Medina-based Polaris is cutting 460 jobs.

The maker of snowmobiles, ATVs, and other leisure vehicles says the layoffs include 160 full-time positions, or about 5 percent of its workforce.

The rest are contractors, part-time, and temporary workers. Polaris says the job cuts will be made over the coming weeks.

Earlier this week, Polaris cut production of its Ranger utility vehicle at its Roseau plant, eliminating 110 employees.
