ROXOR UTV fun in Detroit


I saw the ROXOR yesterday at the Shreveport sports show. I liked what I saw but would be more interested when the automatic transmission comes out. And I am not all that crazy about the diesel engine but all in all it was priced several thousand lower than the top of the line UTV's and I saw some other benefits like larger beds, larger seating area. If it came in a gas engine, with auto trans I would be all over it.

Tracy....keep an eye on the Intimidator UTV brand. Designed, engineered, and manufactured in Batesville, Arkansas. They are not that well known..yet. Same company makes Spartan mowers. The founder was an executive for many years at Bad Boy. He wanted to create great zero-turn mowers and UTV's with bells and whistles, comfort, and maybe slightly better pricing in many cases. I bought one of their Spartan brand zero-turn mowers and am quite pleased.

Zep, I looked at a couple or the intimidator models yesterday also. I remember seeing the bodies were beefed up and looked to be pretty sturdy. I also recall the seats were nicely done. I don't look much at the electric ones because about 1/3 of my property is bottom land and can get pretty wet with shallow water holes scattered around. And some of the best deer hunting comes around or near that bottom land they use as a travel corridor. I'm not convinced elec vehicles and water goes well together. And as far as battery cost goes, if that is the only cost of upkeep then that would be ok but if other expenses like I have experienced come with the battery purchases then it might be to costly for me anyway. However the intimidator was a good looking beefy ride.

I wished I was not so much down with diesel engines after all my Kubota tractor has no problems at all. The Roxor looks like a good work vehicle for the farm.

Tracy...I wish I would have been there with you. Intimidator primarily makes gas and diesel models. I think they only make one electric model. I am going to test drive a gas and an electric one sometime.

I wished you had been there also. There were most all of the UTV's around to see. I was looking at the intimidator line because I was not familiar with them. We had a jeep pickup at the farm and used it quite a bit, so that may have been the reason I liked the Roxor. I am happy with my 900 but it's nice to look and wish smile
