Warrior Expo – RANGER HIPPO

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Coming Summer 2014, the Ranger Hippo is a collaboration between Polaris Defense and Mobile Hydraulic Equipment Company to produce a lightweight, all-terrain, alternative for the maintenance contact vehicle in order to access remote worksites.


Combining the well known capabilities of the Polaris RANGER Diesel along with the HIPPO 1041P, you now have Hydraulic, Electric, Pneumatic and Welding power all in a single unit powered by the RANGER’s Diesel engine.

The system will transport up to 3 personnel and up to 500 lbs of cargo in the box. This will support most light maintenance requirements and will reach those remote sites that are inaccessible by more traditional vehicles.

• Hydraulic power-fully adjustable 0-10 gpm @ 2000 psi hydraulic tool circuit (one outlet)
• Air power- 50 cfm @ 100 psi (three outlets)
• Electric power -5.2 kw @ 120 vac
• Welding power-240 amps dc stick
• Hydraulic- one hydraulic tool circuit
• Air- one 3?4 inch claw air fitting, two quick disconnect air fittings
• Electricity- two 120 volt electric outlets @ 20 amps
• Welding- one welding console with quick disconnects

In addition to MRO, the RANGER HIPPO would work for construction and demolition support as well as disaster relief and emergency services.
