:cold_md_wht:

I am ready to purchase a cab system for the RZR since winter is right around the corner. Anybody have the Polaris Poly Cab system? Anybody with one please give the good/bad/ugly on it?

I like the lock and ride system since I will be taking it off in the warm months. I have looked at a whole bunch of them since I bought my RZR and finally decided on this one. I would go full beaver pro but thats almost double the money without the lock and ride convience. I am up for any suggestions though.

Thanks!

Just bought my RZR and had the poly cab installed on it. I like it the doors just slide off when wanted. They lock into place and have key locks. The slid open rear window is cool also. Have about two hours on my machine and the only thing that I have noticed is with the doors on my left elbow catches the door handle. Also they removed the side bars to put this on and that removes the nets from being used also.

Thanks for the response! Is there any way to have some sort of half door or take the window out?

Not sure if that can be done but let me look at it tomorrow and I will look at it construction wise to see if there might be a way to do something. To bad the dealers don't have this things to look at. It makes it hard to decide without seeing it, doesn't it.

yeah it really does and for the cost you cant really afford to make a mistake. I love the idea of the doors coming off in the summer. I just dont want to have nothing there in case of a roll over where the nets would have helped you stay in the cab.

I have put a couple pics in my garage for you to look at. The door is one piece of plexi and is bolted to the frame. To try and make half doors doesn't look easy. Also as you can see the dealer removed the side nets and the tubing. Not to sure I like that but ask me again the end of May when I will be back from Utah trip. It sures is easier to get in and out though. Might want to consider better harness belts down the rode. I had odered the glass winshield that would open out but didn't seam to work with the cab, Went with the plexiglass removable window I think I like better. Hope this helps.

One more question, how well does it keep wind and water out?
Well I have not had the RZR too long yet so out in nasty weather I realy cannot say yet. There are gaps here and there around the assembly that I am sure would allow a little water to possibly get in, but not too much. Plastic parts like this need high clearance in the design to take in for mold shrinkage and warp etcc. So a supper snug fit would be hard to do. The doors both have a rubber seal around the frames of them and the doors do close with a nice firm feel. Not any nasty rattle from the doors when driving across my yard with farm rows to run up and down. All in all I feel it will keep most wind and water from making it uncomfortable. And without seeing other cabs, other than pictures, I cannot say if this product is better or worse than another. Thats my two cents on it for now, I am pleased. I want to find a way to reinstall side web with doors off though.

I think the windshield is the standard lock and ride. I have yet to take it off yet. I run a Halloween Haunt all month and time is little. However if you give me till next week I will see if I can get you some pics of how it is installed and actualy take it off once and put it back on. Along with some of where it comes down to meet the hood. I do not see anything that concerns me yet though. Oh and I will pull the seats out so you can see that.:)

I have this cab with windshield and really did like it. the doors removed easily and I left the windshield on all summer. Looks like it lists for $2250 with windshield. I have this system and would sell for $1100. Not sure how I could ship, but located in Indianapolis if you are interested.
Only reason I am selling is that I have a custom roll cage now and it won't work.
I did cut out holes to use on the "s" cage, but they could be blocked off is not interested.
I put photos in my album if there's any interest?

I am thinking of purchasing the poly cab for my rzr. What are the pro's and con's? I cannot get any help at all from Polaris and my local dealers. Alot of coinage to spend without being able to see one. I am thinking of buying the tilt out windshield also to allow more air in the cab when running down the trails. Has anyone used this combo? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Welcome to the forums Florida.

I have had the poly cab for over a year and a half (2 winters) and had a flip out windshield before I owned the cab on another RZR. On the flip out windshield (a Kolpin), I never used it. Maybe a couple of times but very rarely. It seems like a nice option but I didnt care for it myself. There was enough wind without it being open I never felt the need to open it.

On the cab, look at my garage to see pics of it. On the pro side its great in the winter in combination with a heater. I plow with my RZR and when its really cold like in the 20s and below, with the wind kicking up especially, I dont think I would be out there as much as needed to keep my long driveway clear in heavy snow season. Luckily we arent having much snow this year and I am thankful for that. The last 2 seasons were horrible and without heat I would have been calling someone to come do my 1000+ foot driveway. In the summer the doors come off just like a jeep and I kept it on all summer with no doors and 4 point harnesses. It would be nice to take the whole thing off but even though it says lock and ride its quite a task to take it off.

So on the con side, its hard to take on and off but doable if you are really motivated. Another con is that the plastic scratches in the woods. It can happen pretty easily. I take novus plastic scratch remover once a year and it makes it look really clear again, although not all the the scratches will come out. The other con is it will fog up in there on the windshield. I use a cloth and/or the defrost on the dash. I wouldnt suggest a cab without the air/heat. As a side note, my heater has a coolant shutoff valve so I can decide between heat in the winter and cool air (just the fan) in the summer.

Thats the short and sweet version of my experiences with it. I dont regret at all buying it.

Tiorum3- Thank you so much for your response. I was so mixed up with all the cabs and reviews my mind was going crazy, only thing I knew was that I wanted a cab. Main reason is that I could take my son 4-wheeling in the winter and be confortable. I cannot handle the cold very well and also being wet makes it miserable for me. I decided to go to Youtube and check out videos of the polycab, and rangerware. The video of the rangerware cab was awesome in how it detailed the cab and fit up. So to make a long story short, I have decided to bite the big one......I will be ordering the rangerware today. Only thing, I wish it has a sliding back window.... :-(

I looked at the beaverpro cab as I loved the idea of full or half doors. Trying to order a beaverpro was miserable!! They took forever to return a call. Lack of sales follow up was poor to say the least, and then told me that after they shipped it, if it arrived damaged, I would have to work that out with the shipping company! WHAT? All this after I told them I wanted the cab and wanted it yesterday. Talk about not wanting to take someone's money! Then the current exchange rate made it almost $100 more than what we had agreed on, oh and i forgot to mention that they wanted my SSN# for custom reasons! Beaverpro seems like a respectable company, just not the promptness I need to see in order to spend $4400 for all the accessories that I wanted. I just couldn't help but to think that if they were this laxadasical about taking my order, what would happen if I needed parts or support after the sale? Only after deciding not to place an order, did they promptly follow up and tell me they would work with me in any way to gain my confidence and hopefully change my mind to purchase one.

Anyone who has a beaverpro cab, I hope they love it and hope they are receiving great support, it just was not my cup of tea. I certainly dont want others to think I am trying to bash beaverpro, I am just trying to inform others of the issues I had with them.

I realize the Rangerware cab is alot more than the others, but I truly believe you get quality with this cab. Hope I am right! Will update later with pictures!

Thanks to all for your postings and look forward to talking with many soon!

Two thoughts come to mind.

One is that the Poly cab does have a sliding rear window. I like it a lot. Two is that the doors on the Poly cab are all clear as opposed to the beaver pro cab which only has windows. I like the openness of the clear doors although it makes the scratches more visible since the whole door is clear. I ordered the Poly cab because of the ability to see through more of the door and that was the deciding factor for me.

Good luck in the purchase!
