This year, the new Polaris Sportsman 700 Twin might just prove to be the best hired help a farmer can find. For working on the back forty, or moving equipment around the homestead, the Sportsman 700 Twin is the most powerful, smoothest riding ATV for any job.

Polaris designed its latest automatic transmission all-terrain vehicle (ATV) with farmers and ranchers in mind. The most powerful four-wheeler on the market, the Sportsman 700 Twin was named ATV Magazine's ATV of the Year for 2002. It is capable of performing the toughest work for an extended period of time. For fence work, assorted fieldwork, transporting equipment or just quickly and efficiently getting from here to there, the Sportsman 700 Twin is the best all-terrain vehicle on the market.

With 20 percent more horsepower than the Sportsman 500 H.O., and an industry-leading towing capacity of 1,500 pounds, the Sportsman 700 Twin can handle most any farm chore. Its 683cc liquid-cooled, four-valve, four-stroke engine is the biggest power plant ever lowered in an ATV, making it a powerful tool for any number of tasks — from hauling feed to clearing brush, surveying fields to moving hay.

Amazingly, this Sportsman's engine power and strength are not its only impressive features. Long travel suspension, high ground clearance and a tight, 76 inch turning radius are ideal features for fieldwork and getting over rough terrain. Each attribute combines to make the Sportsman 700 Twin the smoothest riding 4×4 on the market.

Every farmer knows Mother Nature can make or break a day. Fortunately, the Sportsman 700 Twin has the ability to deal with a variety of weather conditions and seasons.

With exclusive On-Demand true four-wheel drive and the industry's leading and most proven independent rear suspension, this quad keeps all four wheels on the ground and engaged for maximum traction through any forecast. And with the world's best-selling proven Polaris Variable Transmission (PVT), including a lifetime limited belt warranty, the Sportsman 700 Twin is backed by a history of Sportsman durability, quality production and innovation.

The Sportsman 700 Twin runs on tough, durable 25-inch Polaris-exclusive Goodyear Rawhide tires with deep lugs and thick sidewalls for outstanding traction on any terrain. It also comes standard with a speedometer, odometer, hourometer, high- and low-beam headlights, temperature lights, front and rear racks, electric start, and new in-line shifting for high- and low-gears, reverse and park.

An extensive line of Pure Polaris accessories is another reason the Sportsman 700 Twin makes an ideal farming companion. Sprayers, disc attachments, diggers, levelers, cultivators and GPS units can save valuable time and make a long day in the field a little easier.

Beyond the farm, the 700 Twin has countless uses around the yard. Attachable mowers make cutting the grass a breeze, and a variety of snow blades make easy work of clearing out a driveway. Polaris also offers wagons and dump carts for carrying mulch or firewood and seeders and spreaders to plant grass or a garden. For pure recreation, the 700 Twin can take trail riders deep into the woods, launch a boat on the lake, or tow an ice fishing house for the angler who can't wait until summer.

“There isn't much the Sportsman 700 Twin can't do,” said Bennett Morgan, General Manager, Polaris ATV Division. “We are excited about our newest ATV, but we're even more excited about how it can make work easier for everyone in the agriculture industry. Polaris products have a history of catering to hard-working people, and the Sportsman 700 Twin is no exception. It truly represents the next generation of ATVs”
