How gators work
Utility vehicles are easy to operate and usually have a box bed. Many third-party companies make attachments for the vehicles making it possible to tackle a large number of farm projects with one vehicle. Utility vehicles are smaller and faster than a tractor and better in tight spaces than a pickup truck making them ideal for moving around a farm, ranch, or large property.
Gators are utility vehicles with multiple uses. Gator is the name given to these vehicles by the manufacturer John Deere. Several other companies also make utility vehicles or cargo all-terrain vehicles.
