Curtis Industries Announces New Cab System for Gator HPX/XUV Utility Vehicle Series

Product innovation resulting in a feature packed cab with a lower price tag

Curtis Industries has introduced a new commercial grade Cab System for John Deere Gator XUV and Gator HPX models. This all steel cab enclosure fits 2013 and prior year models and provides all-season protection. All Curtis Cabs provide all-weather solutions to owners' needs for better ventilation, flexibility, strength, and long lasting value.

Commercial grade at an affordable price
Curtis Cabs for the Gator XUV/HPX line up are made in America from all steel construction and provide unmatched durability, mounting directly to the vehicles' factory OPS in about three hours. Priced about 20% less than all-glass cabs, the Curtis Cab has proven tight seal doors that won’t shatter like an all glass door and can be removed in under a minute.  

Superior ventilation
The Curtis Cab offers superior ventilation with the use of wide, dual sliding windows in both the doors and rear panel, providing maximum airflow from all angles.  Unlike an all-glass cab system, this flexible flow-through ventilation eliminates any “greenhouse” effect to driver and passenger, keeping the interior of the cab more comfortable in all seasons.  Its durable, venting glass windshield is manufactured with double-strength reinforced laminated glass and meets industry safety regulations. The laminated windshield offers a locking, venting position and includes a heavy-duty 12V wiper.

Cab customization
Innovative options for the new cab include a tuck-away heater that is discreetly mounted to provide more legroom, protecting the passenger’s knees in off-road riding environments and provides multidirectional airflow and flexible outlet options including defrost.  A full range of LED safety strobe and work lights, mirrors and snow and ice equipment may be purchased separately.

Innovation and customer support
Supporting our OEM partners, dealers and their customers and users around the world with innovative products is a keen focus at Curtis, according to Michael Alexander, Vice President of Marketing and Sales.  

"Our increased investment in innovative designs and quality systems is now progressing into a global network that meets our customer’s needs for affordable commercial grade products," he said.  "We have also invested in our commercial organization, reorganized and added Business Development Managers and dealer support programs to better serve our quality-conscious customers."

Larger, 4-passenger cab available soon
In the next weeks, Curtis Industries will roll out its Gator XUV Series four-passenger cab system.  Like the two-passenger cab, the four-passenger model will feature Curtis' renowned distinctions in quality, value, and flexible performance.

"We are really excited about our new products and those in our ever expanding pipeline which is fueled with ideas generated from customer focus groups and outcome driven innovation exercises," says Mr. Alexander.  "We are listening to and collaborating with our OEM partners, dealers and their customers and product users; and are responding with the products, delivery services and pricing they tell us they need."
