Ariens Company announced March 13 that it acquired the Treker line of utility vehicles (UTV), attachments and accessories from Land Pride, division of Great Plains Mfg. Inc. Ariens will continue to sell the UTV line through Land Pride retailers and select power equipment retailers under the Gravely brand name.


 “The addition of Treker utility vehicles will expand our product offering for the core rural lifestyle customer we reach through Gravely retailers,” said Dan Ariens, president, Ariens Company. “We really see the utility vehicle positioned as a utilitarian material-handling tool for this segment.”


The Treker line includes a two- or four-wheel-drive UTV that features a 30-mph ground speed, electric bed lift and 1,200-pound payload. Multiple attachments and accessories are available for each model, enabling buyers to customize the vehicles for their specific use.


The UTV will also be sold through Gravely Turf retailers who serve the sports field management segment, according to Ariens.
