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 with Electric Lift Dump Box



Pallet-sized, electric lift 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.



PTO-Powered Front Attachments



BRUTUS HDPTO is the first in its class to offer front-end PTO capability. The high efficiency, mechanical PTO delivers smooth performance directly from the engine to a versatile line of optional front attachments. Sweep, mow, or blow with an angle broom, finishing mower, or snow blower.



Hydraulically Controlled Front Attachments



BRUTUS HD takes productivity to the next level, coming ready to work with three optional, hydraulically controlled front-end attachments that instantly transform one vehicle into multiple hard working machines. Plow, lift, or scoop with a commercial-grade snow blade, adjustable width pallet forks, or a durable materials bucket. An optional, dealer-installed PTO kit gives the operator even more attachment options.



Pro-Tach™ Attachment System



The innovate Pro-Tach™ attachment system allows quick and easy connection and disconnection of front-end implements, so you spend less time gearing up your vehicle and more time on the chore at hand. The intuitive joystick controls the attachment position from the seat of the cab.



Treadle Pedal



With many commercial applications demanding frequent back-and-forth motion, a treadle pedal significantly simplifies travel operation. 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.



Intuitive Controls



Ergonomic controls at the operator’s fingertips make operation easy and consistent with other work machines. Attachment adjustments are easy to make with an intuitive joystick, and float position gives free flow of hydraulic oil so the attachment matches the ground contour for optimum performance. An independent hand throttle allows the operator to provide attachments with full power regardless of vehicle speed.



Fully Enclosed Cab with All-Season Climate Control




In-dash heat, defrost and air conditioning systems work in conjunction with a completely enclosed, flush-mount cab system to keep the operator comfortable, and thus more productive, in a variety of weather conditions.

MORE FEATURES:

  • One-ton towing
  • Responsive hydraulic power steering lets the operator maneuver in a variety of conditions with limited effort.
  • Powerful Headlight Beam With High/Low Switch Operation (60/55 W)
  • 90 amp alternator provides best in class electrical power for starting and accessories

it will probably be just as effective as the heating system in most cars, this vehicle is pretty much car-like
Yea but the Brurus doesnt have the same type of insulation as most cars, plus you will have to invest in the covers...



the A/C will probably be nice in the summer even without the Brutus' enclosure...

the extra doors, windshield and panels might be best for the winter seasons to be kept from the chilling winds but it would be extra money to be spent on things you might want to take off here and there. I would be able to last without it.

Yup, it really depends on what your needs are. I know folks up north in Canada will be more likely to use it and anyone needing it a lot of winter duty

you could get real nice and roasty in the Brutus, with the heat cranked and the small cab, it will be a nice refuge from the missus in the winter.

Exactly, I just wonder how well sealed it is. I dont want to shut off the heat and right away have the cabin turn freezing cold.

The Brutus doesn't have to be as good as a car at keeping the heat in. I'm not running errands in it. As long as it keeps heat in better than the open cab tractor I've been using the last couple seasons I'm happy...

Besides if you're worried about the heat leaking out, don't shut the heat off....

I wouldn't worry too much about the cabin heat, once you can have it sealed in with the options they give you, you're set.
but i can't wait for reviews from real owners, and guys from the media
