VIDEO | POLARIS RANGER TOWS 1 TONNE WATERING TRUCK
We use our Polaris Ranger XP1000 for pretty much everything on the farm and recently we have been using it to wean cattle. Here's how it goes.
It’s been a long time since we’ve bothered to jump in the work ute except for when we’re fencing. That’s because towing with the Polaris Ranger XP1000 is just easier. We’ve had no mechanical dramas and always try to go easy on the gear shifter and belt by using low gear.
When we’re reversing or turning tight corners while towing with the Polaris Ranger XP1000, we try not to use the On-Demand All-Wheel-Drive, instead we use the Versatrac mode so as to not put too much pressure on the other running gear. It also crabs less and doesn’t tear up the ground as much.
The power steering feels just as light as always and the we hardly noticed the rear end sag at all. In fact we could have loaded the cargo tub as well with half a tonne of wood.
Now we know that between the trailer and watering tub we’re over the 1133kg tow rating so we can’t recommend you do that but between you, me and the fly on the wall, it will be fine. Just don’t tell Polaris or run it in high gear as fast as you can through the paddock.
Anyway, if you don’t believe us, check out our video here:
