Cushman Unveils New Hauler Utility Vehicle Lineup

Cushman, a Textron Specialized Vehicles brand, is proud to introduce a new line of Hauler utility vehicles built with golf-specific features to give superintendents the ability to customize vehicles to their course’s specific work demands. The new Hauler 1200, Hauler 1200X, Hauler PRO and the Hauler PRO-X offer a truck-inspired design, practical dash, large bed and affordable accessories.

Cushman vehicles are designed and manufactured by Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company.

“Extensive research with superintendents steered the design of the new Cushman Hauler line and highlighted the need for a new level of versatility and performance that could tackle a variety of jobs,” said Michael R. Parkhurst, Vice President, Golf for Textron Specialized Vehicles. “We worked hard to incorporate their feedback to deliver a vehicle centered on customization without sacrificing the must-have features for which our Hauler vehicles are known.”

When customizing the new truck-inspired Hauler, superintendents can select from a sound-dampening 12-cubic-foot durable roto-molded polyethylene bed, or upgrade to the 15-cubic-foot fully aluminum bed for extra space. The standard poly bed includes integrated divider slots to allow for increased organization and customizable bed storage. The aluminum bed features an L-track bed system that can accommodate hooks and brackets for convenient tie-down locations and space-saving accessories. Superintendents have the option to purchase affordable Cushman genuine bed accessories, or create their own custom solution.

Functionality extends beyond the bed in the new Hauler design. New features include:
• A standard rear hitch receiver to help crews tow whatever the day demands;
• Upgraded premium turf tires that provide traction without damaging turf;
• Optional power dump for heavy lifting;
• A unique storage pocket and net within the poly bed to store a stimp meter or other small equipment;
• Optional 12V or USB outlets, to ensure tablets and smartphones don’t lose power.

All Hauler PRO and Hauler PRO-X models feature a powerful 72-volt AC electric drive that can go 50 miles on a single charge. Additionally, the Hauler PRO can be equipped with an optional IntelliBrake™ system. The patented system encompasses two technologies: a motor brake that automatically slows the vehicle when traveling up or down steep grades, and a parking brake that automatically engages when the vehicle stops. This system also delivers full-time regenerative braking, redirecting energy back into the vehicle’s batteries whenever the brakes are applied, recharging the batteries during use and further extending the vehicle’s energy efficiency and range.

The new lineup of Hauler utility vehicles includes a highly functional dash that provides a clean, unobstructed line of sight for anyone behind the wheel. The new dash centralizes the control panel that houses everything from the directional key switch and standard horn to the optional state-of-charge meter and bed-lift switch.

Functionality of any new Hauler utility vehicle can be enhanced with customized bells and whistles. Additional affordable and versatile accessories include:

• Bed Dividers
• Brushguard
• Canopy Storage Net
• Cargo Mesh Net
• L-Track Aluminum Bed System
• Color Options
• D-Loops (for tie-downs)
• Flexible Tool Clamps
• Ladder/Hoop Rack
• Long-Handled Tool Holder
• Rearview Mirror
• ROPS-Certified Cab
• ROPS-Certified Ball Cage
• Weather Enclosure
• Ball Cage Attachment
