Cushman rolls out versatile buggy for site managers

Cushman has launched a durable 4X4 buggy suitable for turf, landscape and production teams looking for something "rugged, reliable and versatile".

The supplier of light-transportation vehicles said its newest model, the 1600XD-R utility vehicle, features combined four-wheel drive capability with a 22 hp three-cylinder diesel engine for tackling tough terrain.

"Performance is further enhanced by an automatic, continuously variable transmission with low- and high-gear ratios," product manager Richard Tyrrell said of the buggy, which can be licensed for road use.

"It can be engaged in two-wheel and four-wheel drive operation and has exceptional hauling and towing capacity. Maximum vehicle load is 726 kgs and top speed is 40km/h.

"The 1600XD-R combines rugged construction and refined power with a 4x4 drivetrain to serve a variety of customers including golf-course superintendents and agricultural producers. It is reliable and versatile."

The kit includes a tubular steel rollover protection system and ergonomic cockpit design. Front brush guard, mud flaps and automotive-quality front cowl keep meanwhile give the buggy a sharp but stocky feel.

Ransomes Jacobsen is the European distributor for the Cushman brand.
