FOR utility vehicle buyers, LAMMA 2019 saw a relatively new name on display, Quadzilla.

It was exhibiting a new diesel UTV, which comes road legal as standard and boasts many standard features, such as a winch, power steering and a fully enclosed cab which are often only sold as options on other makes.

Already more established selling the CF Motor range of ATVs, Quadzilla’s move into the ag market with an utility vehicle is with the Quadzilla diesel 800-UTV, which is a price competitive workhorse and comes with the benefits of running on farm diesel. In a practical sense, it has has an 800kg tow capacity and there’s a 400kg rated load area on the rear of the machine which has gas assisted tipper actuation.

Another main selling point is its electric power steering, which is a standard feature, with an adjustable steering wheel also part of the package. It looks simple to operate and has electronic two and four-wheel-drive selection, plus both a front and rear differential lock to get you out of trouble. Add in the standard 3000lb winch and this one looks as if it will handle just about anything.

Power comes from a Japanese manufactured Perkins three-cylinder diesel and this is translated to the ground via a continuously variable transmission which is manufactured in Canada. This has several settings – high, low, neutral, reverse and handbrake – while the 26-inch black steel wheels have hydraulic disc brakes all round. The suspension used is double-A wishbones up front, with 151mm of travel, while the rear axle gets a generous 146mm of travel. It comes with a RRP of £11,499.

Petrol-engined UTVs are already sold by the company – a petrol 550cc range starter is complimented by an 800cc pegtrol machine, with both having EFi engines and are road legal. They cost from £7999 and £9499, respectively.

Also on show at LAMMA was the CF Motor range of ATVs, including the road legal Euro 4 CForce Terrain 450, a short-wheel-base, CVT auto quad which also has electric power steering on the higher spec’ models, racks, tow ball and winch. The engine is rated at 31hp.

For more demanding situations, Quadzilla has the facelifted Euro 4 Terrain 450EPS, which, as its name suggests, has electric power steering as standard and 39 hp from a fuel injected single cylinder engine. Slightly longer in wheel base, this is also road legal for two people back to back, with a rear back rest, at £5099.

The business also sells this range up to 800cc, with a V-twin providing the power. The CForce 850XC has a new engine producing more power and torque than the X8 it complements and rear trailing arm suspension gives a more comfortable ride and handling with better grip with more tyre in contact thanks to 7.9-inches of suspension travel. The shocks have also been also upgraded and have adjustable gas settings giving 11-inches of ground clearance.

The range topper also gets as standard dual USB sockets, a 12v socket and a multi-function dash, with electronic power steering, front winch, rear tow bar with seven-pin trailer socket and LED lights all-round as standard. The posher aspect continues with alloy wheels. It hits the streets at £7899.
