FRANKLIN, TENN – September 4, 2012 – The Outdoor Recreation Company of America opened for business here this week and began production on a line of premium, American-made coolers designed specifically for hunters, anglers and sportsmen and women who expect outstanding performance from their outdoor gear.

ORCA, the acronym for the company’s official name, will manufacture its rugged, roto-molded coolers and other premium outdoor products exclusively in the United States from American-made components, according to owners Jim Ford, Brentwood, Tenn., and Cliff Walker, Knoxville, Tenn. “There is a tremendous demand from outdoor enthusiasts throughout the world for premium coolers that keep ice frozen and perishables edible for several days under extreme conditions,” Ford said. “And, the demands for those coolers to be made in the United States using American-made components at a competitive price is even greater. ORCA’s coolers and its other premium outdoor products will not only meet those demands, our products will be manufactured to exceed those demands.”

RUGGED RIDGE DEVELOPS UNIQUE SNORKEL SYSTEM FOR ’07 - ’11 JK JEEPS®

The standard low-mount snorkel system from Rugged Ridge.

The standard Modular XHD Snorkel System comes with a low-mount intake that is located away from the front of the vehicle, a safer position that prevents dangerous exposure to water during fording of rivers and streams. An optional high-mount ‘ram’ accessory moves the air intake up an additional 21-inches to the top of the windshield for deeper water crossing. The new design also benefits from the ability to draw cool air from outside the hot engine bay. Rugged Ridge’s snorkel is manufactured from durable, heavy gauge plastic, mandrel bent aluminum and high temperature silicone connecting hoses. A built-in valve allows owners to clean and drain a catch basin, preventing water from entering the intake system while out on the trail. Because this system retains the use of factory style air filters, it is not compatible with other aftermarket cold air intake kits and snorkels. "When JK owners were asked online what they would like in a snorkel design, the response was overwhelming,” said Matt Stanesic, Director of Engineering at Omix-ADA. “Feedback poured in, starting an amazing interactive process between JK owners and our engineers to work together on a totally new concept. After extensive research and development, the new Modular XHD Snorkel System is finally a reality, delivering on the best of these ideas and creating a revolutionary new product.” Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel Systems are covered by an industry leading three-year limited warranty and are available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide, starting at $319.99.

Consumers Digest Names Five Yamaha ATVs to Best Buy List

Featuring the best power-to-weight ratio among sport ATVs, the 686cc fuel-injected engine and overall performance of the 2012 Yamaha Raptor 700R impressed the Consumers Digest team in a variety of terrain.  Also noted was that the 700R can be customized with a choice of 11 different graphic options at no additional charge, which is an industry first.  The 700R Special Edition was selected as a Best Buy for its addition of a wave-type rear disc and unique graphics to the 700R’s design. Earning its second Best Buy award since 2008, the 2012 Yamaha Raptor 250 was commended for producing the kind of performance that riders might expect from a higher-end model.  Consumers Digest cited the Raptor 250’s light weight and low seat height as features that help make it “… a fun machine for riders, regardless of their size.”  The 2011 Raptor 250R also received a Best Buy for the addition of upgraded shocks, LED taillight and adjustable front-brake lever to the 250’s construction. “Yamaha has injected real world value into the all-new Grizzly 300 and offers class-leading performance throughout our Raptor line of sport ATVs, and we couldn’t be more proud to have an impartial, third party like Consumers Digest recognize this with Best Buy awards,” said Steve Nessl, marketing manager for Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group.  “Receiving a Best Buy is exciting, but earning five Consumers Digest Best Buy nods this year in both utility and sport ATV categories is a unique and exclusive honor that symbolizes Yamaha’s dedication to excellence and leadership in the ATV industry.” About Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A.Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., (YMUS), a leader in the motorsports market, makes the toughest, most capable and versatile ATV and Side-by-Side vehicles.
