The RSX860 is powered by an 839-cc (51.2-cu in.), V-twin, four-cycle motorcycle gasoline engine. It produces 46.2 kW (62 hp*) and 80.6 Nm (59.5 lb-ft) of torque. The advanced electronic controls and fuel-injection systems deliver superb starting, idling, and throttle response during operation.
The engine offers the following performance and reliability features:
*Engine horsepower is provided by the engine manufacturer to be used for comparison purposes only. Actual operating horsepower will be less. Refer to the engine manufacturer’s website for additional information.
Having the utility vehicles come pre-wired for a winch from the factory greatly reduces the winch install time. Two of the RSX860M chassis come from the factory prewired for a winch: all power steering models and the winch-ready chassis.
Components included in the winch-ready chassis factory installed:
A dealer-installed version of the WARN® ProVantage 1587.6-kg (3500-lb) winch for these chassis is available through Parts. Please reference the Price Pages/Configurator for the attachment number.

The Gator™ RSX High-Performance Series Utility Vehicles are equipped with rack and pinion steering with power steering and a dual A-arm front suspension. These automotive-type systems exhibit excellent handling characteristics, as well as responsive steering and low steering effort.
The tire scrubbing, which also creates unwanted heat and wear in the tire, can be eliminated by turning the inside wheel at a greater angle than the outside one (Ackerman steering).
NOTE: Some competitors use parallel steering instead of Ackerman steering.
Bump steering defines the change in the forward steering angle (thus wheel position) as the suspension travels through its full motion. A large amount of angular change (5 degrees to 7 degrees) will alter the vehicle's direction and excessively move the steering wheel.
John Deere’s utility vehicle warranty gives the operator confidence from bumper to bumper. The model year 2018 Gator ™ RSX860 joins the rest of the current utility vehicle lineup with a 12-month or 1000-hour warranty. This gives assurance the RSX860 will be ready when it is needed the most.
The cargo box consists of a high-density polyethylene copolymer composite material that eliminates rust, dents, and reduces noise. This large, one-piece design has rounded inside corners to ensure material removal when tilted. The composite box is highly ribbed and supported with a welded steel-ladder structure to ensure hard-driving performance and longevity. The three highly styled exterior pieces are made of thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) for extra durability.
The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items. It features truck-like performance and can be operated with one hand.
The tailgate’s pivot point is made of hardened steel for durability and designed for tool-less removal. The standard lanyards can also be disconnected without tools to remove the tailgate for convenient loading and unloading tasks.
The cargo box ease of use is critical to performing tasks quickly and efficiently. Starting with the truck-style tailgate, the removal of content in this cargo box is much easier. The manual release functions as the lift lever as well, done in a smooth, one step motion. It can even be tilted from both sides of the vehicle. To reduce the overall effort of lift, the pivot point of the cargo box is closer to the center. The combination of easy-to-use attributes makes this cargo box best in class.
With the removal of two bolts, the cargo box can easily be detached from the vehicle frame for ease of servicing.

To complement the capable powertrain on the RSX860E and RSX860M, the RSX is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension. This unique suspension setup provides an unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners.
The engineering team in collaboration with engineering firms that consult with Formula 1®, NASCAR®, and INDYCAR® teams, built a sport-tuned suspension system for class-leading operator comfort, no matter the terrain, and handling that makes one think they are on rails.
