Hustler Turf Equipment announced it has purchased a utility vehicle product line from a European construction equipment manufacturer. Hustler has acquired tooling and design for the utility vehicle, with plans to expand its line of products.

“We have developed patented technology to set Hustler well apart from other vehicles in the market. We simply needed a well-built vehicle to incorporate the technology”, said Adam Mullet, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “One look at the design and build quality of these vehicles and we knew right away it was a perfect match. The suspension, drivability, speed, and high quality will put this vehicle in its own category”, he added.

The vehicle will be manufactured at the facility in Hesston, Kansas, with production slated to begin in the fall of 2015.
