John Deere Gator XUV 825i 4x4 - Specs

Choice of colors
  • Available in 3 color schemes: John Deere Green & Yellow or Olive & Black (Shown) or REALTREE HARDWOODS HDŽ Pattern.
Power VS Pretenders
  • 50 HP, 812cc, 3 cylinder, DOHC, EFI 4-cycle automotive-style engine has the most displacement and power in its class.
  • 44 mph top speed for barreling down a trail or crossing a pasture.
  • 75 Amp alternator generates 1012 Watts of electricity - plenty of juice for accessories.
  • Excellent low-end torque for towing, hauling and climbing hills.
  • Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) for superior throttle response and power; provides instant starting in all types of weather and at high altitudes.
  • Two-range CVT transmission requires no shifting and delivers for superior efficiency from low-speed pulling to fast top speed.
  • Advanced clutching with a tighter belt provides increased acceleration.
Confidence VS Terrain
  • Select a completely turf friendly mode of operation, or press the switch and get on-demand 4-wheel drive for climbing the toughest trails. Rear differential can be locked so the rear drive wheels push together through tough spots.
  • Independent double-wishbone long-travel suspension (8-inches in front and 9-inches to rear) ensure all four wheels stay on the ground working for you. 11-inch ground clearance helps prevent vehicle from getting high-centered.
  • A solid core steel sway bar reduces body lean and employs an efficient double-ball drop-link for increased durability.
  • Vehicle has one of the highest static stability factors in the industry thanks to a wide-stance, low-center of gravity and long wheelbase.
  • Full-clutch enclosure provides greater access through water up to 22 inches high. Standard muffler is equipped with a spark arrestor
  • Standard Occupant Protection System (OPS) with a passenger-side hand-hold and 3-point seat belts is SAE and OSHA ROPS-certified.
Capability VS A Day's Work
  • Biggest cargo box in its class, with 16.4 cubic feel of capacity, 20 tie down points, pickup-style tailgate, steel reinforced load guard and bed, glass-filled polymer sides, standard gas-assist for easier dumping. Converts to flat-bed in minutes.
  • Cargo box has optional factory spray-in bedliner and power lift.
  • Exclusive Quick-Clamp rail-based attaching system enables adding attachments like gun-boots, tool racks, sidewall extensions and more in seconds.
  • Independent double-wishbone long-travel suspension is designed to offer a superior ride without squatting whether unloaded to or carrying max capacity.
  • 1,000 lb. cargo box capacity, 1,500 lb. towing and 1,400 lb. payload capacity.
  • Standard integrated 2-inch front and rear receiver hitches.
Engineering VS The Real World
  • Heavier-duty engine components, like an aluminum head, cast block with painted interior and crank and thrust bearings ensure long life.
  • Hydroformed frame offers exceptional tolerance for twisting under heavy loads.
  • Engineered ductile front cast-iron A-Arms balance strength and weight and are designed to withstand jackhammer trails.
  • Full-steel skid plates guard underbody.
  • Engineered polymer body panels (JDLOY) can be painted and provides improved scratch and marring resistance/recoverability.
Price starting at: $11,199.00* (USD)

Just some quick questions to existing 825i owners, as I will likely replace my existing utility side by side with a new Gator 825i. How hard is it to replace the CVT Belt, as it appears from several posts that will need to happen from time to time? On a long grade, such as a sand mountain or even a paved road with a 10% grade, how quickly does the 825i run out of power? In looking at the photos, the air cleaner intake is drawing dirty air from very low on the unit, is there a snorkel from any of the aftermarket guys that would allow the inlet to be cab high? And sorry for so many questions, but the gas tank appears fairly small, has anyone found an aftermarket alternative that would extend the cruising range? JH

Hey JH,

Welcome to the forum! I have not messed with the CVT belt yet, so I don't have an answer for that. From what I've seen, I don't think it is particularly difficult, but until I do it myself, I can't say for sure.

I don't have "sand mountains", but I do have sand/dirt/clay hills on my property that the 825i handles quite easily. I don't know if this answers your question, but if I start with a little speed, it keeps it right up. Stopping and then starting can tax it for just a bit, but once moving, I can accelerate pretty briskly. For an idea of the terrain/soil composition, I can stay in 2WD once moving, but starting up a slope requires 4WD. Also, I don't have really long runs before reaching level spots. It's no match for a fast ATV, but it's quite capable.

For snorkels, none from "aftermarket guys" yet, but I have seen reasonably nice looking "home built" solutions. I haven't tried it yet, but I will probably do something with mine in the near future. The CVT intake vent (on the driver's side) is also a little low and I will raise that as well. (I'm picky so it has to look "production" or I'd have thrown something together already. ) That still leaves the possibility of water going in the CVT exhaust, but I will see if that is an issue for me once the other mods are in place.

As for the gas tank, I agree it is quite small, and this is my biggest knock against the machine. I only have run on my property (35 acre ranch/farm) and around the neighborhood so far, so I haven't taxed it yet. I don't know of any solutions for this at this point.

Have not purchased a 825i yet, but may soon. Is the standard steering power assisted in any form if power steering is not ordered? Any known problems with the optional power steering?

The standard steering is not power assisted. I do not have it but now would have purchased it.

The gator is like a BOAT (but only another thousand).
