Gravely debuts Atlas JSV

October 22, 2014 -  By

Gravely is carving a new space into the utility vehicle market, rolling out its Atlas JSV—job site vehicle.

Ariens, the parent company of Gravely, debuted the newest addition to its commercial product lineup during a press event preceding GIE+EXPO at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Ky., Oct. 21.

The Atlas JSV is available in four models, with the JSV6000 accommodating six adults across two bench seats and the JSV3000 able to sit three passengers on one bench seat. Both are offered with gas or diesel engines—a 1-cylinder, 570cc Polaris DOHC gas engine or 3-cylinder, 1028cc Kohler Diesel engine, specifically. All engines provide a 10-gallon fuel capacity and ground speed of 35 mph.

“This vehicle was designed from the ground up with the contractor and facility manager experience in mind,” said Bill Engler, director of commercial sales. “Industry-leading features ensure that it will handle even the toughest jobs. Everything about the Atlas is designed for the job site. From pedal spacing that accommodates work boots to the details of the cargo bed.”

The Atlas JSV boasts a 1,900 lb. payload and 2,000 lb. towing capacity. Gravely partnered with Polaris for two years, drawing on facets of the Brutus, to include an on-demand, all-wheel drive system and De Dion rear suspension on the Atlas JSV, Engler said.

The all-steel MX-18 JobBox features a 1,250 lb. capacity and four integrated tie-down points to secure cargo. The extra-large 48” x 57” bed can accommodate a standard wooden pallet, according to the company. Additionally, electric cargo bed lift is standard on all Atlas JSV models.

Other features include four headlights; three-point seatbelts; added storage under seats, including access to an automobile battery; and a factory-installed bumper, standard on all models and touting a new Gravely logo, reinforcing its commercial outdoor power equipment brand.

A score of accessories are available for the Atlas JSV, too, including cab enclosure accessories that fit into a profiled tubular frame. Other accessories include winches, snow plow and front receiver hitch as well as tool rack, chain saw press, gun mount and cargo box.

The Atlas JSV3000 starts at $12,999 and the Atlas JSV6000 starts at $14,799. Each has a one-year warranty, plus a one-year warranty on the gas engine and three-year warranty on the diesel engine.

The unit is slated to hit dealerships the week of Nov. 3. The company anticipates it to be in more than 400 stores by yearend.
