Buyer’s Guide for John Deere Gators in the Mississippi Delta

Looking for a utility vehicle that performs well under heavy stress? Our John Deere Gators are designed to deliver smooth rides, reliable suspension, and high-performing capabilities. With so many options available, it can be a tough decision to make. That’s why we created this buyer’s guide to walk you through everything you need to know about buying a Gator UTV.

How To Decide Which John Deere Gator Is Right For You

Step 1: Narrow down what you plan to use your Gator for.

Narrowing down exactly what and how you plan to use your John Deere Gator is an important step that shouldn’t be skipped. While Gators are designed to be versatile, there are still many unique advantages that each offers in varying conditions. Let’s take a look at what all you should consider.

  • Speed. Will you be using your utility vehicle for work or for play? Maybe both? Apart from application, maximum speed is one of the biggest differences between each of the Gator series, making it easier to narrow down your pick. The Traditional Series goes as low as 20 mph while the Full-Size Crossovers go over 45 mph. 
  • Capabilities. Will you need to haul heavy loads? How much gear will you need to fit in the cargo box? If your worksite is relying on this workhorse to haul equipment and material around, it’s important your Gator’s hauling capacity is up to the task. While each Gator is capable of hauling anything under 400 lbs, you might want to consider whether or not you’ll need additional strength.
  • Terrain. Different Gators are built to take on different types of terrains. Whether you plan to ride on your property or transport materials around the construction site, think about the terrain you’ll be driving on. Is it rugged and uneven or is it flat and smooth? If you plan to stick to mild conditions, you’ll get the most use out of 2WD. If you plan to drive on harsher conditions, consider the 4WD or 6X4 options instead. 
  • Step 2: Decide on a model in your price range.

    With so many options available, it’s time to factor in your needs with our available Gators to find the best possible choice for you and your budget. Let’s look at an overview of what each John Deere Gator vehicle series has to offer.
