Re: Polaris Ranger 4x4 vs Ranger 6x6
If you intend to go down the hill with any load at all or when it is slick, think seriously about something other than a Polaris 4X4. They have an automatic four wheel drive that will not lock up going down hill, and there is no way to lock the thing. So the rear end will slide around and you will swap ends on slick stuff. The breaks do not even compensate, as the hand brake locks both ends and you just swing sideways and roll.
The 6X6 does the same thing, but at least it has the rear 4 wheels locked so it only pile drives the front end going down hill when it is wet or slick.
