The BRUTUS™ HD PTO takes on a whole new level of productivity with a PTO-powered, front-end Pro-Tach™ attachment system. Quickly and easily transform from one hard-working vehicle into an entire fleet of commercial machines – plow and blow snow, move dirt, level surfaces, lift pallets, mow lawns or large fields, and sweep sidewalks – getting more done in less time and for less money.

More Capable
  • Diesel Power with Hydrostatic Transmission: The all-new BRUTUS HDPTO is now powered by a 1028cc Kohler 3 cylinder overhead cam liquid cooled engine. This proven, high performance diesel engine utilizes indirect injection that delivers smooth power and reduced combustion noise. The automotive overhead camshaft design also reduces mechanical drivetrain noise.
  • Treadle Pedal: Like nothing else in its category, BRUTUS lets you travel in forward or reverse with a single pedal, without ever shifting gears or taking your hands off the wheel.
  • Superior Cargo Storage With Electric Lift: Pallet-sized rear dump box with 1,250 lb. capacity features exclusive Lock & Ride® cargo system that accommodates many hard-working accessories that go on and off in seconds.
  • On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive: True AWD keeps you moving, automatically engaging all four wheels when you need more forward traction and reverting back to 2WD when you don’t.
More Versatile
  • PTO-Powered Front Attachments: BRUTUS™ HDPTO is the first in its class to offer front-end PTO capability. The high-efficiency, mechanical PTO delivers smooth performance directly from the engine to versatile, optional front attachments.
  • Hydraulically Controlled Front Attachments: BRUTUS™ HDPTO takes productivity to the next level—ready to plow, lift or scoop with three optional, hydraulically controlled front-end attachments that instantly transform one vehicle into multiple hard working machines.
  • Pro-Tach™ Attachment System: The innovative Pro-Tach™ attachment system allows quick connection and disconnection of front-end implements, so you spend less time gearing up your vehicle and more time on the chore at hand
More Comfortable
  • Multi-Link Coil Over De Dion Suspension: As the first side x side utility vehicle to use this work-grade suspension, BRUTUS models deliver a smooth ride far beyond what the competition can offer—with and without a load.
  • Superior Comfort and Ergonomics: Cab ergonomics deliver outstanding driver and passenger comfort, including tilt steering with the highest range of motion (10”), extra legroom and easy cab entry to get in and out quickly.
  • Joystick: New ergonomically designed for controlling front attachments. Adjust attachments up, down, tilt forward and back, as well as left to right without having to take your hand off the joystick. (Can be fitted on previous BRUTUS models – part number 2881695.)
