Signalling a new era in utility task vehicle (UTV) performance and versatility, the Rustler 120 has been unveiled by New Holland.

Expected to appeal to golf courses, garden centres and nurseries as well as estates and parks, the all-terrain UTV is a two-seater. It is powered by a three-cylinder 20hp diesel engine and boasts a lightweight, corrosion-resistant, aircraft-grade 6061 aluminium chassis.

The driveline is a belt continuously variable transmission. Setting it apart from competitive UTVs, the transmission has one ratio in each direction. This machine goes from nought to 40kmph quickly and smoothly without changing gear.

It has automatic four-wheel drive and auto differential locks - no levers, no buttons, just drive. The rear diff locks automatically when one wheel slips. The front diff only engages four-wheel drive to the front axle when slip is detected and only locks the diff when one wheel slips.

The rear cargo box can carry up to 476kg and be tipped by an optional power tipper. In addition to the load capacity, the unit can be specified with a rear hitch coupling capable of towing a best-in-class 797kg.

The Rustler 120 is available in two models. The on-road version comes with road-legal lights and fully-suspended seats. It also features front and rear towing hitches and hydraulic-powered lift deck.

The off-road UTV can be tailored to suit individual requirements. Customers can choose either turf or agricultural tyres and manual or hydraulic-powered load platform.

Rack and pinion steering is standard on both and independent coil suspension on each corner is designed to ensure maximum traction. All models feature full roll-over protection and a cab is optional.

The New Holland Rustler 120 will make its UK debut at leading arable industry technical event Cereals next week (9-10 June).
