Re: JD Gator pros and cons
Not a Gator owner here, but I have went on a few rides with Gators along with the group. Both of the ones I was around were the same model, but I can't recall the model # or name. They were 4x4 and I believe 700 engine.
They performed well on all the trails we did, had no trouble at all. Watched 1 play rather hard in a big water/mud hole, and did fine.
Neither owner had any complaints on the machines and had owned them over a year at the time.
When you look at all the UTV'S, the ones built for work, one's built for play, and one's built to do both such as some Gators, Can Am Commander, Rangers etc...etc.......the gators I was around seemed like a real nice machine to both work and play, but capable of more work than play as compared to some in that class.
I have a Commander, which I would call capable of work, but leaning more to the play side, which is what I wanted.
To summarize what little I know about the Gator, they seem like a real nice machine.
Enjoy your new ride !!
Your never to old to learn something stupid
