Hi all, I am new to your web site. Hope to glean some help and info from you if I can. I am presently an owner of a 2007 620i Gator but am looking at a possible trade to a Brutus with 95 hrs. on the clock. it comes with all the standard stuff plus a bucket scoop, power lift bed, rear light kit, and enclosed cab. It looks in pretty good condition. The dealer is asking $14,290 for it. Does that seem reasonable? Any issues that I should be aware of? I have been a little disappointed with the Gator and it's belt drive transmission. The Brutus drives more like I would expect for this type of vehicle and reminds me a lot of how my Kubota tractor drives.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or input.

That seems like a fair price for an HD with enclosed cab. Have you priced out what it would cost new with all the options? The bucket is pretty much useless, you will probably never use it if you have a tractor/loader.



I had a Gator, two Rangers, and a Kioti Mechron before buying the Brutus, all belt drive CVTs. I would never go back to a CVT in a work/utility vehicle, the hydrostatic drive is just so much better in so many ways. I don't think you will be disappointed unless you are expecting it to be fast.

It is definitely more work horse than quarter horse. My biggest problem with my Brutus is that I own a RZR as well. Interceptor is right about the bucket, can't hold a candle to my tractor bucket. I was going to sell my mower but started using it on the rougher terrain and am starting to like it. Really like the broom and am going to pick up a snow blade. Great ride, very versatile machine, as long as you're not in a hurry. It helps to switch the speedo over to km, makes you think you're humming along.

I to am looking at buying a Brutus and wondering if anyone could give their opinion on the price. The one I'm looking at is a couple of years old with 67hrs on it. it comes with a bucket, pallet forks, snowblower and mower for around $19000. Looking over the internet I haven't seen anything better. Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thank you.

Well, I pulled the trigger on the deal and traded the 620i Gator for the Brutus .Got over $7K for the Gator on the trade. So far, I am liking the Brutus especially going down hills. I never cared for the CVT drive set up on the gator(makes no sense to accelerate to slow down). The Brutus does fairly well on the straight and level (approx. 25 mph.) but does seem to bog down a bit going up hill but I can live with that. The noise level is a little intense also but I am looking to add some noise isolation to the cab and plug the open slot at the rear bottom of the cabin with some sort of molding. Now time to add some gegaws to it and customize it a little with some breakaway mirrors etc. does anyone know of an available kit for adding extended rails for the bed?
