Along with a proper, high-performance, winch, a prepared Polaris RS1 owner should also carry along a recovery kit equipped with various winch accessories. Any good recovery kit should include a snatch block, which is basically a mechanical pulley with a metal plate on the side that hinges open. Snatch blocks not only provide a mechanical advantage to augment the power of your winch, but they also make it easier to thread the winch cable through the shackel eyelet via the swinging side plate. Like a snatch block, lifting shackles are also used when winching as connector devices. They are typically implemented to link the winch line to the load, be it your RS1, a tree/shrub, or your buddy’s Can Am that always seems to get stuck for some reason. Tree trunk protectors (commonly referred to as rigging straps) are must-have winch accessories that will make any winching task easier by many multiples. Typically made of soft nylon material, tree trunk protectors wrap around the base of trees, poles, or shrubs and attach to your winch hook via a D-shackle or a clevis pin.
On the safety side of things, work gloves are advised when operating your UTV winch, especially if you run a cable winch line instead of a synthetic rope winch line. Cable lines are known to be frey, and these small strands of metal are extremely sharp. Cable winch lines can also snap on rare occasions, necessitating the need for a winch accessory known as a winch line dampener. Winch line dampeners are a winch safety accessory that help to reduce the risk of harm from a snapped and recoiling winch line. And any good recovery kit wouldn’t be complete with a durable denier carrying bag. Even if you don’t play in the mud, it’s always wise to pack a full set of winch accessories, because you never know what will happen on the trail.

An aftermarket UTV winch is only as good as the winch accessories you give it. You can have the world’s strongest winch on your Polaris RZR RS1, but if it’s using a weak nylon rope, it’s as good as useless. That’s why you should give your Polaris RZR RS1’s winch only the best synthetic winch ropes, winch cables, mounting bracket, fairlead, snatch block, and hook. The rope or cable you use is arguably the most important winch accessory for your Polaris RZR RS1’s winch. Synthetic winch ropes like the Polaris RZR Synthetic Winch Rope by Kolpin are great because they offer strength and durability without adding a ton of extra weight to the front end of your Polaris RZR RS1. On the other hand, winch wire cables are virtually unbreakable, but they can burden your Polaris RZR RS1 with quite a bit of weight.
The best way to shorten the life of your Polaris RZR RS1’s winch is to leave it exposed to the outdoor elements. Winch covers like the Polaris RZR Winch Cover by Rough Country solve this issue by protecting and preserving your winch when it’s not in use.
