Polaris’ most versatile UTV

Today Polaris is launching its latest side-by-side utility vehicle, the Brutus. It offers a 24-horsepower diesel engine with hydrostatic transmission plus front-end power take-off (PTO).

While the announcement was just made today, we were privy to a sneak peak of the new machine. At the right is a shot of me taking the new UTV for a spin. Despite the brisk winter day in Minnesota, a full cab and heaters kept me surprisingly warm. And as you may or may not be able to tell, we were having fun blowing snow at our fellow riders. But this machine’s capabilities go far beyond the ability to throw a little snow.

The Brutus product line is an outcome of the strategic alliance formed between Polaris and Bobcat in 2009. The co-developed vehicles leverage the strengths of both companies with Polaris' expertise in utility vehicles and the powersports market, and Bobcat's experience in work vehicle technology and attachments.

All three Brutus models are now available to order through select Polaris dealers with shipment starting in April. Prices are currently unavailable.

The ability to operate several front-end attachments provides customers with versatility and a cost-effective, productive work solution. The Pro-Tach attachment system, standard on the Brutus HD and Brutus HD PTO, allows users to change from one attachment to the next quickly and easily. The front-end PTO system on the Brutus HD PTO draws power directly from the vehicle's engine. The mechanical PTO maximizes power to a line of purpose-built, out-front attachments.
