Press Release –
Husqvarna announced the launch of its HUV utility vehicle series in early 2005, making off-road transport as easy as possible.
The HUV 4X4 models incorporate automatic four-wheel drive with automatic locking front & rear differentials, making the vehicles easy to use and highly dependable for off-road transportation needs.
The HUV 4X4 system automatically engages “on the fly” sending power to the tires with the most traction to keep the HUV moving through challenging terrain.
To prevent inefficient tire spin, enhance control and reduce tire wear, unique front and rear differential locks engage automatically in extremely challenging conditions.
According to Dave Zerfoss, president of Husqvarna, “The HUV series demonstrates yet again Husqvarna’s long standing tradition of superior design around customer needs. Not only is it the easiest to drive in the industry, but it is also the most comfortable and can handle any driving conditions that a user might encounter.”
Husqvarna offers three standard HUV models: HUV4220, HUV4420, and HUV4420-D. All ideal for sportsmen, farmers, ranchers, landscapers, or any outdoor occupation requiring the ability to transport heavy loads over difficult terrain.
Equipped with a 15.1 cu-ft. steel bed with a load capacity to transport up to 1,050 pounds, the HUV’s can reach speeds up to 25 mph and easily maneuver over all types of terrain.
The HUV4213 is equipped with a 400cc, 13hp Kawasaki® engine. The HUV4420 features a Honda® 614cc, 20hp engine and the HUV4420-D is equipped with the Kubota® 719cc 20hp diesel engine.
The HUV4213 features 4X2 drive-train, the HUV4420 and HUV4420-D feature a 4X4 drive-train with all wheel traction. For operator comfort, the HUV 4X4 models have a tilt steering column and an adjustable driver’s seat.
All three HUV models are built using a rust-proof Air-craft grade (T6061 aluminum) frame and chassis with the 4X4 models featuring a double A-arm front suspension. Additionally, the 4X4 models include 4-wheel hydraulic disc brakes.
