Five of the Best UTVs for Farmers


Recommended Posts

Farmers have long known that a good UTV is an invaluable tool. Here are five of the best UTVs for farmers that will surely help them get the job done.

When it comes to farming, things are pretty serious. Farmers have no time for messing around, so equipment better work like it should and be dependable. With all the technologies coming out for sport and recreation UTVs, farmers are more interested in things like cargo capacity, engine reliability and towing performance – things the manufacturers are paying attention to with the latest utility UTVs. Here are five of the best UTVs for farmers on the market today.

2019 Textron Prowler Pro XT

Textron Prowler Pro XT Dump Bed

Textron has been a company on the move for a while now. First it entered the market with the Stampede, then it acquired Arctic Cat, and now we have an all-new utility UTV that was designed with help from Caterpillar. The Prowler Pro has a lot of things in common with another machine on this list, most notably, the engine. It is an 812cc Chery, three-cylinder automotive-style motor that produces 50 horsepower, according to Textron. It will handle 1,000 pounds of cargo in the dumping cargo box and it will easily tow another 2,000 pounds with a 2-inch receiver. It has four-wheel drive, electronic power steering in the XT package, and a locking differential. The front seats flip up for additional space. This is a serious working machine.

2019 Kawasaki Mule Pro-FXT EPS

Kawasaki Mule Pro-FXT

Any amount of research will show that there are a lot of people who really like the Kawasaki Mule Pro-FXT, or the FX model. The Mule Pro-FXT has Kawasaki’s trans cab configuration that lets you switch easily from a three-person cab with a longer bed, to a six-seat capacity machine with a smaller cargo bed. That bed will hold 350 pounds of cargo when in the six-person setup, and 1,000 pounds when used as a three-person machine. It will tow 2,000 pounds on the 2-inch receiver. Remember that 812cc Chery engine in the Textron? Where do you think they got the idea? That’s right, Kawasaki uses the same basic engine in the Mule Pro-FX series. The Mule Pro-FXT is a big, beefy machine with four-wheel drive, locking differentials and a serious get-the-job-done attitude – not to mention an industry-leading three-year warranty. It is easily one of the best UTVs for farmers.

2019 Yamaha Viking EPS

2016 Yamaha Viking EPS

When you talk about dependability, a trait farmers very much appreciate, the Yamaha is without a doubt one of the industry leaders. The Viking has proven to be a dependable, stable utility machine. It hasn’t seen many updates over the past few years, but when it ain’t broke… Powered by a 686cc single-cylinder engine that makes tons of low-end torque, the Viking has enough power to get the job done. The real star is the Yamaha Ultramatic CVT transmission. It is as solid as they come. You never hear of a Yamaha breaking a belt. The steel cargo bed can handle 600 pounds of stuff and comes with a thick rubber mat to keep things where you put them. The Viking will tow another 1,500 pounds, too. Get the Viking with EPS for your own comfort. It’ll make it easier to steer should you need to engage the differential lock when in four-wheel drive. It now comes with a three-year limited warranty, too.

2019 Mahindra Retriever 1000 LE Flexhauler

Mahindra Retriever 1000 Flexhauler

Mahindra makes the world’s most popular tractors, so when it got into making UTVs, it worked with Intimidator to come out with a unit that instantly made Mahindra a player in the space. The Retriever, the latest form the collaboration, is a serious machine for the farm and work market. Powered by a 999cc, 83-horsepower engine, the Retriever can handle 2,500 pounds behind the 2-inch receiver for towing. The steel Flexhauler bed will handle 1,200 pounds and can convert to a flatbed in minutes. It even has hydraulic dump assist for dumping those heavy loads of gravel. It has four-wheel drive and a locking differential. The LE version adds a few stylish touches, but also adds a heavy-duty front brush guard and an additional 2-inch receiver up front, making it one of the best UTVs for farmers.

2019 Can-Am Defender HD10 XT

2019 Can-Am Defender HD10 XT

The Can-Am Defender is another great machine for the farm crowd. It has a 72-horsepower 976cc Rotax V-Twin and has locking four-wheel drive. It can tow 2,000 pounds and haul 1,000 pounds in the dumping cargo box, too. The best part about the Defender is all the little things the designer thought to include that farmers will really like. The glove box doubles as a tool box and is removable, so you can haul it over to the job. The seats in the XT are very sturdy and flip up, so you can haul more stuff, or have the farm dog ride with you. The XT package also includes a 4,500-pound winch on the front and the digital throttle control has work mode, that controls speed, while still giving you access to all the torque and horsepower. The Defender is easily one of the five best UTVs for farmers.
