Rolls Royce of ATV's
The 6-wheel "Mountain Lion" has power steering, shift-on-the-go transmission (go from forward to reverse without stopping or clutching), live hydraulics, and a front hydraulic lift for mounting a 5-ft. mower, 6-ft. snow plow, and an engine-equipped snowblower. It also has a hydraulic dump box that can be equipped with a tool box on each side and can be outfitted with a rear-mount scraper blade. It comes standard with side-by-side bucket seats.
"We've spent 12 years and $850,000 developing it," says Hackett. "The high-low transmission lets you shift from low to high and back to low again without stop-ping. The dump box has a carrying capacity of 1,250 lbs. which makes it great for picking rocks or other heavy hauling jobs.
"It's powered by an 18 hp gas engine that's mounted on the side for easy service. Top speed is 18 mph. The mower deck has its own 14 hp Vanguard gas engine. Quick connect gas and electric lines let it be con-trolled from the driver's seat."
An optional kit lets you lift the rear set of wheels up off the ground to shorten the wheelbase. "We also offer a fiberglass cab and hydraulic winch, and we plan to soon offer an optional pto and fifth wheel goose-neck trailer," says Hackett. A4-wheel model is also available.
Prices start at under $7,000.
