Exmark Expands Line with Two New Utility Vehicles
New 500S and 700S models deliver performance and versatility for work and play
Beatrice, Neb.(FEBRUARY 3, 2015) — Exmark has expanded its 2015 product line to include two side-by-side utility vehicles. The new models deliver the productivity professionals demand with switch-on-the-fly two- or four-wheel drive, and a customizable two-in-one tilting cargo box that transforms from box to flatbed in minutes.
“The 500S and 700S utility vehicles were developed to complement Exmark’s industry-leading commercial mowers and lawn care equipment,” said Exmark Director of Marketing, Daryn Walters. “They deliver the performance, productivity and long-term durability our customers demand in a package that’s just as good at having fun as it is at getting work done.”
Ideal for a wide variety of work or recreation activities, including hauling, pulling, plowing, riding or playing, the new Exmark 500S and 700S utility vehicles feature a dual-range automatic transmission. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) design responds to inputs including vehicle speed, load and engine RPM in real time to deliver optimal acceleration and fuel efficiency. The 700S adds an electric locking front differential for maximum traction and pulling power, regardless of conditions.
The 700S has a total payload capacity of 1,500 pounds (1,100 pounds for the 500S). The transformable design of the tilting rear cargo box can be converted to a flatbed in minutes for enhanced versatility. Integrated front and rear two-inch receivers give users the ability to hook up trailers or attachments at either end of the machine.
Both Exmark utility vehicles feature powerful liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engines with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI). With the ability to optimize the fuel/air mixture for the conditions, in real time, EFI increases fuel efficiency and delivers excellent throttle response combined with reduced emissions. The 700S utilizes a robust 695cc single overhead cam (SOHC) engine, while the 500S relies on a powerful 443cc SOHC powerplant.
The machines feature four wheel hydraulic disc brakes and dual A-arm front and rear suspension with 10-inches of travel and 10-inches of ground clearance. The fully-independent suspension provides exceptional ground clearance, allowing the Exmark utility vehicles to traverse virtually any terrain with confidence. The 700S also features upgraded alloy wheels.
