The BRUTUS product line share a resemblance with the Ranger UTVs and use some of the same technology. The three models – BRUTUS, BRUTUS HD and BRUTUS HD PTO enable the user to complete tasks such as plowing, mowing and scooping from the comfort of a UTV.
A 24-horsepower diesel engine powers this latest Polaris with a hydrostatic transmission. A unique and innovative tread pedal allows travel in forward and reverse without shifting the transmission. Polaris’ On-Demand All-Wheel Drive, allows the BRUTUS to be used in just about any terrain.
A multi-link coil over De Dion rear suspension supports a 1,250-pound cargo capacity and minimizes sag when fully loaded. This provides class-leading ground clearance while offering up six inches of wheel travel. The BRUTUS also boasts a best-in-class towing capacity of 2,000 pounds.
The big news however is that the BRUTUS’ ability to operate several front-end attachments. The Pro-Tach attachment system, which is standard on the BRUTUS HD and BRUTUS HD PTO, lets the user switch from one work attachment to another quickly and easily. The front-end PTO system is powered directly from the diesel engine and transmits the power to a line of purpose-built, out-front attachments. Three PTO-power attachments are available: an angle broom, a finishing mover and a snow blower. Additionally three hydraulic units include a snowblade, pallet forks and a materials bucket.
Ready for any weather condition, the BRUTUS HD PTO comes standard with a fully enclosed cab that includes heat, defrost and air-conditioning.
