THE DO-ALL OUTDOOR MACHINE
The John Deere Gator™ XUV835M answers the call of the outdoors. By Mark Modoski
The hunt begins well before the season opens. Months of preparation, hard work, and anticipation will hopefully result in seeing a trophy come across your sightline. But there’s a lot to be done before you get that opportunity. Scouting acres of forest in search of a place to hang your stand, clearing brush, setting up camp, and gathering firewood are just part of what goes into having a successful fall campaign. You’ll need plenty of tools at your disposal, and a quality XUV is certainly one of them. For accomplishing what a hunter needs, the John Deere Gator XUV835M will serve you well. Surveying land to locate game is a big part of the hunt. The XUV835M’S ability to handle the toughest terrain will help you cover lots of ground to locate scrapes and other signs of quarry and to set trail cams. Covering ground and gaining vantage points can mean trekking up hills and steep trails. The XUV835M has four-wheel drive, power steering, and an independent front and rear suspension. Coupled with a choice of aggressive, all-terrain or extreme-terrain tires and 11.2 inches of ground clearance, the XUV835MV will take you anywhere you want to go. For traveling in low-light conditions, halogen LED lights will keep you on your path. Once you’ve staked your claim, getting gear where it needs to go becomes paramount. The oversized storage space of the XUV835M will accommodate your stand, bags of bait and feed, and any other equipment you’ll need with a massive 45x12x52, extra-durable cargo box. Additional storage comes by way of cup holders in the dash, 56.69 liters of space under the seat, 3.85 liters in the glove box, optional space under the hood, and accessories to extend the bed. The XU835M seats three comfortably, eliminating the need for a second vehicle.
