I just stopped for a look at the new Rangers while at West Plains Missouri. The salesman pointed out a great deal on a new Full Size 570.
Anyway I was back yesterday, and to my surprise we ended up doing a trade.

Model: 2015 Full Size Ranger 570 XP in Green
Add Ons: Full Glass Front and Rear Windshield's, and Plastic Roof
Added the Optional Extended 48 Month Warranty for $8 a month. Total Warranty 54 Months.

Now all I need are some doors that are not $1,000 a pair.

I went over the 570 pretty well. My observations:
The motor is set back to the rear further than my old 700, now under the bed where everything is more accessable.
Oil Filter is on the front Passenger side of the motor, and easy to get to.
Grease Zerts on suspension parts.
Easy to change Air Filter.
Radiator overflow out in plain sight under the hood.
It has 3 storage boxes under the seats. CORRECTION: 2 Storage Boxs, the center area has the computer, and some other electrical stuff in it.
The seat bottoms are a split 60/40 design.
The Park Position on the gear shift is a big improvement over my old Park Brake with a cable that keeps stretching, and runs out of adjustment over time.
The Maunal Steering is much easier to turn than my old 700XP.
The Lock & Ride Cab is a very good idea. My old 2009 700XP was a One Year Roll Cage design. That sucked for add on cab parts. Now they need to quit changing things, and leave the design alone so parts are interchangable over several year models.
The Power put out by the 570 seems to be all I need.
I have seat covers on order from Greene Mountain Outdoors. Hope I like them when the arrive.

I have a Reactive Steel Handgun Match Saturday (tomorrow). I will install my old bed matt, and head to the Club with the 570 to try it out moving steel targets shortly.

Now to use it a little and I will report back.

I found a new feature that was not on my old machine.
Seat Belt Interlock.
I only road it slow when doing a test drive Wednesday. I had a chance to go faster yesterday. At around 10mph it quit gaining speed. Put on the glasses to see what the RED Light was on the dash. SEATBELT. I wonder?? Put the seat belt on, and away I went.
I will need to look into bypassing that pretty quick.
Also the net across the doors will have to go.

I am in and out of my machine opening gates, etc all the time. The seat belt and net across the doors will get old pretty quick.

More to come.

Yes sir the 15s are limited in speed when the seatbelt is undone. My 570 Crew midsize is the same way. There are several home made solutions but DragonFire Racing part number 14-2030 is a bypass for that. The plug is right under your seat directly off the female side of your seatbelt. I rode with my belt dummy buckled in for a few weeks but just got that plug in the mail yesterday and it's exactly what it should be and I didn't bend or modify any of the stock system.

Thanks for the Link.
I have one on order.
The price of $16.99 was not terrible. However Shipping left some to be desired at $12.29 for the cheapest delivery method.
Total $29.28

Does anyone know what the top speed on the 570 full size yet, non crew? Thinking of trading in my 800 midsize.

I have a couple more accessories for the Green 570.
Item One: A 20 Quart K2 Cooler in Green
Item Two: I just ordered a couple Milk Crates in Green from Duluth Trading. ( Item # 85055 $14.50 Regular Price) They have a 20% off Sale with Free Shipping on orders $75 and over at the moment. The milk crates were an add on to my Order for an IRON RANGE Vest (14002).

Bob, what's the top speed in your 570 full size?

JDog I took it up to 50 MPH on my gravel road just to see what it would do "Just for you".
I let off the gas at 50, and did not see if it would run any faster. I believe 50 was about all my old 2009 700 XP would do also.
For what I do, the 570 runs just fine so far.
Going up the steep hill behind the house with 400 pounds of corn to fill the feeders on the lease may be a test. I do not see it having any problem in Low 4X4, which is how I went up it with the 700 XP. Did I mention my old 2009 700 XP with over 4,000 miles on it still had the factory belt in it. I have always used Low, and avoided smoking the belt.

I did find another thing I need to address. I will need to relocate the rear shocks to the more vertical bolt holes, and crank up the springs both front and back. Setting up the Steel Handgun Match Saturday, I hauled 10 of our 1/2" steel silhouettes in the back. Probably 500 pounds total. That really set the back end down.

I took the nets off the doors this afternoon. No problem at all.

I had the Rear Shocks relocated to the OutBoard top mounting bracket. They had to unbolt the shock top and bottom to move it outboard.
The Spanner Wrench for adjusting the Springs is in the factory tool kit in the glove box.
Start by jacking each end up to unload the springs on the end you are working on.
They cranked up the Front end 2 additional notchs, and the back springs 3.
This stiffened the ride up, and took care of the rear squatting down with 500 pounds in the bed. That is all I have hauled in it so far.

I got my seat covers in from Green Mountain Outdoors. Installing the bottoms was a snap.
The seat back is a little harder. You will need to raise the bed and pull the Pin to get it out of the way to work. The seat back has 5 screws that hold it from the bed side of the cab.
You will need a size T25 X 4" MAGNETIC Torq screw driver. You need a good magnetic one to hold the screws.
You will probably need a Flexibal Shaft Magnet to retrieve the screws when you drop them down the seat back when you remove them.

It might not hurt to drop by your Polarus Dealer and ask a mechanic how the Seat Back is installed. It clips over slots on the top and has 5 screws from the back. Mine was still held by something in the center high on the back of the seat. No screws visible. As I did not plan on breaking anything, I installed the cover on the seat back with it still on held by this one mounting point. It would move and swivel so getting the cover on was not a problem. Off the vehicle would have been better though.

Another thing is the bolt access holes in the plastic on the back of the cab. Three of the 5 holes in the plastic had been opened up with a pocket knife to get the screws installed. I ended up opening up all 5 a little more. Opening them up to start with might allow you to get the screws out through the holes, instead of dropping them behind the seat.

I will work on some pictures shortly.

The granddaughter had my camera temporarily lost.


I like Green better than Red. My Old 2009 XP was too good a deal to pass up when I bought it, so I ended up with a Red One.
You can see the Glass Windshield in the picture. I Rain X treated it, and Like it just fine so far. I also like being able to remove it in about 1 Minute.


Seat Belt Interloc Jumper Plug. Just unplug and plug the seat belt wire back in to make it functional when needed.


Seat Covers installed. I could not get the head rest covers installed. Also notice the door nets are removed, and stored, I plan to reinstall them for trade in down the road.
You can barely make out the S-Caribener under the steering column with 550 cord attached to the Ignition Key. So far when hauling the key has not been shaken out of the ignition. :)


Back Glass Window, and Heavy Bed Matt cut from a Horse Trailer Floor Matt.

I am getting close to the 25 Hour Oil Change. So far I really like it. It is a little Noiser than it could be. I like the underseat storage much better than my old 2009 XP. Easier to access, and things are not buried in the bottom of the bucket like on my old machine. I keep Fencing Pliers, Side Cutters, Electrical Tape, Tow Strap, etc under the seats.

I bought the Polaris PS-4 Oil for it. $10.99 a quart was not terrible. I still plan on using the NAPA Gold Oil Filter.

How does your 570 fs handle those 31" outlaws? I just bought a new 570 fs and want to do a 2" and forward a arms. I was thinking about going 28's just because it is a 570, but would like to go 30 or 31 for the extra ground clearance.
