Thank you!
I've had many 600 ace machines and I liked them for the quiet and smooth driving. The only thing I did not like about them is the low horse power when I needed it! Especially in loose snow conditions.

I've test drived the new Lt 3000 a little bit. I tried to drive it in loose snow conditions also and it could be my imagination but to me it seemed like there was a little bit more horsepower than the 600 ace. Apart from that I was surprised by it's smooth and quiet operation, maybe even better than the 600 ace. It seemed ease to handle and steer and if I would have the choice between a 600 ace machine and the Lt 3000 I would have chosen the Lt 3000 today.

Ofcourse I've not had the chance to drive the Lt 3000 a hole season to test it abilities...

I was in the same situation as you. The Bearcat seemed like the best replacement for my 07 Phazer but I couldn't find much about it.
Most of the video's I found were on Facebook in Sweden and Norway, so translation was a bit of a problem.

But after I saw the video where this sled is pulling 7 kids on sleds behind it, without a problem, noise or smoke, my mind was made up.

I am picking it up tomorrow, dealer had some great deals at this time of the year.

I was able to put a couple miles on the Bearcat this morning.

I cant believe how quiet this engine is.
Torque is very similar to what I had on the Phazer, but once past 30 mph the power remains linear.
The chassis is great, turns easily, very stable and comfortable.
Once we get more snow I will be able to review its ability to handle deeper snow. Cant wait!

Well I managed 91kms after I saw the groomer in the trails Monday night.
- Trails were still ruff so I was able to test the stability of the Bearcat. Which was impressive. Even with the narrow ski stance, it felt planted, soaked up the bumps easily and remained planted. Keep in mind it is still within break in, so speeds were kept around 50km/h.
- Seats is comfortable but it took some adjusting since I am used to straddle the tank and being 6'2 I cannot do this on this sled without bruising my knees, so a more relaxed seating position is necessary.
- I could not believe how warm my feet stayed the whole time. I have fought frozen feet for years on my Phazer. This is not an issue on the Procross platform.
- Engine ran well, stayed cool and sipped fuel as expected.
- Hand warmers work well, but the thumb warmer is weak.

Overall its was a great ride and I am looking forward to many more.

Hey.
Yesterday I received the new test drive bearcat 3000 LT. sled had a really good feel. The driving position was suitable for me. And good maneuverability.
I'm thinking that I change my Ski-doo renegade backcoutry X 600 e-tec 2014.
Bearcat is one of the strongest candidate for replacement, or BRP Lynx Xtrim SC 600 e-tec 2017?

What is the fuel consumption in liters per 100 kilometers?
Does 14L / 100 km?

I will make a few more runs and then re-fill. Then I will be able to calculate the L/100km.

I filled it up before the last 90km ride and the gauge only went down about a quarter.
