weight of these items must not exceed the maximum weight capacity... Always load the cargo box with the load as far forward and as low as possible... When operating over rough or hilly terrain, reduce speed and cargo to maintain

Page 97

descending a hill... Carrying a passenger in the cargo box could result in a fall from the vehicle or contact with moving components... Never allow a passenger to ride in the cargo box... A passenger must always be seated in a passenger seat with seat belt

Page 98

TOWING A RZR Towing this vehicle is not recommended... Always transport the vehicle on a trailer or flatbed with all four wheels off the ground... See the Transporting the Vehicle section for details...

Page 99

9... Always be sure that at least five (5) full turns of winch cable are wrapped around the winch drum at all times... The friction provided by this wrapped cable allows the drum to pull on the winch cable and move the load...

Page 100

15... The winch motor may become hot during winch use... If you winch for more than 45 seconds, or if the winch stalls during operation, stop winching and permit the winch to cool down for 10 minutes before using it again...

Page 101

Take your time to think through the winching you are about to do... Proceed slowly and deliberately... Never hurry or rush during winching... Always pay attention to your surroundings... You may need to change your winching strategy if it is not working... Always remember that your winch is very powerful... There are simply some situations that you and your winch will not be able to deal with... Do not be afraid to ask others to help when this happens...

Page 102

WARNING Never use a recovery strap when winching due to the excessive energy that can be released if the winch cable breaks... This can result in SEVERE INJURY

Page 103

a... In order to absorb energy that could be released by a winch cable failure, always place a damper on the winch cable... A damper can be heavy jacket, tarp, or other soft, dense object... A damper can absorb much of the energy released if a winch cable breaks when winching... Even a tree limb can help as a damper if no other items are available to you...

Page 104

11... The ONLY time a winch-equipped vehicle should be moving when using the winch is when that vehicle itself is stuck... The winch equipped vehicle should NEVER be in motion to shock load the winch cable in an attempt to move a second stuck vehicle... See the Shock Loading section on page 105... For your safety, always follow these guidelines when winching a vehicle free:

Page 105

14... The winch motor may become hot during winch use... If you winch for more than 45 seconds, or if the winch stalls during operation, stop winching and permit the winch to cool down for 10 minutes before using it again...

Page 106

A winch cable made of synthetic rope should be inspected for signs of fraying... Replace the cable if fraying is observed (shown below)... Promptly discontinue use of a winch cable in this condition... Also replace the winch cable if there are fused or melted fibers... Such an area of the synthetic rope will be stiff and appear smooth or glazed... Promptly discontinue use of a winch cable in this condition...

Page 107

1... Never attempt to jerk a load with the winch... For example, never take up slack in the winch cable by moving the winching vehicle in an attempt to move an object... This is a dangerous practice... It generates high winch cable loads that may exceed the strength of the cable... Even a slowly moving vehicle can create large shock loads in a winch cable...

Page 108

6... Never replace a synthetic-rope winch cable with a consumer-grade polymer rope such as can be purchased in a hardware store... Although they may look similar, they are NOTalike... A polymer rope not designed for winch use will stretch and store excessive energy when winching...

Page 109

Non-ionizing Radiation: This vehicle emits some electromagnetic energy... People with active or non-active implantable medical devices (such as heart monitoring or controlling devices) should review the limitations of their device and the applicable electromagnetic standards and directives that apply to this vehicle...

Page 111

Always position the vehicle on a firm, level surface before elevating... Only use an appropriate sized lift or jack... Refrain from positioning a jack or jack stand under any components other than the vehicle frame...

Page 112

Pay special attention to the oil level... A rise in oil level during cold weather can indicate contaminants collecting in the oil sump or crankcase... Change oil immediately if the oil level begins to rise... Monitor the oil level, and if it continues to rise, discontinue use and determine the cause or see your authorized dealer...
