator ranks.

Aren't most quads posi rear/solid axle? The 560 isn't. We have zero issues driving and working in the yard.

Believe you're right, I know Emma's 4wheeler will rip $#!% up :ROFLMAO: The Donkey never, unless someone forgets to unlock the rear axle. :rolleyes::LOL:

Congrats! I have what I'd consider standard turf type tires on the Buick. I'm not sure that's what they actually are though. They have been referred to as wuss boy tires, if I'm not mistaken. I will buy them again, they have gotten us everywhere we need to go and leave no marks. Buy the roof.....and enjoy. September seems sooooooo far away.......

Yes, our quads had a solid rear axle. It’s just going to be a yard Pinto. It won’t be taken riding up in the mountains like we used to take our quads. We don’t have muddy areas to get around, so the tires should be fine. It was her call. She also said no roof, but I’m expecting that to change when our friends get theirs in June and she sees what the roof is.

I think they’ll be fine. If she gets stuck I think there’s someone here who can offer plenty of good towing advice. 🤣 I suspect that when she sees the roof on her girlfriends Gator, she going to want one too. Yes, September does seem a long way off, but we’ve gotten used to waiting for things this last year. Now, if I was waiting on my tractor, I’d be climbing the walls.

Keep in mine, our 560 IS the tow vehicle of choice. :ROFLMAO:

That’s why I bought that one. Those Cadillac gators look like they would perform in the mud like the red Cadillac in My Cousin Vinny. 🤣

Pinto Gator just sounds WRONG! Horses and Gators don't mix. Now I can see calling the smallest Kawasaki Mule a Pinto Mule.
Yes, I bought a Mule. The 835M Gator I wanted was too much green ($$$) 🤑 :whistle:🤠
