In the following video, Mike Stevens (SnowPlowNews) joins Ariens’ Joe Pope to discuss the 2016 Gravely Atlas JSV (Job Site Vehicle).
This side-by-side UTV has an appropriate name. The Gravely Atlas Utility Vehicle is built specifically for the job site. The Atlas is the stuff of Greek legend. This machine isn’t holding up the sky, but it will hold just about anything else. The name implies that it’s a heavy lifter and it is. It’s definitely not made for Sunday trips to the park. The Atlas is essentially a heavy-duty Polaris Utility Vehicle, as it employs a Polaris drive-train. Let’s have a look at some of the impressive numbers the Atlas JSV boasts:
1. Over 1900 lb payload capacity
2. 1250 lb capacity job box
3. 1-ton towing capacity
With credentials like this, you can fit a full pallet of salt in the box along with 3 adult passengers. The MX18 heavy-duty steel, extended job box is bigger than a normal UTV, allowing for a salt/sand spreader when cold winds blow.
Gravely Atlas JSV Features
1. All steel MX-18 job box leads its class in capacity
2. Electric deck lift for dumping cargo with the touch of a button
3. 18 cu feet cargo space
4. Dual-range Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
5. Available in gas or diesel models
6. On-demand AWD allows for AWD when you need it and fuel efficient 2WD when you don’t
7. Heavy-duty rear suspension allows for full ground clearance even when it’s maxed out
8. Unmatched comfort. Seating for 3 (or 6) adults
9. Tilt steering, cupholders, and plenty of cab storage space
10. 10 gallon fuel capacity
Heavy-Duty Performance & Comfort
The Atlas JSV was designed for a niche market that was looking for something bigger and badder ― for extreme performance. Whether it’s construction, governmental or major landscaping, job sites often have extreme conditions. A profiled tubular steel frame offers easy installation of cab enclosure accessories. It might have a pretty serious work ethic, but the Atlas is also designed to offer comfort as well.
Blizzard Assault Vehicle
Polaris UTVs are known for being well-built and durable. The Polaris drive-train under this machine gives the Atlas a firm foundation for tackling big jobs. It’s probably a bit much for the average homeowner or weekend warrior, but for professional snow removal, this thing is a beast. Equipped with snowplow and salt spreader, this thing looks like something from an apocalyptic movie set. Put yourself behind the wheel of the Gravely Atlas JSV and you’ll own any job site or blizzard that gets in your way. It might even have you muttering “who’s your daddy?” as you take on the next big job.
