max speed on engaged differential?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I just noticed a sticker on the trooper dashboard "do not go over 20 mph with differentials engaged"

I have been riding around with rear locked at max speed half of time and some times i spin all 4 locked up in soupy mud at high speed.

My question is

Have you been going over 20 mph with differentials engaged?

Did you have any trouble from doing that?

I'd say with just the rear diff locked ur Allset I wouldn't drive 40 all locked up to much strain in my opinion I almost always have the rear locked


I totally agree with you about rear locked being all what we need for 95% of time.

I drive with my rear locked at 65 mph all the time so i wonder anyone else doing the same thing?

I'd have to say I'm brutal on lockers but i only engage and disengage at full stop.

I keep my rear locked almost all of the time to. I've run it wide open that way at times. Probably not a good idea on asphault though. I'' disengage it there.

      In 2016 I bought a midsized Ranger ETX. I don't recall exactly my out the door price but it was probably less than 8k. I've used it as a work machine around our home and 38acres. It's always run great and requires little maintenance. Still running strong. 
      So, for no reason I checked out a local dealer. I like the midsized UTVs so that's where I started. I was shocked the cheapest 570 I saw was a shade under 18k. I know an ETX Ranger was a budget SxS but wow, that's a 10k jump. When I was shopping back in '16 I think a 570 was about 1k more than my ETX.
      Well I guess I will be running this ETX till it breaks.
      Anyhow, I'm a big fan of the Rangers. When the time comes I'll be back but I had no idea. I haven't posted in a while. The ETX must not have sold a lot because you don't see many things posted. Hope other ETX owners had the same reliability I have had. I'm guessing if a cheap Ranger series like mine has been reliable then the guys with bigger ones are enjoying those as well.
      So, great machines, probably priced per the market but I had no idea. Ha

      We all know summer is hot inside the cabs of our SXS. So I've rigged up a couple of fans to help cool down the cab.
      I didn't want to drill the fan's "support rails" into the ROPS (Roll Over Protection System), aka roll bars. So I used water clamps to hold them in place. 
      I just need to replace the wires I ran with bigger gauge. Then finish the wiring to switches, relays, and battery. But the hardest part. The actual mounting of the fans is complete. Also just in case anyone plans on doing this. I may have to only use 1 fan in the middle instead on 2. Due the the draw on the battery.
      The fans are 12", 12V 80W. So I'm figured they were 6.7 amps apiece. Used the WAVe formula to get unknown values Watts=Amps*Volts then solve for unknown. I know the watts and volts from sticker on fan. So just used above formula to get amps. So a 7 amp fuse should be OK and a 10 amp fuse will be good. 
      So pulling 14 amps from the battery all day may be too much for the charging system to keep up with. And I haven't even installed the radio yet. So I will have to test and let you know.

      Hello. I need some help. I have a 2015 Polaris rzr 1000. I was told the clutch was bad so I put a new one in with a new belt and having the same problem. It won’t go over 55 mph and it takes forever to get to that speed. It also will not go over 6600rpm and it also takes forever to get there also. I’ve taking it to the dealership and had them look at it and they said they can’t find the problem. I’m at a loss. Has no check engine light at all. If someone could give me some ideas or has had this problem it would be much appreciated. Thank you Dave.

      Haven't posted in a while since solving the excessive cabin noise issue, so I thought I would share a few upgrades to my Sector... Realize that this is driven daily on the street, so some of the mods are to make it more streetworthy.

      Locking gas door.

      Rear view mirror.

      Modified windshield for better airflow in cabin.

      Lowered and modified headrest bar for improved rear view.  Tailgate protector.

      Folding armrests.

      Overhead utility rack.  Keeps the interior cooler and dryer, too!

      Folding rear seats.

      Dust cover and seat protector.
      If anyone wants links to the rear view mirror, seats, or arrests, let me know and I will post.  But know that everything requires some level of fabrication.  The utility rack was all custom built.  Cheers!
