Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

Just got the new winch from Polaris. I had a 2008 rzr 800 but with tracks it just wasn't enough power. So I upgraded to a 2013 xp 900 limited. I first put my Polaris 3500 on it but I was worried about getting stuck with tracks so when I heard about the all new 6000 I had to have it. My question is has anyone out there modified there rzr to fit this winch? They don't make a bracket for it. I'm sure I will find a way but I was curious if anyone els had done this yet?

Re: Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

I havent seen it done. I think the winch motor will hit the frame, especially if you have to add a plate on top of the current winch mount for the larger bolt pattern. You may have to mount it on a bumper rather than behind the radiator.
Curious why you chose the Polaris chinese made winch instead of another mfg?
Or just get a snatch block?
The largest ive heard of being a direct bolt in is the viking 5000. The motor is small....

Re: Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

You got me a little worried when you sed it would hit the frame so I slid it in place. Lots of room. The only thing it hits are hoses. As far as the Polaris winch goes. I have had 3 Polaris winches and none of them have failed me. My warn and Ramsey's have. Probably just a cowinsadence but I like the Polaris winches.

Re: Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

I thought Polaris was made by Warn, could be wrong I guess.

Re: Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

Look into what the mounting bolt pattern is. It may be the same as the 4.0 series warn winches and the superwinch terra 4500.... if so then just buy a mounting plate from KFI

Re: Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

Sorry I have been super busy lately haven't done much to the rzr. It fit great. Just welded a new plate on top of the old one.

Re: Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

Just thought I would do some updates. A buddy of mine just bought the same 6000 after seeing the power and performance of mine. When we went to mount his we disided we hate not seeing the spool when winching. I'm not much for buying things that I can build better so we will be building winch bumpers over the next couple weeks. Ill post more pics as we go.
With 6000 pounds I'm not relying on bolts. I will be building custom plates that weld straight to the lower chassis, and 1 3/4 tube stingers
First thing to go was the plastic on the bottom

Re: Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

There aren't any off the shelf bumpers i have seen that would handle a 6k anyways. I bent the emp piece of trash bumper in the first trip with a4k winch, and that was with a Warn winch that keep disengaging under load. ( had it replaced twice and rebuild twice before the 6 month warranty expired, i have the same winch as the polaris on the rear in 3500lb and its been problem free and its been under water and mud repeatedly. I well never buy another Warn atv.winch, and i think very highly of their automotive winches.

Re: Polaris pro HD 6000 winch install

I have the 3500 polaris winch and this last summer i pulled out a maverick and a xp900 4seater at the same time. I love my polaris winch and if i upgrade, it will be the 6000.
