Polaris has been making machines that not only take you out there, but they offer you a way out since the 1950’s.
Snowmobiles came first in 1954 and quickly established a track record for advanced engineering. All-terrain vehicles followed in 1985 and since their introduction have set the standard for performance and innovation.
1992 saw the arrival of personal watercraft and their unprecedented combination of power and comfort.
Then in 1997, the Polaris RANGER was born, creating a whole new class of off-road utility vehicles.
In 1998 Victory motorcycles were introduced, but of course, there's more to having a great time than just a great ride. So, Polaris makes Pure Polaris parts and accessories designed to match their machines better than anything off the shelf. It has been a fun ride, but then, after all these years that is what Polaris is all about.
In 1997 Smith Mining Equipment acquired the distribution rights for the products of Polaris Industries of
The Polaris Division was established to market and support the sales of Polaris quads and side x sides and offers a versatile range of All-Terrain Vehicles including sport and utility models as well as the Hardest-Working Smoothest Riding Ranger and Ranger RZR models.
With a country-wide dealer network as well as dealers in Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique together with Smith Power Equipment’s backup of parts and accessories, Polaris owners can be sure of our full commitment.
