Should Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit be Used on All 4 Wheels of 1,936 Pound Polaris Ranger


Regarding item # EM09160, is the 1,500lb Working Load Limit for one single strap or is that for a pair of straps? I need to secure a Polaris Ranger XP-1000 Crew cab with a dry curb weight of 1,936 lbs. Would you recommend one set of these straps for two wheels or two sets for four wheels? I’m also considering the e-track system. If I go that direction, what chocks and straps would you recommend for securing this Ranger?


Expert Reply:

The 1,500 pound working load limit (WLL) for the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 referenced in your question does refer to the combined capacity of both straps and chocks. Since your Polaris Ranger weighs close to 2,000 pounds, I do recommend using two of these sets to secure all four of its wheels to the trailer.

This tie-down kit will provide you with 4 wheel chocks and 2 ratchet tie-down straps for securing 2 wheels. The ratchet straps feature E-track fittings that will snap right into the anchor slots on the chocks. I have attached a short video demonstration on this system that you can check out.

If you are wanting to install E-Tracks like the 4 foot long # EM19147 instead, then I recommend using a couple wheel tie-down straps like # EM58523 to secure the Polaris Ranger. Each strap features a WLL of 1,100 pounds so using two will give you a combined rating of 2,200 pounds. I have attached a video demonstration on this strap that you can check out as well.
