This machine has no power going up hills. Putting the peddle down gives me 5000 RPM but a 10 mph response. It runs faster on flat terrain. I appreciate any advice.

Time to check the drive belt. Have you been using "low' when going up hills or towing? rpm's increasing says to me that the belt is slipping. google Polaris ranger forum's lots of info.

Thanks Guys that is what I will do. Is it difficult to change the belt? Should I take it to a Dealer?

The belt may just need an adjustment. They do wear and stretch.

10 minutes for a belt swap. I have same machine and that's what mine did when I pulled a tree in high gear, burnt the belt up. Also had bad fuel pump once.

New belt install was easy. The new belt is wider than the one I replaced, I assume it was wore out. I still feel like I am not getting full throttle. I wonder if the throttle cable is stretched.?
