John Deere Introduces Gator for Military Use

October 26, 2009

The new R-Gator features independent suspension, higher ground clearance and increased ground speed. Based on the proven M-Gator military vehicle platform, the R-Gator employs commercial off-the-shelf technology and includes precision guidance, navigation and obstacle avoidance technology that has been at work for two decades in John Deere's agricultural products. 

The R-Gator can be operated in manual, tele-operational or fully autonomous mode during day and night and supports military personnel through lightening the load, persistent stare, cargo carrying, point-man reconnaissance, roving patrols, resupply, casualty evacuation and more.


The R-Gator has 11" of ground clearance and its four-wheel, independent suspension is fully adjustable for improved mobility and superior fording capabilities.  The updated R-Gator also boasts a faster top speed, travelling up to 35 mph in manual mode.
