John Deere Gator 825i Review

Farm Industry News recently published a generally favorable review of the new John Deere Gator 825i.  Not surprisingly, the review is based on the vehicle’s performance in an agriculture setting.  What I like about the review is that it evaluates the vehicle based on application specific performance e.g. straddling 30 in. corn rows.  The author suggested the vehicle would be a good alternative to a used pickup truck.  Here is a quick summary of the review.

Some of the good:

  • Engine
  • Instrumentation/gauges
  • Underside protection
  • Build, Ride & Handling
  • Cargo box & organizer
  • Winch
  • Lighting

Needs improvement:

  • No power steering
  • Position of steering wheel
  • Position of shift and parking brake levers
  • Operation of parking brake
  • Air intake for clutch
  • Downhill braking
