These purpose-built offerings provide users with versatility while completing work tasks, regardless of conditions.

“Our commercial customers want a vehicle that helps them do their jobs as productively and effortlessly as possible, and these new offerings provide additional solutions,” said Tate Johnson, the company’s director of work vehicles.

“The updated HDPTO provides users with the flexibility to configure the cab enclosure to the job, while the HDPTO Deluxe offers a dramatically improved in-cab experience. Additionally, the all-new spreader expands the possible work applications of the utility vehicle beyond the attachments already offered.”

Both models also include a new Tier 4 compliant, 24-horsepower Kohler diesel engine. The three-cylinder, overhead cam design and indirect injection delivers smooth power, reduced combustion and minimal noise and vibration. Biodiesel fuels of up to B20 are approved for use with the engine.

Other 2015 enhancements include:

  • Cab: The HDPTO allows users to configure the frame based on needs with optional accessories, while the HDPTO Deluxe offers maximum comfort with a fully-enclosed cab, complete with a noise seal-off kit, windshield wiper assembly, heat, defrost and air conditioning.
  • Alternator: A 110-amp alternator provides power to fit all types of electrical needs.
  • Cargo box frame: A strengthened cargo box frame is designed to work seamlessly with the new utility spreader attachment.

The cargo box utility spreader is designed for application of dry, free-flowing granular materials such as sand and salt. The spreader holds up to 7.8 cubic feet struck or 10.6 cubic feet heaped, while dash-mounted controls enable the driver to make application adjustments directly from the cab. The two new utility vehicle models are compatible with the spreader, as well as the seven existing attachments.

The new offerings will be available spring 2015. To learn more about the 2015 lineup, visit the Polaris website.  end mark
