The best UTV winch in the world is useless without a winch rope or winch cable. And even with a proper winch line, unless you received the knot tying badge in boy scouts, you’re gonna need a hook, some D- or U-shackles, and a clevis pin when operating your winch in the field. Ergo, a proper recovery kit with a variety of winch accessories is a good thing to keep in your Polaris ACE at all times. Side by side and winch companies like KFI and Warn make great winch accessory kits with everything you could possibly want or need when winching in your Polaris ACE. A winch cable hook stopper, for instance, is a great winch accessory that provides a multitude of benefits. Not only does a winch cable hook stopper eliminate noise and clatter from the winch hook rattling around on the trail, but it also keeps tension on the winch line -- which mitigates rubbing and reduces wear -- and prohibits the winch cable from going too far into the winch -- which can damage the winch rollers, the winch gears, and even the motor of the winch.
If you run muddy trails, sand dunes, or anywhere with airborne dust and particulate, covering your ACE winch with a UTV winch cover is not a bad idea. And on a similar vein, using shackle isolators and washers will both prevent your shackle from corroding due to moisture, and keep it from damaging the finish of your bumper or grill. From snatch blocks and recovery straps to kevlar reinforced winching gloves, at Everything Polaris RZR, we’ve got the best winch accessories and recovery tools to keep you and your ACE unstuck and on the move. Don’t wait till it’s too late and get yours today! We guarantee that once you get stuck, you’ll be glad that you did.
