I carry a jump lithium battery pack, a tow rope, and a bunch of different tow hitch styles. I donít carry any spare parts and very little tools (pliers, screwdrivers, crescent wrench). If repairs or maintenance is required, I will tow it to the trailer.

WE sometimes operate after dark so we carry a slightly different items. Here goes.

Electrical tape in its box.
4-way screw driver.
Many zip tires, some large.
A mid sized crescent wrench.
And a LED flashlight with fresh batteries each fall.
Light weight tow strap 15ft or so long.
Racket winch if the machine doesn't have a regular one.
What I'm I forgetting??

the 570īs radiator has a tendancy to get caked up pretty quick and have the HOT light come on so i'd suggest you bring as many water bottles as u can to rince radiator off if your doing any serious mud riding.

I have the Polaris rear cargo box on my ‘15 570. It holds my 2 gallon gas can, dewalt bag full of all the tools I could need and then some, tire repair kit, compressor, dewalt 20v chainsaw w spare battery which all fits snug as a bug in a rug in the box which is the roughly 16”x16”x36” (just a guess). The stock compartment between the rear tail lights holds my ropes and straps. The front compartment above the fenders is where I installed my dual battery setup. Really liking this set up!

I carry spare fuel using a Kolpin bracket and can. I mounted it off the back of the rear rack. With my rear storage bag in place it doesn't look too obtrusive, although when I take the storage bag off (hardly ever) it stands out like a sore thumb.

For spare parts all I carry is a spark plug and a belt, although I don't relish the idea of changing a belt on the trail.

My tools consist of a small 3/8 drive socket set with sockets that fit both metric and SAE, a screw driver handle that accepts driver tips from straight to phillips to torx bits, the machine's tool kit, a cresent wrench, pocket knife and multi tool.

For accessories I carry electric tape, duct tape, cable ties, a tow strap, a squirt bottle cap to screw on water bottles to flush crap out of the radiator fins, a folding saw to cut smaller trees/branches and a chain saw chain (not looped) with rope on each end to cut larger trees.
