Nick Skelton CBE, the equestrian and former showjumper, has taken delivery of two Corvus Terrain DX4 PRO EPS 4x4s in a green livery.
Mr Skelton, who won an Olympic gold medal as part of a team in 2012, and an individual gold medal in 2016, aged 58, bought the vehicles for his Alcester farm. The property is the home of Team Skelton, which comprises his son’s Dan Skelton Racing team.
“We have had numerous 4×4 utility vehicles,” said Mr Skelton. “And when they came up for review, we tried a number of UTVs. We had not heard of Corvus, so we had one on test loan at the suggestion of Murray Boss at Ace ATV, who has been our dealer for many years.
“Lots of owners come to the yards and we use the 4x4s to ferry them up and down the gallops as well as pulling chain harrows. They are good for all sorts of uses. We like the feeling of them, they are bigger than the others we considered and feel more robust.”
The Terrain is powered by a normally aspirated, inline 3-cylinder 993cc Yanmar Diesel engine, which gives excellent fuel efficiency and range. Models are Stage V emission compliant, as a homologated diesel tractor to T1b tractor regulation and have a top speed of 40mph/65kp/h.
Corvus is building the Terrain for work primarily in agriculture, livestock, forestry, turf care and construction, but they are highly adaptable vehicles ready for any demanding off-road workout.
