Polaris BRUTUS HDPTO for Snow Removal

As the first side-by-side utility vehicle on the market to deliver front-end power take-off (PTO), the Polaris BRUTUS HDPTO is equipped with a 24-horsepower diesel engine with hydrostatic transmission. The HDPTO also comes ready to operate three optional attachments ideal for snow removal, including a hydraulically controlled 69-inch snow blade that provides operators the ability to angle plow 30 degrees left or right from inside the vehicle.

The PTO-powered attachments include a 70-inch angle broom and a two-stage snowblower with 62 inches of cutting width. The angle broom clears slush from any paved surface at a rate of 1,257 feet per minute, and the snowblower eats up snow while an impeller blows it up and out of the hydraulic chute.

A treadle pedal allows users to move forward or in reverse without shifting gears, providing an ideal setup for plowing and sweeping. The fully enclosed cab featuring heat, defrost and air conditioning ensures users are comfortable.
