When I step on the gas there is a high pitched horrible squealing sound like a belt slipping or something. It seems to be worse after it runs for a while. Once you pick up some speed, the sound seems to disappear. It also has been leaving a trial if blackish drops on the snow, but I don't know if these two things are related. Any advice on what can be wrong? Maybe some kind of an oil leak near the clutch? This Prowler has about 75 miles on it and is just a few months old. We have been working it pretty hard pushing snow lately.

thanks

mine makes that noise when i get almost up to the top of the hill and or trying to get it unstuck.. i thought the belt could have had a bad spot in it but it didnt. i havent seen any black dripping though either.. My cousins i think has made that nose a couple times to but he was stuck and really trying to get it out.... i would check your rearend another budy had a rhino and he just snapped both axles. i wasnt with him at the time and dont know if it made any noises

Sounds like classic belt slippage to me.As far as the oil could be anything,rear end , axle seal,etc. That should be easy enough to find.

I am just disassembling ours now. When you have it in H it slips like a ***** and barely moves. In low gear or Reverse it will go. Was leaving a black puddle also. When I spilt the case half off, the inside case is oaked in blaack oil (is Oil from the trans Mixed with belt material me thinks). Is the main seal behind the back clutch drum leaking I think in my case.
