Polaris is well-know in ATV circles for  their high-performance side-by-sides. But they also have another arm called GEM that offers transport and light utility vehicles ideal for landscaping and speciality applications.

The latest GEM is the new Polaris® M1400™ gas-powered M 1400 and the GEM eM™1400 LSV street-legal electric utility vehicle.

The Polaris M1400 is a 4Ă—2 vehicle designed specifically for light-duty commercial utility applications.

The 31hp vehicle is equipped to handle the demands of a jobsite with 1,400 pounds of payload, a cargo box capacity of 1,100 pounds and the ability to tow up to 1,500 pounds.

“Our number one priority at GEM is to help customers find the right solution for their unique needs,” GEM General Manager Tim Blinkhorn said. “It is very common for accounts to require a fleet with a mix of electric and gas-powered vehicles.

By adding a Polaris engineered gas utility vehicle to our line with an extensive range of accessories,” says Blinkhorn, “GEM dealers are ready to provide the best tool – electric or gas – for the job.”
