Utility equipment: Polaris Industries Inc. has engineered a Polaris® RANGER CREW® Diesel side-by-side utility vehicle with an integrated multi-power system, a first for vehicles in this category. A flip of a switch allows operators to power hydraulic, pneumatic, electric and welding equipment directly from the vehicle’s diesel engine through the integrated HIPPO Multipower System from the Mobile Hydraulic Equipment Company.

The Polaris RANGER with HIPPO MPS represents a continued expansion into non-traditional markets for Polaris to serve its increasing base of work customers. Operators in the rail, municipal, construction, oil and gas, rental, utilities and mining industries as well as the military already consider the proven HIPPO MPS indispensable and this all-in-one solution increases their flexibility and mobility even more. This is the first time a Polaris vehicle’s engine has been engineered to power a robust multi-power system like the HIPPO.

“The versatility provided by integrating the HIPPO MPS with the Polaris RANGER is extremely valuable for transporting personnel, heavy duty tools and a four-in-one power source to hard-to-reach job sites,” said Dave Longren, vice president of Polaris’ Off-Road Vehicles division. “When getting on-site means going off-road, our customers trust us to get them there. They also trust in the capability of HIPPO power equipment and combining the two meets a vital need for our customers.”

A properly maintained vehicle will simply need to be fueled up and it is ready to go since all the equipment is powered from the RANGER’s 24 horsepower diesel engine. This feature greatly reduces the maintenance time associated with four separate systems. The integrated HIPPO 1041CP Multipower System has one hydraulic tool circuit, two quick disconnect pneumatic fittings, two 120 volt electric outlets at 20 amps and one welding console with quick disconnects.

The RANGER is the perfect vehicle to partner with the HIPPO MPS. Features such as seating for three, On-Demand True All-wheel drive to tackle tough terrain, 500 pound cargo box capacity and one ton of towing capacity, ensure a highly-capable vehicle able to tackle the toughest of tasks.

“The Polaris RANGER with HIPPO MPS allows you to go anywhere and do anything ­ providing robust power to remote locations; quickly, easily and reliably,” said Chris Klope, chief operating officer, Mobile Hydraulics Equipment Company. “No one does off-road utility vehicles better than Polaris and pairing our HIPPO Multipower unit with this vehicle delivers a unique tool, simplifying work for the user. All-terrain mobility with hydraulic, electric, welding and pneumatic power at the touch of a button ­ it just doesn¹t get any easier than that.”

The RANGER with HIPPO MPS is currently available for sale through authorized dealers, defense channels and Polaris Fleet Sales. With Polaris Fleet Sales, managers receive centralized purchasing and benefits including a dedicated account manager, special pricing structure and extended warranties to fit the unique needs of each fleet.
