Starting

2011 700 HDX prowler won't start in temperatures below 40. Put a brand new battery in back in august. Prowler will turn over but just seems like it's not turning fast enough to start. Would a trickle charger help. We got 6" of snow and no prowler to go play in it.

...not sure what weight is recommended for your machine. On my 2010 700XTX Prowler, Arctic Cat ACX (Arctic Cat Extreme) is what is recommended. It is a pure synthetic with an oil rating of 0-40W. Might try a vehicle jump from your car or truck battery and see if it starts. The small Batteries on the AC's do not have a lot of cranking power. You may want to research the oil you are using if it starts up. I'm sure other members will chime in on the use of proper oil in the cats. Keep us posted.

I think one of the best things you can do is put a battery tender on it every time you put it away,,,,thats what I do my camp is up in the mountains of nh and my buggy is there all winter long ill go up sometimes when its 30 below 0 up there and I never had a problem starting it .......plus its the best thing you can do for your battery ,hot or cold,,,,,,,just my 2 cents

I agree with muddogefi winter or summer if it sets for very long the electronic's will drain the battery some after a while.
