    JD has come out with a smaller Gator. 10hp, 15mph, and hold 400lbs. Don't know the price. Its sort of a glorified golf cart.

    They have 2 models. The 8hp and the 10hp. The 8hp is $4600 list and the 10hp is $5k list. It looks like the only difference between the 2 models is 2hp.

    Here's the link, They are the compact series CS and CX.

    The difference between the models other than hp is that the 10hp model has pressurized oil rather than splash.

    The ten horse also has diff lock, a 12V outlet, and higher back seats than the 8 hp.

    Looks more like a homeowner version than a commercial use machine. Even the full sized Gators are under powered IMO.
