We had heard that a UTV type machine does better in the snow than just an ATV. So we were excited to try it out in one of our first snow storms of the season. As soon as the weather forecasted snow we were loaded, ready to go.
It had snowed over night in the mountains. A foot of fresh powder was on the ground. My wife and I headed out to one of our communication towers that we maintain. Our truck started spinning out, a good sign that it was time to unload the Rzr. The Rzr has great traction and offered a safe ride for the 5 mile journey. We had great control and traction. We had great stability in the snow and it easily carried our tools and supplies. I love the tool box from Polaris, it just snaps in and out with ease. We made it a wonderful winter day, and even though it was work, it really wasn’t.
Now it is time to think about a cab and a heater to make this wonderful machine a year round work horse. We will check those out in an upcoming article.
