"Improvements are designed to help customers get their work done faster and more efficiently and mean the Gator can be charged anywhere there is a standard UK electric plug socket," said a John Deere spokeswoman.
The kit is good for users concerned about noise levels and exhaust emissions, she added. It has a top speed of 15.5mph and runs on hi-flotation turf tyres to help prevent ground compaction. Total payload capacity was 410kg and it towed up to 275kg.
"Operating time has now been improved by as much as 75 per cent, depending on application, and one charge should easily last the average user all day. A new optional 48V to 12V converter is also available."
