Hi! New guy here. I just got a 2015 Ranger 570 Full Size and have a question about the Turf Mode. The drawing on the switch seems to indicate that only the right rear wheel is pushing when you are in turf mode. Is it the case that only right rear wheel is doing the work or does it actually act like an open differential in a car or truck where the wheel with the least traction spins and when both have equal traction both are receiving engine power to propel you?
To clarify, when in Turf Mode does power go to both rear wheels until traction is lost by one in which case it would spin?
Thanks!!

Turf Mode is open differential operation. Power is transmitted to the wheel with least resistance. It's just like a car.

Correct above and you might leave it in turf mode and try a few spinning test to the left and right, lot's of fun and you will see it first hand :)
