Hello all. My name is Steve Lawson and I just joined this site a few weeks ago. I really got hooked on the Gator product line, a few years ago. I think it's a great looking product and a very durable product as well.
I am currently working with a company developing the Gator for underground mining. Currently that market seems to be serviced by Kubota RTV900's, but I am hoping to change that. To that end we have just ordered 6 825D units, and we started working on the first two units this week. I will post some pics as we proceed, and what you will see is some super heavy guarding, some major clutch mods, a complete rust proofing program (underground mines are very acidic), metal roof designs etc. We will also be building a 4 seat 825D as currently Deere does not make such a unit but Kubota does. I would definitely be interested in any ideas anyone has relating to durability and longevity, and I will share with all of you anything we come up with during our research and development of the product.
Cheers

Sorry for the delay getting back to everyone. In addition to the Gators I have another project on the go, the EDV, or extreme duty vehicle. I was visiting the factory in Birmingham where they are manufactured so I was out of the loop for a week or so. I'll post a few pics once I figure out how to do it. Thanks
