im not a fan of cats but thats just me personally. They are good machines, I will say if you are spending the money be sure to opt for the EPS. Its worth the money so dont pass it up to save some money on a model that doesnt have it.

friend has one and the in/out bearing went out again, 2nd time, just got it back today and they took it out and did not replace it cause it's not needed.  900.00 repair, you might want to check on that.

Can you say this again more slowly for me. Why did he think it needed to be replaced again if they found nothing wrong once they tore it apart? :confused:

I bought a 2015 new old stock in a 550 this summer. When I was looking over what info I could find , they were saying that Cats 700 was underpowered for a 700 class machine. Most 700 are twins, Cat is not

when the bearing went out the rig would not go, start and put in gear and die.  so the 1st time they replaced the bearing and when it went out again they said it wasn't needed so they did what ever to get it back up running.  I'm not sure what they did as it was not my place to jump in and question them on the ins and outs of it.  if I learn more I will post

I used to work at a Yamaha and Arctic cat dealer years ago. Yamaha outsold Cat by a lot then, the gap is closer now, that being said I own 2 Yamaha. 02 kodiak and 06 kodiak, dad owns 2 grizzly's, brother owns 2 kodiak's. They take a beating and just keep going with basic maintenance. I would stick to Yamaha or Honda if it were my money. Just my .02 cents.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
