    Kohler KDW1003 Engine

    Both the 2015 Polaris Ranger Diesel and Ranger Crew Diesel Side-by-Sides are being powered by Kohler Engines’ 1028cc KDW1103.

    “We’re excited to partner with Polaris on the rollout of their new diesel utility vehicles,” says Jeff Wilke, product manager for Kohler Engines. “Our KDW1003 is ideally suited for this type of application due to its overhead cam that was designed with automotive characteristics, as well as an advanced fuel-injection system that delivers smooth, quiet power and enhanced fuel efficiency of a diesel engine. Plus, we’re able to provide a high output 110 amp alternator to drive more accessories, which will be a key feature for users.”

          Yamaha Viking HMF Swamp Exhaust

          HMF is now offering its Swamp slip-on exhaust for the Yamaha Viking, offering a bit more performance from Yamaha’s Utility Side-by-Side.

          Discuss this at our Yamaha Viking Forum.

          In addition to any performance boost, HMF says the Swamp slip-on ($399.95) sheds two to three pounds compared to the stock system. Sound levels are claimed to be just one or to decibels higher than the stock unit with a deeper tone. However, for those looking for a bit more bark (and power), HMF’s Swamp XL (Extra Loud) is also available for $369.95.
