Polaris Ranger Power at Deelkraal Wildlife Reserve

Deelkraal Wildlife Reserve, a stunning Waterberg home to a large and diverse population of wildlife, including Buffalo and the rare Sable, Roan and Tsessebe antelopes, has acquired Polaris Ranger utility side X side vehicles for various operations on the farm.

The new vehicles are a Polaris Ranger 570 Crew and a Ranger 900 and join the fleet of other Smith Power Equipment (SPE)-distributed vehicles including: a Linhai 260 XL, a Polaris Sportsman 800 EFI and a Polaris Sportsman 300.

Rachel Hughes, Deelkraal assistant GM, says that the team is very satisfied with the performance of the Polaris machines. “They are powerful, reliable and hard-working. Also, even over the most difficult terrain, they provide a smooth and secure ride,” she says.

Hughes adds that the service they get from Viv at Five Nine Racing and Mark at SPE has been outstanding. “They’re always ready to go the extra mile in service and support and their knowledge of the machines and how they operate in our environment is invaluable.

The environment is rugged and the Polaris machines are used to take guests on game drives, hunting, and for general chores around this ecologically diverse 2000 hectare reserve.

The Polaris RANGER ProStar® engines are purpose built, tuned and designed alongside the vehicle – resulting in an optimal balance of smooth, reliable power. Both the ProStar® 570 (44 HP) and 900 (68 HP) engines were developed with the ultimate combination of high power density, excellent fuel efficiency and ease of maintenance.

The new and unique Polaris engine management system (EMS) delivers optimal torque and horsepower, plus smooth throttle at all speeds and in reverse. The EMS, paired with the ProStar® engine and clutching advantage, enhance fuel economy.

Another important feature is that with the Polaris true AWD advantage, all four wheels engage automatically when the vehicle needs more forward traction and reverts back to 2WD when it does not require this.
