Looking at used 2010 700 XTX

I joined the forum because I am going to look at a 2010 700 XTX Prowler tomorrow. What should I be sure to look for? What are the "weak" points of this model? Any recommendations and advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Welcome Richmond Kid. The 700 has been pretty good. Have heard of a few things lately. But all and all the 700's have been pretty good to people.

Inspected it - more questions

I looked at and drove the 2010 Arctic Cat Prowler and have some questions. The unit is pretty low mileage and looks to be in quite good condition. However, when I drove it, it was really jerking around at low speed (or slight accelerator pedal pressure). This was both starting off and slowing down. Is this normal or is it probably because I need to "learn" the Prowler accelerator characteristics. Also, the exhaust seems to be noisy (at least noisier than a Ranger a friend has). This is important to me since it will primarily be used on a game ranch. Is the Prowler exhaust usually pretty noisy?

Thanks for helping since I don't have any experience with a Prowler.

I have not heard anything about the 700 being jerky. I own a 650 so I don't have first hand experience. Mine is pretty quiet most of the time. It does have a slight whistle under heavy acceleration though.
