Hello everyone,

I have a 2019 Polaris Ranger 900XP that we use for work in tall grass and sagebrush areas, where quite a bit of grass seeds, dirt, pollen...etc collects in the radiator. I was wondering if anyone knows of a tool(that connects to a garden hose?) or something that would work to wash all of this junk out of the radiator from the backside(ie. push everything out the front of machine)?

We have taken the radiator out completely to wash it in a washtub, which worked pretty well, but I was hoping to find an easier way, without having to fully dismantle the machine every time.

Thanks!

Put a screen on it ,, air works better than water

Thanks for the reply, the work we do we use a water soluble chemical and it's sort of sticky which is what causes the seeds/dirt to collect in the radiator. We've put a screen over the radiator before, but the dirt still gets through and then the screen clogs up and doesn't allow air flow through the radiator.

I was hoping maybe someone had found a flexible water wand that would allow me to wash the radiator out from the backside, so we aren't shoving all the junk farther into the radiator?

You can hang the screen by taking the hood off and cutting a piece that is a little wider than the hood, when you reinstall the hood it will hold it in place. Make it long enough to hang down below the bumper, you will need to slice it to fit over the mounting arms of the bumper, eezee peezee. One of the first things I did to mine, works great. My radiator never gets clogged.

I have one of these for the water heater in my rv I used on my radiator this past spring. The outside spigot at the farm runs about 90 psi and it had plenty of pressure to back flush the radiator. Mine was mainly packed with fescue seed.
