To assist farmers to step off their old ATV and behind the wheel of a new Polaris Ranger or Polaris ACE, Polaris is offering the $2000 minimum trade in on all makes and models of ATVs, providing the ATV is over 225cc and in reasonable running order.
According to Polaris this offer will also make the move from ATVs to side x sides more affordable for farmers and provide an engineered ROPS alternative as opposed to the fitment of contentious and unproven crush protection devices to ATVs – as now required by WorkSafe Victoria.
Victorian and New South Wales farmers may also have financial support available to move from ATVs to a Polaris Ranger, with a rebate proposed for a range initiatives including moving from ATVs to side x side vehicles.
Polaris currently offers 23 models with ROPS and models offer features such as three-point seat-belts with an interlock device that limits speed when the seat belt is unsecured, SpeedKey speed limiting device, an engine braking system with 4-wheel descent control and side nets.
Seating configurations start with a single-seat ACE rated to carry 261kg and has a towing capacity 680kg. The ACE provides a compact and narrow footprint like an ATV, for extraordinary access and maneuverability but it also features ROPS and car like controls.
The Ranger series of side x side utility vehicles provides a selection of models with seating from 2 to 6 seats in petrol, diesel and electric, 2 wheel-drive and All-Wheel-Drive plus un-locking rear diffs for turf friendly performance.
The $2,000 minimum trade-in applies to any brand of ATV larger than 225cc and excludes Youth models. The trade-in must be in running/riding order. This offer remains in place until the end of September 2016.
