Detailed Specs

Tuatara 1000 EFI

POWERFUL, CAPABLE UTV SIDE BY SIDE
1000 cc 12-valve water-cooled engine with 51 kW (69 hp) output. Bosch Electronic Fuel Injection and five‑speed manual transmission with selectable 2WD and 4WD modes.

SUITABLE FOR ALL CONDITIONS

The large 26″ high‑grip CST 6‑ply tyres and 310 mm ground clearance, combined with an engine intake snorkel and independent wishbone suspension, give this UTV exceptional “go anywhere” capability. It’s not just an all-terrain vehicle: it’s a true ultra-terrain vehicle (UTV).

PERFECT FOR NIGHT USE

LED headlamps, fog lights, and an amazingly powerful roof‑mounted LED light bar make the Tuatara excellent for night work.

SAFE AND PRACTICAL!

There are three independent seats, each with a four‑point seatbelt, in a walk‑through cabin design. Plus there’s a powerful waterproof radio with Bluetooth, so you can enjoy audio content while you work or play.

The Tuatara UTV 1000EFI

The Tuatara UTV 1000EFI ultra terrain vehicle (UTV) is unmatched in features and unrivalled in quality for its class. This highly functional, amazingly robust and truly versatile machine is suitable for just about any application, including farming, farm contracting, apiculture, horticulture, hunting, or for purely recreational purposes. In fact, its all-steel structure makes it probably the toughest UTV available in Queensland.

Go anywhere

The Tuatara has an impressively powerful 1000 cc, three-cylinder, 12-valve engine. Paired with a fantastic five-speed transmission, it offers enormous power at any speed on almost any type of terrain. In addition, the manual transmission provides the advantage of engine braking through every gear and eliminates the issues posed by CVT transmission drive belts, which tend to slip when wet, and often wear out prematurely, increasing maintenance costs.

The Tuatara comes with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) to handle the most challenging, most rugged conditions. The IRS allows the vehicle to keep its rear wheels stable and in constant contact with the terrain in all conditions, giving better traction, a smoother ride, and less sliding. In addition, with the high ground clearance, IRS lets you stay on the throttle through turns and when negotiating rough and undulating terrain. There are also switchable 2WD/4WD, and individually selectable front and rear differential locks, giving it true “go anywhere” capability.

The Tuatara outperforms the rest even when it’s standing still. The unique brake pedal lock enhances the handbrake, providing total retention even when parked on the steepest incline.

Get more for less

The UTV includes many features and accessories that our competitors only offer as expensive add-ons. These include the 2000 kg electric winch, roof-mounted LED lightbar, electrically operated rear tray hoist, high-grip CSV tyres, engine intake snorkel, waterproof Bluetooth radio, PVC roof with carry tray, and two deck-mounted equipment boxes. What other UTV boasts such features as standard?

No other utility vehicle in Queensland has a front cargo tray. The front cargo tray on the Tuatara has a 150 kg load capacity. Power steering keeps the handling light, even when you’ve got rolling fence posts or a sloshing spray tank up front.

Also not found on other UTVs in Queensland is the 100% steel rear cargo tray. No flimsy plastic here! The cargo tray’s drop-down sides allow you to carry wider loads easily.

All-day comfort and safety

The Tuatara protects you from Queensland’s harsh climate with an all-weather roof and windscreen. The adjustable steering column lets you set a comfortable steering position for any height and body size. The walk-through cabin allows easy entry and exit from both sides of the vehicle—essential for tasks where you’re constantly hopping in and out. It’s also a great help if you have mobility issues that make conventional cab designs uncomfortable.

The passenger cabin is a safe place to be, no matter the terrain. It’s enclosed within a robust roll-over protection system (ROPS), and all three seats are equipped with four-point seatbelts for added safety.

Tough and built to last

Given the punishment UTVs get every day, your first consideration when choosing a UTV should be robustness.

The Tuatara is the most solid UTV available in Queensland. The chassis and main cargo tray are made from high-grade steel. The ladder design of the chassis gives it exceptional structural strength. No need to worry when negotiating rocky areas, pushing through branches and tree stumps, or even bottoming out on hard soil.

To ensure your UTV workhorse is around for years, the entire vehicle undergoes a six‑step electrophoresis treatment in the factory. Electrophoresis is generally recognised as the best anti-corrosion protection for steel.

Tuatara…or chameleon?

The most amazing feature of the Tuatara is its versatility. It meets all the requirements for road use—right down to the registration plate light. It can travel up to 60 kilometres per hour. At the same time, it’s an off-road vehicle capable of negotiating almost any terrain easily. It’s strong and enormous carrying capacity, but its immensely powerful engine is quiet and economical.

The Tuatara is more functional than any other UTV on the Queensland market, yet it’s several thousand dollars less than a comparable UTV (if one even existed). And that’s not even considering the estimated $3,000 worth of accessories included as standard features.

Fact! The Tuatara is a truly stand-out Ultra Terrain Vehicle.

What Our Customers Say

Excellent5.0 Based on 7 reviews from review us onOz ManOz Man ★★★★★ We bought the electric Tuatara - what a game changer! Easy to get in and out of and very quiet. Runs for two weeks on a single charge. We charge it up on sunny days via our solar panels, so cost is minimal. Great working height of the tilt tray too. Very pleased we got the front and rear windscreens as we have a lot of Golden Ord Spiders in our olive grove and it stops them hitting your face. We are in the process of putting fake grass on the black tray matting so its not too hot for the dogs to stand in the back. Highly recommend one of these to anyone wanting to buy one for their farm. Craig is easy to work with and very helpful in explaining all the safety features of the Tuatara. Thanks Craig.Response from the ownerThanks to you both for this great review. It’s been a pleasure working with you and I look forward to hearing more on how your buggy is going.

The owner, Craig, helped me with making an educated choice by showing and let me drive the 2 models, a petrol and an electric version, both very powerful and versatile 3 seater off road machines.My petrol version was personally delivered by Craig to my farm within a week. Great customer service and I look forward getting lots of use out of it.Response from the ownerIt’s a pleasure dealing with you Onno and thanks for your review.
