We caught up with Mark "Larko" Larkham to find out how his Polaris Ranger XP1000 accessories are going and learn which ones are his favourite. The cargo bed winch looks like it was the pick!

There are loads of different accessories for most side-by-sides nowadays but it seems Polaris have the best range. We caught up with Mark “Larko” Larkham, who is currently pedalling a Polaris Ranger XP 1000, to see which accessory were his favourite and there was one clear winner: the Polaris winch.

Larko has bolted on a flip-up screen, light bars, bullbar, roof, cargo carrier, doors, camo accents, flip-up work light, interior lights, seat covers, rear brush guards, tow hitch and of course a Polaris winch. But he wasn’t happy with just the front winch, he went with the cargo winch as well.

We have tested all these accessories on our Polaris Ranger 570 HD except the cargo winch so we were keen to see what he thought. It came in handy for moving big, heavy items like logs, rocks and even big game when he was out hunting. It allowed Larko to give his back a break and by using the winch he could strategically drag most items into the tipper tray. From the Shop Polaris website it will set you back $1070 and can drag up to 136kg. It comes with a wired remote, 4.5metres of synthetic rope. It mounts to the top bar of your tray.

We have been massive fans of the windscreen especially with he wiper fitted when the spray nozzle is fitted to the wiper itself. We have another product test on this wiper system coming up and with all the rain on the east coast of Australia it has copped a significant workout. So stay tuned for that one.

In the meantime, check out what accessories Larko is loving on his Polaris Ranger XP 1000 below.
