The Prowler does save work, all year actually. We split work with trail riding 50/50. Its good to see other Arctic Cat owners with a positive attitude toward the brand. My whole family rides Arctic Cat ATV's, along with one of best friends. I'm actually amazed that I haven't suffered more breakage due to some of the abuse I've put my machine through. One recent thread on here mentions the trouble RZR owners have had with their machines, and it supports my theory that it doesn't matter what ya own, all brands have their problems, but they also have their strong points.
