Polaris 400 H.O. Offroad Vehicle User Manual

Hauling Cargo
Never exceed the weight capaci-
ties specified for your ATV on
warning labels and in the speci-
fications section of this manual.
Cargo weight should be evenly
distributed (1/3 on the front rack
and 2/3 on the rear rack) and
mounted as low as possible.
NEVER exceed 50 MPH (80
km/h) when rear cargo loads are
above 75 lbs. (34 kg) and/or
front cargo loads are above 37
lbs. (17 kg).
When operating over rough or hilly terrain, reduce speed and cargo
weight to maintain stable driving conditions.
Do not obstruct the headlight beam with cargo.
Use low forward gear when hauling or towing heavy cargo to extend
belt life.
Towing Loads
Always attach a towed load to the hitch point. Remove the hitch from
the ATV when not towing a trailer. If towing a load, reduce rear rack
cargo weight by the amount of tongue weight.
The combination of rear rack cargo weight and tongue weight must
not exceed the rear rack capacity.
The total load (operator, accessories, cargo and weight on hitch) must
not exceed the maximum weight capacity of the vehicle.
NOTICE: Using an improper hitch or exceeding
the maximum tongue weight capacity
can result in serious damage to the
vehicle and will void your ATV
warranty. Never install a hitch longer
than 4" (10 cm). Never install
automotive accessories on your
POLARIS ATV. Always install
POLARIS-approved (or equivalent)
accessories designed for ATV use.
