Taylor-Dunn Offers a New Way to Move People, Equipment and Materials


Minneapolis, MN (May 25, 2017) – Taylor-Dunn® is expanding its utility vehicle offerings with the company’s first co-produced vehicle with Polaris®. The new G-100 is packed with the durability, comfort and safety features needed to get the job done.

 

When it comes to moving people and equipment, Taylor-Dunn is known for providing unique solutions with optimal performance. The new G-100 utility vehicle brings plenty of power and performance for every outdoor work task.

 

Durability

The G-100 UTV boasts a proven liquid-cooled, Electronic Fuel Injected Polaris Pro-Star® 32 horsepower gasoline motor, with plenty of power and torque for hauling and towing goods. Also standard on the G-100 is a locking differential, MacPherson Strut front suspension with 9-inches of travel and dual a-arm independent rear suspension with 10-inches of travel. Taylor-Dunn backs the new vehicle with a 2-year factory warranty.

 

Safety

This new machine puts safety first with a standard Roll Over Protection System (ROPS) cage, 3-point safety belts for both driver and rider and a factory-installed polyurethane roof and windshield. Four-wheel hydraulic disk brakes allow for quick stopping power when needed. Optional accessories such as beacon lights and reverse warning alarm will increase visibility.

 

Productivity

The G-100 has a 1,000 lb payload and 1,500 lb towing capacity, and an 8.8 gallon fuel tank which limits the need for fuel stops. This new utility vehicle accepts almost all Polaris® Lock & Ride™ accessories, allowing you to customize the vehicle to meet the demands of any job.

 

“We’re excited about the options this new vehicle brings to our customers,” says Tim Everett, vice-president, sales and marketing for Taylor-Dunn. The G-100 is the perfect landscaping vehicle for schools and universities, parks and recreation, cemeteries and farming applications, just to name a few.

 

The new G-100 is available at select Taylor-Dunn dealers beginning May 25, 2017. Check out all of the specs at Taylor-Dunn.com.
