It had better be engineered well enough to handle a lot more than my tent trailer. I have been hauling that trailer around camping grounds, with my Honda Rubicon for a couple of years now, with no problems. Gotta test the limits, at some time.:drive1:
Polaris has a reputation for rejecting warranty claims for stupid reasons.
Some people say to remove any aftermarket mods before you take your machine in for warranty service.
Mostly, I think it has more to do with clutch kits, airbox kits, turbo kits, and the like. But there is the odd horror story, always.
The ACE is supposed to have a towing capacity of 1500 lbs. Going with the standard towing rules, that equates to a tongue weight of roughly 150 lbs.
What is the weight of your trailer? And the tongue weight?
Ok, here are some specs.
Dry Trailer Weight: 1,200 lbs. (544 kg.)
GVWR: 2995 lbs. (1360 kg.)
Payload: 1795 lbs. (814 kg.)
Tongue Weight: 198 lbs. (actual)
Like I said, I don't plan to tow anything like that trailer with the Ace, I just had to check it out once. The Honda is much better suited for that, because of the swing axle. Now, you don't have to subject yours to that abuse, since I have done it, for you:yahoo:
I don't intend to haul any trailers with my ACE, though a garden trailer wouldn't be out of the question if I had a bigger property.
But it's good to know I could move one around with the ACE if I needed to.
If on level ground, I may use mine to shuttle my box trailer and my tilt car hauling trailers. But I doubt I'd do much heavy towing with it. It's too much fun to ride otherwise. Here's what I do around the property with it most of the time...
