This newly designed UTV features two-row bench seating and is equipped with a powerful 22 HP Daedong diesel engine, CVT transmission with four-wheel drive and standard hydraulic power steering for smooth and responsive handling. With two-inch rear hitch receiver, the MECHRON 2240 has a 1,300-pound towing capacity. The heavy-duty cargo bed has a 1,325-pound payload capacity and comes with an optional hydraulic dump kit. The MECHRON 2240 is also equipped with four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, adjustable wishbone suspension, large tires and enhanced frame rails for higher ground clearance and added support.
“KIOTI has built its reputation on exceeding customer expectations. We value our customers and listen to their needs. The MECHRON 2200PS and 2240 make for the first UTV expansion in the KIOTI family, and is another example of how KIOTI continually rises to the occasion,” adds Snyder.
