I came across this 1999 Sportsman Diesel for sale on Craig's List, if anyone is lookin'. Just thought I'd share, since they seem to come up few and far between..... Polaris 455 Diesel ATV

Answer in Advance: No, this is not my machine or anyone I know.... just sharing a find.

Even though the diesel failed miserably, mainly because it was brutally slow and lacked glow plugs, I've always remained curious.
Maybe I would buy one if I could find one in good shape and relatively close to home. LOL!
Thanks for posting. I'm sorry I didn't find it months ago.

Arctic Cat still makes a diesel model: 700 Superduty Diesel. I've talked to a couple guys that own them. Kinda slow, maybe 45 mph tops, 1 guy said after his was broken in, he got 54 mph. A few guys have done turbo conversions, then they get pretty interesting. The guys that own them claim that they will pull like hell, great for a farmer, maybe.

No AC dealer anywhere near me though. Too bad.
