Exmark has expanded its 2015 product line to include two side-by-side utility vehicle (UTV) models. The new models deliver the productivity that professionals demand with switch-on-the-fly, 2- or 4-wheel drive, and a customizable 2-in-1 tilting cargo box that transforms from box to flatbed in minutes.
“The 500S and 700S UTVs were developed to complement Exmark’s industry-leading commercial mowers and lawn care equipment,” said Daryn Walters, Exmark’s director of marketing. “They deliver the performance, productivity and long-term durability our customers demand in a package that’s just as good at having fun as it is at getting work done.”
Ideal for a wide variety of work or recreation activities, including hauling, pulling, plowing, riding or playing, the Exmark 500S and 700S UTVs feature a dual-range automatic transmission. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) design responds to inputs, including vehicle speed, load and engine rpm, in real time, to deliver optimal acceleration and fuel efficiency. The 700S adds an electric-locking front differential for maximum traction and pulling power, regardless of conditions.
The 700S has a total payload capacity of 1,500 pounds (1,100 pounds for the 500S). The transformable design of the tilting rear cargo box can be converted to a flatbed in minutes for enhanced versatility. Integrated front and rear, 2-inch receivers give users the ability to hook up trailers or attachments at either end of the machine.
Both Exmark UTVs feature powerful, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engines with electronic fuel injection (EFI). With the ability to optimize the fuel/air mixture for the conditions, in real time, EFI increases fuel efficiency and delivers excellent throttle response combined with reduced emissions. The 700S utilizes a 695-cc, single overhead cam (SOHC) engine, while the 500S relies on a 443-cc SOHC powerplant.
The machines feature 4-wheel hydraulic disc brakes and dual A-arm, front and rear suspension with 10 inches of travel and 10 inches of ground clearance. The fully independent suspension provides exceptional ground clearance, allowing the Exmark UTVs to traverse virtually any terrain with confidence. The 700S also features upgraded alloy wheels.
