2019 Sportsman® 6X6 570 Sage Green is rated out of 5 by 16.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poison oak sprayer from Good traction, good hauling capacity Bought this for property management. Towing a brush mower, hauling a weed sprayer, carrying tools, hauling dirt and wood and what ever else. It is not geared low enough, pulls the mower too fast for it to do a good job. Hauls stuff really well though. Takes a lot to turn it around though. It is big, and there is power to all four wheels all the time. The machine, regardless of what Polaris says is not geared towards work. It is a four wheeler with an extra axel bolted on and a bed thrown on. It can haul a lot, but needs refinement to be a work horse. I don't regret my purchase, but if there had been a 6x6 with a manual transmission I would have bought it instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Back-country Guy from Very useful, rugged machine, great in bush country This 6x6 is incredibly useful, built very tough, yet handles with ease, and performs a variety of tasks in all seasons. Well designed drive train. So much better than a normal 4 wheel ATV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Old90 from So far so good... Pro's - the EFI and power steering are awesome... Starts no problem every time so far including in temperature of -25 Celsius. I have had the bike upto 52 miles/hr head on into a strong wind. That's more than fast enough for a hardcore utility bike. I have loaded the box (with the Yukon Adventure Rack) as high as I could with fire wood and it rides no problem but negatively impacts the already poor steering radius. Most importantly the bike has tonnes of pulling power for work and out of all bikes the factory tires on this on are probably the best although I will be upgrading to a wider front tire when I put ITP Mud Lite XTR's on it. The negatives: the gear shifter is by far the worst part of that and all Polaris products with the same shifter. It's very difficult to accurately and easily/effortlessly shift to exact gear position you want. Try to put the bike in neutral for example.... guaranteed ANYONE is going to go back and forth between reverse and low or high range at least two or three times before they can get it to neutral and it's difficult to get the shifter to shift in any direction most of the time. I absolutely hate the gear shifter..... Yamaha, Kawasaki and Canam, Suzuki all have far superior shifters. The turning radius is not good at all....but that's to be expected with the extra set of wheels in the back and knew that before buying the bike... That's ok. I wish the bike had a differential lock on AWD. The lock and rode gun boot mount sucks as the gumboot is not firmly seated and wobbles all over regardless of adjustment to firm it up. Finally the battery location is idiotic -i get it that it was to lower center of gravity for the bike....but it's just plain stupid - should be under seat like most other bikes...easy access etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deuce from Upgrading my 6x6 I've been very pleased with my 2013 Polaris 800 Big Boss but wanted the upgraded features available on the 2018 570 model. The power steering, two up seating and increased fuel capacity were the main attractions but the better fuel economy and reduced engine heat were bonuses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BMoney from Big Boss does big things in a big way. Great value Rarely does a major purchase live up to my expectations and almost NEVER do they exceed them. I did a ton of research before buying the Big Boss. They are not common in my area as the dealer said this was the first one they had sold New which surprised me a bit. The BB is exactly what I need for around the farm. We’ve moved a ton of landscape rock, soil, fence posts, lumber and more in and out of tight spots that my truck can’t reach. The spring assisted dump on the BB is fantastic and works as advertised. I have not had to put it in 6 wheel drive yet at all. This thing is a beast!!! It wants to work. I got in the habit early of having a few different 5 gallon buckets kitted out with the tools/parts for different farm chores and I leave them by the BB and just grab one or two and put on the bucket holders straddling the second seat behind me. Very convenient. Plenty of storage in the front compartment. Enough for emergency tools, small fire extinguisher, first aid kit, etc. Very easy to drive. My girls (9 and 14) and wife had never been on a quad of any sort and yet took to the BB like a charm! They’re both learning the basics of driving while helping out around the farm. Seems to be plenty of power - I’m a big guy and I’ve had my wife in the two up seat with the BB loaded with a ton of gear/tools while towing a small utility trailer filled with dirt/rock. The thing performed flawlessly. Overall, the BB was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made, and I don’t say that lightly. Positives: spring assisted dump; two up; bucket holders built in; storage and towing capacity; easy to drive even for kids; plenty of power and traction; great value - lots there for the money you spend. Negatives: turn radius is fairly large but obviously much smaller than your truck; I want the biggger engine. Not sure I need it - seems to be plenty of power - but the option to spend a little more for the larger engine seems reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike946 from Nice unit, used for working around the property. This is my second 6x6 Polaris used my first one for 15 years for working on property. Never had any major issues with it, but kept up on routine maintenance. If this 2019 is anything like my old one I will be very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moose camp from Very pleased with performance Used for hunting season. Impressed with ride and how the unit handled heavy loads. Steering was a little iffy at times. Need a lot of room to turn around.
