Greenworks Commercial recently unveiled its first ever Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV) this month.
The company says their new UTV line was first previewed in a prototype form at the 2018 GIE+EXPO last October, and the new CU 800 UTV is hitting the market this month.
Greenworks says the CU 800 is the first ever lithium-ion battery powered commercial grade utility vehicle with a UL-certified 13.8kw battery. The company says the UTV is designed to both navigate difficult rocky terrain and quickly cover distances at a top speed of 30 mph while transporting tools.
Greenworks says that transporting gear is made easy with the CU 800, as it can carry 500 pounds or tow up to 1,500 pounds., allowing for tools to be stored on either the UTV itself or attached to a trailer.
The company says the CU 800 is fully customizable and offers a wide array of bells and whistles to fit specific needs. Greenworks says the CU 800 is manufactured with A-Arm front and rear suspension system and has 4WD or 2WD capability to provide the user with diversity with where and how they can drive it.
Greenworks says the lithium-ion battery powered vehicle cuts down on noise, reduces fuel costs and eliminates harmful emissions all together, and the company adds that the CU 800 can travel up to 60 miles on just one charge alone.
“The new Greenworks Commercial CU 800 is revolutionary, allowing our users to have a customizable, dynamic UTV that is solely lithium-ion battery powered,” says Tony Marchese, commercial business unit leader for Greenworks America. “With this first-of-its-kind vehicle, we now can offer the industry a safe, reliable option for their towing, hauling and outdoor recreation needs.”
The company says the CU 800 will be available beginning this month through the Carswell, Carswell OEI, PACE and Steven Willand independent dealer networks. The CU 800 is priced at $24,999 and comes with a two-year warranty on the machine and battery.
