Hustler Turf Equipment is entering the utility vehicle (UTV) market with the addition of its Maximum Duty Vehicle (MDV).

Designed for heavy-duty applications, the MDV features LeveLift, a cargo box that lets users lift up to 750 pounds from the ground and dump material from any point in its arc of motion.

“The introduction of the MDV with LeveLift bed technology speaks to the innovation and quality craftsmanship inherent in the DNA of Hustler Turf,” said Adam Mullet, vice president of sales and marketing in North America. “The MDV is leading the industry by creating the maximum duty UTV category. It offers customers a machine that works hard in addition to getting them from point A to point B.”

With a flip of a switch, the LeveLift brings the cargo box up, back and down, enabling loading at any point. Once loaded, the LeveLift brings the cargo box back up and into position on the MDV.

The MDV will lift 750 lbs off the ground.

“After nearly a decade of research and development, we’re ecstatic the Hustler MDV is rolling off of the production line,” said Mullet. “We’re anxious to learn more about how our customers utilize the MDV and hear about new applications for a bed that lowers to the ground while staying level and can be loaded and dumped in any position.”

The Hustler MDV features a Kohler Diesel engine with a 14-gallon fuel tank, continuously variable transmission (CVT) and power steering.

The vehicle is available in a standard bed model or with LeveLift. The all-wheel drive MDV runs at a top speed of 37 mph and the vehicle has a total load capacity of up to 1,685 pounds.

The Hustler MDV is now available at select independent dealers and will be on sale nationwide by the end of 2017.
