OctNewsPolarisThere’s a new Polaris on the market. The new Ranger CREW diesel shares the same 904cc, three-cylinder Yanmar diesel engine as the Ranger Diesel, and as before it has the ability to carry six adults. Rubber-mounted to transfer minimal vibration to the operator, this engine provides the necessary low-speed torque. The fully sealed, fixed centre distance clutch drivetrain keeps water out of the clutches allowing the Polaris to work perfectly in the dirty stuff. The Ranger CREW has a 55 amp alternator that gives the operator the ability to run many hard working, higher electrical load accessories, such as ploughs, extra lights, cab heaters and fans at the same time.

The Polaris boasts a one-ton towing capability and comes standard with a two-inch hitch to tow accessories. Its 1000lb/454.5 kg capacity rear dump box has gas-assist dumping operation. Its long wheelbase combined with fully-adjustable suspension creates a smooth ride, even when fully-loaded.

The vehicle’s suspension is the only four-corner adjustable suspension system that features Dual A-Arms with exclusive top-mounting-point adjustability. For recreational riding, the user can adjust to a softer setting or adjust stiffer for heavy-duty work. With impressive suspension travel of 9.6in/24.4cm up front, 9in/22.9cm in the rear and a ground clearance of 11.5in/29.2cm, the Ranger can cope with most terrains. The model also features On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive with VersaTrac that automatically engages all four wheels when more forward traction is needed and reverting back to two-wheel drive when you don’t. When in two-wheel drive, the VersaTrac Turf Mode switch unlocks the rear differential for easier, tighter turns.
