Have been toying with gator purchase for a while and finally jumped in while at dealer recently picking up some items to service my other JD equipment. They had a 835R sitting on lot that was sold but were able to locate a second one not spoken for. Have upgraded with front, rear and brush guard lights, turn signals, horn, front and rear guards, mirrors, seat covers, floor mats, etc. only have 4 hrs on it and don’t plan to work it, more of a neighborhood cruiser. One thing that surprised me was the high RPMs the engine runs at. Seems like it likes 4K plus rpms to cruise and when accelerating easily goes 5k plus. No issues shifting and clutch seems to be working fine. other forums suggest this is normal and this machine likes RPMs. Anyway, excited to be a new forum member and learning from all of you.

I have a 2021 835R also. Does your machine squeak in the rear? Mine does since new it the rear shocks the gas strut part of it when you compress them by jump up down on bumper or just drive it across the pasture. They tell me it normal lol I don’t believe it.

The Chery engine is the same one used in the early Geo Metro and topped out at 5700 rpm. JD doesn't have separate transmissions for the Yanmar diesel, hence why the diesel is only good for 31mph and the gas version good for 45mph or so. Fuel economy is better with the diesel.

I have no squeaks in shocks. Not normal.

New 835m as of around father's day. Treated myself. I got a squeak in the rear but seems more related to the bed.
