Oh no! If they put the WR3 on a 3000 Bearcat I might have to trade mine in!!!!!

The 3000 won't need it. It's still a "small" footprint track.

I have found myself pulling a bogan full of wood in twisty trails where a low gear would of been great.

There is also one night where I was grooming the trails and the snow was just soak wet and the belt burn a nice black ring on the clutch sheaves...

One thing I like about these sleds with the clutching is the ability to adjust the Secondary sheave to prevent burnishing clutches and your belt. Check your belt ride height in the secondary and adjust if needed.

I can see the twin spar being eliminated, a little disappointing as it's known to be a more comfortable drive than the proute chassis.

I would like to see the new 800 ctec or 600 ctec 2 stroke added to the bearcat line up to compete with the Skidoo utilitity sleds. Arctic Cat always been known for industry leading power, they have fell behind in the utility section not having 2 stroke power.

Ski do has a wide 156in track skandic powered by a 600 four stroke so its possible. I dont think utility sleds are ment to be ridden over 40. I have a skandic 500 wt, a club groomer and i never even go over 35 with it. When your woeking which utility sleds are for your not cruising...

I just pulled a 280 lb sleigh 90 miles and burnt 54 litres of fuel with my 2016 570 xt to my T660's 26 litres pulling a 300 lb camper. Really soft snow and temps around 6c.
