RZR Hauling and Towing Guide

Driving with extra passengers or cargo – and therefore an increased payload – requires extra precautions to be taken when operating your Polaris RZR. Payload includes all passengers, accessories and cargo in the vehicle. Always be sure that the total weight of passengers, accessories and cargo does not exceed the stated weight capacity. 

Hauling Cargo Guidelines
Overloading the vehicle or carrying cargo improperly can alter vehicle handling and may cause loss of control or brake instability. NEVER carry fuel or other flammable liquids on this vehicle. Failure to follow this instruction could lead to serious burn injuries or death.

Always follow these precautions when hauling cargo:

  • Never exceed the maximum weight capacity of the vehicle. When determining the weight you are adding to the vehicle, include the weight of the operator, passengers, accessories and loads in the rack or box. The combined weight of these items must not exceed the maximum weight capacity.
  • Do not travel faster than the recommended speeds. Vehicle should never exceed 10 MPH (16 km/h) while cornering or while ascending or descending a hill.
  • Avoid terrain or situations that may require backing downhill.
  • Reduce speed and allow greater distances for braking when hauling cargo. 
  • Always load the cargo box with the load as far forward and as low as possible.
  • When operating over rough or hilly terrain, reduce speed and cargo to maintain stable driving conditions.
  • Always operate the vehicle with extreme care when hauling cargo. Slow down and drive in the lowest gear available.
  • A passenger must always be seated in a passenger seat with seat belt secured. Carrying a passenger in the cargo box could result in a fall from the vehicle or contact with moving components. Never allow a passenger to ride in the cargo box. 
  • Secure all loads before operating. Unsecured loads can create unstable operating conditions, which could result in loss of control of the vehicle.
  • Operate only with stable and safely-arranged loads. When handling off-centered loads that cannot be centered, securely fasten the load and operate with extra caution.
  • Use extreme caution when operating with loads that extend over the rack sides. Stability and maneuverability may be adversely affected, causing a rollover.
  • Heavy loads can cause braking and control problems. Use extreme caution when applying brakes with a loaded vehicle. Avoid terrain or situations that may require backing downhill.
  • Use extreme caution when operating with loads that extend over the rack sides. Stability and maneuverability may be adversely affected, causing a rollover.
  • Always operate in the lowest gear available to extend belt life. 
  • Verify correct tire pressure before hauling or towing.

When towing a disabled RZR vehicle, place the disabled vehicle's transmission in neutral. Do not operate the vehicle faster than 10 MPH (16 km/h) when towing. 

Towing Your RZR
Towing your RZR is not recommended. Always transport the vehicle on a trailer or flatbed with all four wheels off the ground. See the Transporting the Vehicle section of your Owner’s Manual for details. 

If towing a disabled vehicle is unavoidable, place the disabled vehicle’s transmission in neutral. Tow the shortest distance possible. Do not operate faster than 10 mph (16 km/h).
