Polaris of Medina, Minn., is recalling about 43,000 ROVs and utility vehicles sold in the U.S., and Canada.
The drive belt can break during operation and damage the inner clutch cover assembly and fuel line, which can result in a fuel leak, posing a fire hazard.
The firm has received three reports of drive belt failure resulting in a damaged fuel line, including two reports of fire, neither of which involved property damage other than to the vehicle. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves model year 2020-2021 RANGER 1000 & RANGER CREW 1000, model year 2020 ProXD 2000G & 4000G, model year 2020-2021 Ariens/Gravely JSV3200, JSV3400, & JSV6400, model year 2020 Bobcat UV34 4x4 GAS & UV34 XL GAS, and Model Year 2021 Bobcat UV34 4x4 GAS off-road vehicles.
The vehicles were sold in black, tan, red, titanium, green, camo, blue, gray and white.
The RANGER vehicles have three or six seats, and the ProXD, Ariens/Gravely, and Bobcat vehicles have two or four seats.
The RANGER and ProXD vehicles have “POLARIS” stamped on the front grille, the Ariens/Gravely vehicles have “Gravely” stamped on the front grille, and the Bobcat vehicles have the Bobcat logo on the front grille.
