0 Textron to launch New Cushman

Cushman®, a recognized leader in light-transportation vehicles for commercial, industrial and turf-maintenance applications, introduces the HaulerTM line of rugged, versatile utility vehicles, ideal for turf maintenance and facilities management applications at golf courses and resorts.

Hauler 1000 Blue MediumThe Hauler line offers numerous features designed to make daily maintenance of golf-course turf and facilities more efficient. An optional limited slip differential provides for greatly improved traction on wet or loose terrain, and minimizes impacts to turf caused by wheel slippage. Each Hauler features a standard steel brush guard and integrated front bumper to protect the body, finish and vehicle components from the wear of daily use and abuse. The Hauler line's top and tubular-steel struts were designed to offer maximum visibility and protection from the elements, and also offer a modern, stylish look to complement the appeal of the course itself.

Large headlights integrated into the vehicle's cowl are specially designed and positioned for maximum light dispersion in front of and around the vehicle's front, for high visibility at dawn and dusk. For even better visibility in low-light conditions, the vehicles can be equipped with optional high-output LED headlights.

"As Cushman celebrates its 110th anniversary, it is exciting to launch the Cushman Hauler line and build on Cushman's legacy in the golf industry," said Michael R. Parkhurst, vice president of sales for Cushman. "The Hauler is the newest example of Cushman's long-standing tradition of building high-quality, highly respected vehicles for turf maintenance and facility management."

The Hauler line features five different models, offering a variety of payload capacities and powertrain options:

Hauler 800 - The Cushman Hauler 800 is available with either a quiet, zero-emissions 48-volt electric drivetrain or a high-torque, fuel-efficient 13-hp Kawasaki® engine with a hemispheric combustion chamber. With a maximum capacity of 800 pounds, a 5.9-cubic-foot cargo bed and bench seating for two, the Hauler 800 is an ideal runabout vehicle for smaller tasks, and tracking and managing crews on the course.

Hauler 1000 - For larger jobs that require additional payload, the Cushman Hauler 1000 provides a total capacity of 1,000 pounds and a larger cargo bed of 9.6 cubic feet. The Hauler 1000 is fully electric, with a zero-emissions 48-volt electric drivetrain with eight six-volt batteries for more power and extended range between charges. For tasks that require even more cargo space, the Hauler 1000 can be built with an optional 14.9-cubic-foot aluminum cargo bed. The Hauler 1000's bench seat can accommodate up to two people.

Hauler 1200 - The Cushman Hauler 1200 is the largest vehicle in the Hauler line, with a 1,200-pound capacity and a 9.6-cubic-foot cargo bed. The Hauler 1200 is powered by a powerful yet fuel-efficient 13-hp Kawasaki engine, and seats up to two people. The vehicle is also offered with an optional 14.9-cubic-foot aluminum cargo bed to handle jobs that require more cargo space.

Hauler 800X - For tasks on more difficult terrain, the Hauler 800X provides additional ground clearance and more aggressive trail tires for better traction. The Hauler 800X seats up to two people, has a total capacity of 800 pounds, and is equipped with a 5.9-cubic-foot cargo bed. The 800X is available with a 13-hp Kawasaki® gas-powered engine.

Hauler 1200X - When the job requires a vehicle that can navigate over and through the toughest terrain, look to the Cushman Hauler 1200X. The Hauler 1200X is available as a fully electric model powered by a 48-volt drivetrain that offers a full six inches of ground clearance and a total capacity of 1,000 pounds, or a gas-powered model that offers 5.3 inches of ground clearance and an 800-pound capacity. Both models feature trail tires and a 9.6-cubic-foot cargo bed; for jobs that require more cargo space, the vehicle is also offered with an optional 14.9-cubic-foot aluminum cargo bed.

To meet the specific needs of any facility, Cushman Haulers can be customized with a wide variety of options and accessories, ranging from towing implements, locking glove boxes and powered dump beds to enclosed cabs and ball-picker cages on some models.

The Hauler line will be available in October through E-Z-GO factory-direct sales offices and fleet-golf distributors. For more information on the Cushman line of light-transportation vehicles for commercial, industrial and turf applications, please visit www.cushman.com.
