Serving as a replacement for the venerable Cushman Turf-Truckster — the turf industry’s original heavy-duty utility vehicle — the all-new
Jacobsen Truckster XD sets a new standard for capacity, power, strength and comfort.

The new Truckster XD boasts a massive, class-leading 1,610kg standard payload capacity, supported by the toughest bed in the industry, with steel up
to 75% thicker than comparable boxes and 20% more volume.

Two class-leading power units are available: the diesel version — more commonly used throughout Europe, with 24.8hp and 71.5nm of torque; and
the petrol model — which is used predominantly in the Americas and Asia-Pacific, providing 32.5hp and 70nm of torque.

The new Truckster XD was built to handle the daily rigours on the golf course, therefore the Jacobsen engineers have put a priority on comfort, giving
the operator area 25% more room than the competition.

“When we started this project, the first thing we did was ask hundreds of superintendents, greenkeepers and sports turf managers what they wanted from
a heavy-duty utility vehicle,” said Richard Comely, Director of Global Product Management at Ransomes Jacobsen.

“The feedback was unanimous: they told us they wanted a truck with more capacity, power and comfort. Nothing on the market was able to fulfill their
needs properly. Based on the extensive field testing and feedback we’ve received over the past year, we’ve delivered exactly what turf professionals
asked for.

“We have two main goals with this new vehicle: to make turf managers’ jobs easier and to satisfy their unmet needs. When you look at what is currently
available on the market today, there’s nothing as tough, powerful or comfortable as the Jacobsen Truckster XD. As a result, we believe it will
serve as a game changer in the heavy duty utility vehicle category.”

Following the official launch at the Golf Industry Show, the first units will be available in the UK and Europe in the second half of 2015. A full
range of accessories and attachments will also be available with kits enabling the retrofitting of existing and competitor equipment.
