Versatile utility vehicle simplifies soil preparation (with related video)
Several new enhancements and attachments are available on 2016 BRUTUS models from Polaris Industries. The side-by-side vehicle enables the operator to lift, grab, grade, scoop, sweep, blow, mow, plow and plane. One machine can do the job of several typical work vehicles, with less effort, according to the manufacturer.
The BRUTUS landplane simplifies grading, leveling and aerating soil. The joystick-controlled attachment breaks up and smooths out rugged terrain, then goes a step further with its back drag to level out the soil. An optional scarifier kit helps break up hard soil, while a screen kit allows the operator to carry and sift material. When the vehicle is not being used it for grading, the landplane doubles as a sod peeler or aerator, or it can be used to transport materials around the worksite.
The unit has an ergonomic joystick (photo at left) with an integrated toggle that provides good control. Raise, lower, tilt and move power takeoff (PTO) attachments without taking your hand off the joystick. The new joystick is standard on MY16 and the upgrade kit is compatible with all earlier model BRUTUS HDPTO vehicles.
Polaris designs, engineers, manufactures and markets off-road vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and the Polaris RANGER and RZR side-by-side vehicles, snowmobiles, motorcycles and on-road electric/hybrid powered vehicles.
