Cushman’s 1600XD utility vehicle combines four-wheel-drive capability with a 22 hp, 1,007cc three-cylinder OHV diesel engine to handle large tasks on tough terrain. Its performance is further enhanced by an automatic, continuously variable transmission (CVT) with low- and high-gear ratios and a user-selectable locking rear differential which can be engaged in both 2WD and 4WD operation. It features four-wheel independent suspension and exceptional hauling and towing capacity, with a maximum vehicle load of 1,600 pounds.
The automatic, continuously variable transmission (CVT) can be placed in high gear for higher maximum speed, or low gear for greater torque and pulling power. Top speed is 25 mph in high gear, and 10.5 mph in low gear.
A tubular steel, rollover protection system (ROPS) and three-point seat belts protect operator and passengers. Headlights with high-beam functionality allow for maximum visibility in low-light situations.
The 1600XD can be equipped with an optional hydraulic power source, which circulates up to 6.5 gallons of fluid per minute to drive implements such as plows, augers and post-drivers. Quick-connect fittings allow implements to be quickly attached and detached from the hydraulic system without tools. The system also allows the vehicle’s cargo bed to be dumped under hydraulic power.
