Importing Farm Machinery For Over 15 Years
If you’re looking to buy a UTV vehicle (See our ELECTRIC ATV or PETROL ATV), the team at Tuatara have the expert knowledge to give you professional advice. Geoff Hill has been importing agricultural and construction machinery from China for over 15 years. Qingmei Pang has an engineering background, as well as qualifications in international business.
In 2017, they founded Tuatara Machinery Limited, trading as Tuatara ATV, to produce an ATV specifically for New Zealanders: the Tuatara.
Why “Tuatara”? The iconic tuatara is an ancient lizard species found only in New Zealand. Each tuatara can live for more than 100 years, and its rugged appearance is strangely appealing. What better image could there be for New Zealand’s own ATV?
Geoff and Qingmei have designed the Tuatara ATV from the ground up to handle New Zealand conditions. It’s manufactured in China to their exacting specifications. The Tuatara is designed with strength in mind. It’s got plenty of power and carrying capacity, and a go-anywhere capability. Best of all, it’s made of tough, enduring steel, with plastic banished to the passenger compartment shrouding.
The Tuatara continues to evolve in response to customer feedback. Tuatara ATV is determined to make the Tuatara the offroad side-by-side UTV vehicle of choice for farmers, hunters, contractors and recreational users. There is no need for a special license and it can be driven on a class 1 or class 6 license.
The Tuatara UTV Vehicle
The TUATARA ATV- Ultra Terrain Vehicle (UTV) is unmatched and unrivalled in features and quality in its class. This is a truly versatile machine, suitable for just about any application, including farming, farm contracting, apiculture, horticulture, hunting, or purely recreational purposes. In fact, the TUATARA ATV’s all-steel structure makes it probably the toughest ATV/UTV available in New Zealand and has numerous add-ons to make the Tuatara even more versatile.
We also export to all countries, including the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Europe, South America and many more countries.
