Diesel Power with Hydrostatic Transmission



An isolation-mounted, fuel efficient YANMAR® diesel power plant delivers low vibration and lower speed torque. Combined with a durable hydrostatic drive transmission that is optimized for acceleration and top speed, they provide all the torque and power you need to move over tough terrain, haul more cargo and perform all the rigorous jobs that BRUTUS was designed to do.



Multi-Link Coil Over De Dion Suspension



As the first side x side utility vehicle to use this work-grade suspension, BRUTUS models deliver a smooth ride far beyond what the competition can offer – both with and without a load. The rear suspension supports a 1,250 pound cargo capacity and minimizes suspension sag when fully loaded. The suspension also maintains ground clearance when trailering with its best-in-class 2,000 pound towing capacity.



Superior Cargo Storage



Pallet-sized rear dump box with 1,250 lb capacity features exclusive Lock & Ride® cargo system that accommodates many hard-working accessories that go on and off in seconds. There’s also plenty of room to stow your tools, gloves and other worksite necessities in ample under-seat and in-dash storage.



On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive



True AWD keeps you moving, automatically engaging all four wheels when you need more forward traction and reverting back to 2WD when you don’t. When in 2WD, the VersaTrac Turf Mode switch allows you to unlock the rear differential for easier, tighter turns without tearing up the turf.



Treadle Pedal



Like nothing else in its category, BRUTUS allows you to travel in forward or reverse with a single pedal, without ever shifting gears or taking your hands off of the steering wheel.



Superior Comfort and Ergonomics



Cab ergonomics deliver outstanding driver and passenger comfort, including tilt steering with the highest range of motion (10”), extra legroom, and easy cab entry to get in and out quickly. Driver centered gauges provide quick readouts and help keep your eyes on the task at hand.



Lock & Ride® PRO-FIT™ Cab



Setting the standard in comfort and convenience, the Lock & Ride PRO-FIT cab components are pre-designed for the BRUTUS frame, lock in tightly for a secure cab system, and install in minutes. Choose any combination of windshield, roof, rear panel and doors to best meet your needs and budget.

Are any of you planning on getting the full cab for your Brutus? I am going to get a windshield but I don't think I really need to have the doors and roof. I should be fine without them.

Since we will be using it year round, part of that being winter, we will need it. Especially for those windy days, it will suck to have a cabin full of snow and snow constantly blowing in your face

depends what sort of environment you are using it in.

its nice to have sometimes though it does create turbalance at high speeds.

its good to have that option for those who need it.

even if you live in warm climate the full cab can keep the Brutus crisp inside with the A/C. Personally we get some cold weather and im going to keep myself good and warm up in my cab. Full cab for me.

how are people finding the cushion on the seats? soft enough?
Good question, the seats cushion doesn't look that thick from these pictures which does raise concern. I just hope it's comfortable enough. being a work vehicle that meant to be used for long periods of time, you need to be comfortable

looks like the Brutus has a seat from a dozer. Those are made to be pretty comfy for the guys who perch in there all day. Not really too concerned.

a seat like that would be wicked but the weight it adds wouldn't.
im still waiting to hear what a real owner or review has to say

Looking at the photos of the brutus seat, it looks thin and your butt might fall asleep after a ling sitting.
So far that is what it looks like, always best to try it out for your self. seeing how 2014 is not too far away, there should be some sort of powersports Expo we can see the Brutus in person if we can't already at dealers.
