Works so well, you won't even know it's winter.
Thank you for your interest in our heater for the
Yamaha Rhino. Our system is unique in that it takes
hot air from the radiator and delivers it to the
passenger area. Other systems either use an electric
heating element or coolant to transfer the heat to the
The type which I feel works the poorest and gives you
the most liability is the electric. They draw a lot of
current, put strain on your battery and charging
system, and worst case scenario can leave you
stranded. They also do not produce much heat.
The coolant/heater core type work well, but have
some draw backs. One is that you are tapping into the
Rhino's cooling system, adding additional coolant lines
and connections. Each addition connection has the
potential to leak. They also cause the Rhino to run
cooler which can lead to plug fouling and carbon build
up in the cylinder. This is because the Rhino has a
small engine and the heater core is essentially an
additional radiator which increases the cooling capacity
beyond the design standards of Yamaha. Both the
electric and coolant types can affect the reliability of
Our heater is easier to install than the coolant type,
and will not run down your battery. There is only one
moving part. You simply pull a lever on the dash and
heat is channeled to a vent under the dash. Push the
lever in and the hot air simply flows as it would if you
had no heater. Our units do not affect the cooling
capacity of the radiator. We have tens of thousands of
miles logged on test vehicles with out a single failure.
As a matter of fact, the prototype is still in use today.
If you want a simple, reliable, easy to install heater for
the Rhino, then I believe ours is the best choice.
