New Holland introduces the Rustler utility vehicle. Case IH introduces the Scout. They are sourced through Club Car. Rustler and Scout are offered in two-passenger or four-passenger versions, with gas or diesel engines, 4×2 or 4×4 axles, and with a wide variety of options and accessories. The only difference in each line is paint colour offerings.
The smaller model has a 14-hp gas engine and shift-on-demand four-wheel drive. The larger models— 20-hp diesel and 23-hp gas — have all-wheel-drive that engages automatically as needed. This system also transfers power to the wheels with the most traction.
Rustler and Scout UVs have bench seats or high-back bucket seats with 13-position driver seat. Certified roll-over protection system (ROPS) is standard. Options and accessories include powered cargo dump box, cab enclosures and winch. A hydraulic-powered, quick-change tool attachment system is built in. You control attachments with a joystick beside the driver’s seat. You can equip a Scout with a Case IH AFS receiver to mark your scouting notes on geo-referenced field maps.
Box capacity is 800 pounds, or 1,050 pounds with the optional high capacity kit.
