Arctic Cats?


Recommended Posts

Hi all - new here.

Just getting into ATVs, & can't find enough info to make an informed decision. I want a 500, 4X4, auto, shaft drive, IFS, 4 wheel disc brakes, & the AC seems to be my best bet. Does the AC use belts within its case?

I guess I'm looking for firsthand experience w/ the AC ATVs - no "I know this guy that knew this guy that had problems" internet forum stuff. I'm very mech inclined, so am confident I can fix anything that might break. I'll add a winch & little else.

I'll mostly use it for trail riding, to follow my little wild man around on his ATV, but would like one I won't have to worry about abusing if the opportunity presents itself. There's a club not too far from my house & I know most of the guys there. Some have "heard" that the ACs aren't worth my time, but I'd rather hear someone's personal experience over second hand info.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I have a 2006 250 Arctic Cat 2wd, and I haven't found anything it couldn't do for me when I tried! I don't know much about it technically, but I can handle Sand dunes and desert terrain equally well. I mostly ride with little kids though, (mine) so I haven't pushed it real hard.

Arctic Cats are the way to go i own a 2003 400 4x4. What a machine there isn't anything i would change on it. But if u are just going to ride on the trails that would be fine with stock tires, but if u are gunna take it through some mud pits i suggest getting different tires. They are built very well and the ground clearance is amazing compared to everything else. Great work horses as well.

The one thing that stands out about Artic Cats is the suspension. They definately have a beefed up set up. I've ridden a 500 CC and found it to be very stiff. I like comfort and this is why I went with a King Quad. The Arctic Cat is also easier to rollover from what I have seen, sits high.
