The Polaris Big Boss line has been around since way back when. It actually began with a 250cc two stroke engine powering the 6x6 workhorse. How times have changed!
For 2013 the "Boss" comes with an 800cc fuel injected, liquid cooled, four stroke twin engine with electric start. So now you can work from the high altitude mountains to the sea level beaches knowing you're getting the maximum power possible. Neither will you have to worry about cold weather starting - EFI knows best!
The PVT transmission (Polaris' name for their CVT) is back providing on demand 6-wheel drive. Now it's teamed with the EBS (engine braking system) and the disc brakes to give you Active Descent Control.
That's a corporate acronym way of saying you don't have to ride the brakes going down hills with a full load. And speaking of ride - it will be a smooth one with the all wheel independent suspension.
But let's be honest here - most folks won't buy the Polaris Big Boss for the Cadillac ride. No, most Big Bosses will spend their lives working. Since that's exactly what they were designed for, that's not a bad thing.
I won't bore you with details about the front cargo box (bigger than any other ATV's), the 1,500 lb towing capacity, or the rear dumping cargo box that will carry 800 lbs. Instead, we'll give you some quotes from some actual owner interviews. Because those are the only ones that really matter.
I couldn't say it any better myself. The only common complaint was a feeling of some top heaviness and difficulty making sharp turns. But hey - it's a 6x6 utility ATV - kinda goes with the territory.
Even though the Polaris Big Boss has been around several years, the majority of owners still give it top ratings. And that's what makes it a real "Boss" in my book.
