|Polaris Ranger 800 HD
Model Year 2010 brings more significant changes to Polaris RANGER line up with the introduction of two new utility RANGER Side-by-Sides, increased power to existing models, more redesigns, a RANGER XP with power steering and a faster top speed for RANGER RZR. All 2010 RANGERs and RANGER RZRs also come standard with a ROPS Certified Cab.
With the introduction of two new products, more power for the utility line, the redesigned RANGER CREW and 6×6, and a new top speed for RANGER RZR, the 2010 line up picks up where the 2009 line up left off, said Matt Homan, vice president and general manager of Polaris Off-Road division. We continue to innovate our RANGER line to offer the most extensive Side-by-Side offering in the industry.
In 2009, Polaris introduced the ruggedly re-engineered RANGER that was the hardest working and smoothest riding RANGER EVER built, and introduced the new RANGER HD, the ultimate heavy-duty utility vehicle with a self leveling rear suspension and power steering. This year, the company powered up the RANGER 4×4 (now called RANGER 500 H.O.) with a 500 H.O engine and added an 800 EFI engine across the rest of the line. The RANGER 4×4 gets a 13 percent power increase with the 500 H.O. engine, and the RANGER XP (now called RANGER 800 XP) receives a 15 percent power upgrade with the addition of the 800 twin EFI power plant. The 800cc engine also has been added to the RANGER 800 HD, RANGER 800 CREW and RANGER 800 6×6 solidifying the Hardest Working RANGER promise.
To complement RANGER s exclusive, Adjustable Dual A-Arm front suspension, the RANGER HD features the first-ever Self-Leveling Suspension on a utility vehicle. When carrying heavy loads, the Nivomat® shocks automatically adjust the suspension resulting in the highest loaded ground clearance of any utility vehicle. Due to a lower spring rate, the Nivomats provide a smoother ride and the ability to go long distances at 50 MPH fully-loaded, making hauling loads such as fertilizer, feed or building materials quicker and easier.
For easier steering during heavy-duty work applications, RANGER HD also features power steering with exclusive Variable Assist. RANGER HDs power steering allows for one-finger steering at low speeds and eliminates feedback at high speeds so the operator can work longer and enjoy the ride. The system is perfect for plowing as well as the new BOSS® Lift & Carry System that attaches to the front of the RANGER HD and can lift and carry up to 500 lbs.
