We have 2010 XTZ's in stock if anyone is looking. Arctic Cat is offering a 500.00 rebate and you can pick one up at a great deal. PM for special price. Need to move them!
I know the feeling about family. I deal with the same on and off. But I've learned, I just do what I need to so that the business will get done and make money.I'm in the same boat on pricing with my 10's. I would love to make a race car, the other part of my family working here just would not go for that. It's tough working with family, everyone is never happy at the same time it seems like.
Glad to hear your wife came out okay. Kudos to the Prestige build. And people ask me why I like to use 1.75"x.095 and .120 wall DOM in my cages...that is why, not for me, but for my loved ones....Keep fighting the good fight guys!!! I can't wait to get my Prowler back out there tearing it up! Nothing can touch a XTZ!!!
on a side not my wife rolled her Prestige built Rhino 2 and half times last weekend. She was alone and is fine! Thanks for a great build Prestige and a super strong cage to keep my family safe!!!
It adds up quickly, I've put over 20G in mine so far and am now tearing it down to the bare chassis, starting all over. I'm building up a BajaPro machine, very similar in appearance and function as DragonFire's Nessy. It'll be a full tube cage on the OEM chassis rails as spec'd by SCORE and BITD. 5 inches longer wheelbase (A-Arm mounts will remain in the original place though) and a total height of about 5.5 feet. The long travel suspension we are building for it will have 17 inches of travel, using King Shocks.Well my Prowler can be a race prowler real easy guys??? just saying
I am about out of money to spend on this stuff, but I would love to race it.
I ordered the minimum, smallest cc ATV's I could to qualify, but I agree with you, Cat is killing their dealers with their bullcrap. John Deere doesn't require order minimums to qualify for programs or to be able to offer financing.I did not order in wave 3. I tried working with my rep, but he wasn't wanting to budge on his end, he kept trying to get me to order ATVs and we repeatedly told him no because we can't sell the ones we have. I know Yamaha does not require an order to get programs, I think that is how most the Japs are. Case also does not require us to order so many tractors to get programs. They come out with different programs every month and if they see that a certain product just isn't moving good for the dealers they come out with a special discount for the units that dealers have in stock and if they start selling a unit for cheaper than what we bought one and we still have it in stock they credit us the difference. AC is biting their dealers in the but, and they don't realize that they are biting themselves when they do that.
Chris, Darryl, and MikeExactly. Which tech did you talk to. I always deal with Scott, he has always been good for us to work with. Another thing I love (wish you could hear my sarcasm) about cat are the repair times they give. I have brought this up with them before. A lot of times they just carry times over from previous models even when big changes were made. I confronted them about this and they told me they take a unit and do the repairs 3 times and take the average. I then tried to tell them it is different working on a machine that has been used then on a new one, but they didn't care. Nothing is Arctic Cats fault! atleast thats what they want you to think.
Service bulletins are sent out to the dealers in a letter form with the bulletin. But some of the problems, such as the tie-rod bending, are not sent out. They are listed on the Arctic Cat Dealers site and the dealers have to search them out. More than once, I've taken an afternoon and sat at the computer, looking through the AC Dealer's site, trying to find info such as the tie-rod bulletin.refreshing to read the truth isn't it. hat's off to you guys !!!
I took my unit [170 miles] in to have them replace the new windshield they installed and cracked at 4 spots OOOOPS anyway I told the dealer about the different service bulletins brought up here and he looked at me like I was a three headed monster .. he went right to his computer and sure enough there the info was. he was very embarrassed and said he had never received notice of these issues. question is..are the notices sent out to all dealers in a form to alert them of the issues ?? or is he just under so much pressure he has no time to read them, giving the benefit of doubt here as I would like to think he is a good/decent dealer.
