Project Description





“Imagine the possibilities”



Imagine a tough, precision-built utility vehicle that combines the industry’s most popular features with the ability to lift, lower and dump its cargo at any point along its arc of motion. That’s what the most innovative team in the turf industry has created in the Hustler MDV with patented LeveLift bed technology. We call it the MDV (“Maximum Duty Vehicle”) for the simple fact that you won’t find a more rugged, more durable, more versatile utility vehicle in its class than this one.

The “utility” from other utility vehicles comes only after you have the vehicle loaded. But with MDV’s optional LeveLift technology, you get “utility” the moment you arrive at the job site. With a 750 lb lift capacity, LeveLift does the heavy lifting. Many loading and hauling jobs that used to require a crew of two or more can now be performed by just one person.

Hustler® MDV Features

Flip the switch and LeveLift brings the cargo box up, back and down, enabling you to load at ground level or at any point along the mechanism’s arc of motion. (LeveLift model only)

At over 50″ wide the MDV’s spacious cab is easy to get in and out of with heavy clothes, coats, etc.

The Hustler MDV features a heavy duty drive train designed for demanding use on farms, construction sites, university campuses and much more. Featuring a reliable Kohler KDW1003 diesel engine, Dana legacy American built rear axle, Hilliard front differential and all American made drive lines and half shafts it is clear that the Hustler MDV is built for a long life of dependable use. The large dual fan cooling system is designed to keep the engine cool under the most punishing conditions.

Top speed of 36 mph on the LeveLift model and 37 MPH on the standard bed model

Easy-to-reach serviceability points equals better accessibility to maintenance areas. The MDV is designed to allow routine service to be completed in 30 minutes. Open the maintenance panel door on the drivers side and you can easily access the: air filter, battery, main fuse panel, fuel filter and check the oil. Brake fluid and engine coolant reservoirs can easily be accessed  under the hood.

Sporting a 1028cc Kohler Diesel engine fed by an ample 14-gallon fuel tank (nearly twice the capacity of the leading UTV) the MDV not only gets you and your cargo there quicker, but it can remain in service longer without refueling — still on the job after other
UTVs have headed for the barn.

The MDV’s floating rear axle maintains a constant ground clearance even at maximum load.

The front fenders and side body panels on the Hustler MDV are manufactured using rotational molding technology. This process creates a much stronger, more impact resistant surface than the fiberglass fenders and body panels used on most utility vehicles.

LeveLift = Increased Productivity

“Imagine the Possibilities”

The MDV was designed with the farmer in mind. Here are some ways that the MDV with LeveLift technology can save your time and your back.

  • Load hay bales or feed at ground level and dump over fences or into raised feeders.
  • One person can easily transport small equipment (pumps, generators, feeders etc.) around the farm without risking back injury.
  • With LeveLift you can raise the bed to pickup bed height and easily transfer cargo or lower it to the ground.

  • Save on labor cost and employee back injury claims.
  • Load transport and unload equipment such as compactors and generators with only one person
  • Dump soil, sand, mulch or other materials onto the top of a pile (when the bed is raised) or as much as 4 feet behind the vehicle (when the bed is lowered close to the ground). The bed can be dumped at any position of the LeveLift arc.
  • The truck style floating rear axle allows transportation of heavy items without reducing ground clearing. Go where other vehicles can’t go.
