HUV4421GXL and HUV4421DXL

Both XL (extended length) models feature all-wheel drive, auto-locking differentials, certified roll-over protection system (ROPS), a rugged, aircraft-grade aluminum frame, and four-person seating. Tilt steering, front and rear bench seats, a roomy cab and 4-wheel disc brakes add to the comfort and ease of mind.

“For mining, construction, outfitting, agricultural and ranching professionals, these new HUVs offer the strength and reliability for demanding off-road applications,” said Jerry Sandy, product manager for Husqvarna. “With 800 pounds of bed load capacity and 1600 pounds of total vehicle capacity, customers are able to haul quite a bit of manpower and materials to and from the work site.”

These two models are available for order now at Husqvarna dealers.

HUV4421XP

A limited edition version of the two-passenger HUV4421XP offers premium options such as black diamond alloy wheels with directional mud tires, fog lights, tail/brake lights, horn and more. Each of the Limited Edition models features an engraved aluminum billet shifter and limited edition glove box badge identifying the unit number. It is also available with a gasoline or diesel engine.

HUV4414

This new offering for 2009 includes a 14-horsepower gas Vanguard engine in four-wheel drive or two-wheel drive options. The HUV 4414 includes the same features as the 4421 models, but it seats two and has a bed load capacity of 400 pounds.

Husqvarna HUVs are available in orange, green or camouflage colors.
