I've had my UTV for a few years it's mostly used a tool but also as a toy to just get out sightseeing in the woods and pastures.
These UTV's and ATV's are handy vehicles to get into a lot of places.
I just did a modification that really makes mine much nicer in the winter,
I had added a soft cab which stops a bit of the wind and slows down the rest which made it more comfortable in colder weather
but it was still cold.
I added a heater the other day what a difference that makes, the other day I was up in the woods with my nephew as he was doing some logging just to be around in the off chance of something going wrong. It was down in the low 20's outside but around 50 inside the soft cab.
I put in a chinese diesel fired air heater just a bit over $100. I have ordered some longer heat ducts now that I know it will work. It worked while parked and when driving in the woods and on the road while going back to my house at 35 mph.

My UTV, she is a large one will seat 3 across easily and 800cc twin for power.

We have a couple of older mules on the farm, good work vehicles but slow when we road between farms or even different field and very limited suspension.
This has a lot of suspension and rides much better in rough fields and has good road speed. I've had it up to 45 mph and it has more, I normally run 30-35 on the roads.
But with the good suspension I can out run a cantankerous cow and with the steel body I have actually crowded a couple around.
Mine has DOT rated UTV tires when I have to change them out I may go for a more traction oriented tire. But she gets around good as it is.
It has a choice of 2 wd or 4 wd and then you can select front or rear diff locks or both.
Yes it is a much cheaper version of the Webasto heaters, they even make a water heater version that is tempting for tractor preheating.

Could be one of several different issues;
a control power fuse,
a relay,
glow plug controller.
It's unusual for all the glow plugs to fail at one time.
