Very Impressed
By Greg Gumpinger(Owner), Jan. 18, 2011
Purchased this machine just recently and love it so far, great ride and handling. The 550 fan has more than enough power for the lake and trails. Have always owned Ski-Doo and now switched over because of price, great value for your hard earned money. Read Full Review

I take immaculate care of this thing and prep it for spring like a mechanic. I also run no ethanol fuel... Read Full Review

Great sled
By Jim Hall(Owner), Jun. 8, 2011
Purchased this sled in January and love it. Great value. Very comfortable. I have teenagers and do not want a performance machine. This machine is fast enough. This is a great work machine also. Read Full Review
