The M1400 gas-powered commercial side-by-side utility vehicle by Polaris Industries Inc., is the first gas-powered utility vehicle available for purchase through authorized GEM dealers. It is a 4x2 vehicle designed specifically for light-duty commercial utility applications. The vehicle features 1,400 lbs. of payload, a cargo box capacity of 1,100 lbs., and the ability to tow up to 1,500 lbs.
GEM General Manager Tim Blinkhorn said the vehicle was built because many of the company’s customers require a fleet with a mix of gas- and electric-powered vehicles.
The M1400 features a Polaris ProStar 31-hp engine with electronic fuel injection and reaches a top speed of 26 mph, which can be limited with the optional Polaris Speed Key. Independent rear suspension and front IFS MacPherson Strut ensures safe and efficient transport even when hauling at maximum capacity.
Available options and accessories make it easy for customers to configure the vehicle for their specific jobsite applications. Factory installed options include removable bed sides and a fully enclosed max box. Additionally, the vehicles support Polaris’ Lock & Ride and Lock & Work accessories.
The utility vehicles come with a two-year limited warranty.
