Hey everybody! my first post!

Hi there, I just got my second prowler.. A 2010 xtx 700, the old one ('09 550) went back.. Just had too many issues with it.. I'm anxious to talk to a community of Prowler owners because I'm now a little sceptical of the AC name.. Been having a few issues with the new one too hope to hear from you all and participate in some good discussions!

Welcome aboard.

I think it's fair to say that all of the manufacturers have issues with their products. You can fix the issues your self or hope that the manufacturer recognizes the problem and will fix it for you. I have found that my first statement seems to work best. Post up your issues and someone will respond and try to help you.

Flying's advise is sound ...... don't wait for the factory and loose a bunch of sleep and aggravation over minor issues , just fix'em and move on ..

as said by someone smarter than I , everything manufactured these days will have some issue just hope they are all minor.

and welcome to the site

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

For the most part the xtx has been a great unit.. Loads of power and seemed to run pretty tight.. Until I was on the way back from the camp (quite a way back in the woods) and the drive belt completely detonated. I have had other units and snowmobiles that run on belt drive systems and understand that these things happen. The only thing that bothered me is that it was brand new and only had 180 miles on it. I guide for out of province deer hunters and really need a machine I can depend on without question (which is why the 550 had to go). That being said, I am totally not on here to "brand bash" at all.. I'd just like to know if its something I can prevent from happening or if someone knows anything about this..
