That's what I am looking at, just had a Polaris offered for under £5k and was tempted.We had a top end Polaris on trial for a bit. The dealer just gave it to me for a month or so in the hope I’d buy one.
It was the diesel version and came in at a tasty 14 grand.
Didn’t even have doors. Windscreen wipers are an optional extra. The thing was so loud at full tilt you needed ear defenders.
Certainly something I’d use if I owned one, but for the money, even secondhand, I think there are much better solutions to the problem.
A few years later one of our farm managers did end up buying one, but it was the much cheaper petrol version.
Again, didn’t really bring a massive amount to the party. We only used it when the weather was absolutely honking. The quad is easier all round, easier to get on and off to open gates etc.
In all seriousness if I had 5k to spend on a farm wagon, I’d get an older Suzuki Jimny and stick some serious mud tyres on it. The footprint is about the same as the diesel Polaris we had and you can drive it to the shops if required. Also has a heater, windows and all the other mod cons I’d expect for that sort of cash.
You can even get a tipper back for them.
