OREANDA-NEWS. August 17, 2016. Cushman, a Textron Specialized Vehicles brand, continues to show its dedication to the golfing industry with the “Growing Greens” program. For every purchase of a new Cushman Hauler® utility vehicle, \\$50 will be donated to the local Golf Course Superintendents Association (GCSAA) chapter of the purchasing course.

Textron Specialized Vehicles, which manufactures and designs certain Cushman vehicles, is a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company.

“The Cushman brand is more than delivering reliable, durable vehicles, we are committed to supporting the industry we serve, which is why we launched Growing Greens,” said Michael R. Parkhurst, Vice President, Golf for Textron Specialized Vehicles. “The Growing Greens program and GCSAA have a common goal of advancing the superintendent profession and growing the game of golf.”

The new Hauler lineup gives superintendents the opportunity to customize vehicles for their courses needs. Extensive customer research and feedback led the engineers behind Cushman to design a high-performing, customizable golf utility vehicle with a large bed, practical dash and a wide array of accessories to enhance the functionality of the vehicle.

The new Hauler design and features include:

  • A standard rear hitch receiver to tow whatever the day demands;
  • Premium turf tires which provide traction without damaging the greens;
  • Optional power dump bed for heavy lifting;
  • Versatile glove box with removable shelf to make room for larger items;
  • Optional 12V or USB outlets, to ensure tablets and smartphones don’t lose power.

Through its Cushman brand, Textron Specialized Vehicles is a GCSAA Silver Partner of GCSAA, and is proud to further support golf course superintendents with the launch of Growing Greens.

Superintendents can schedule a demonstration of the new Hauler at HaulerDemo.com. For more information on participating in the Growing Greens program, superintendents can contact their Cushman sales representative.
