Sled: 04 t660 turbo & 09 Bearcat 570
ATV: arctic cat 400
2007 Mileage: 25
2006 Mileage: 200
Sold my turbo touring and am looking at a 2009 Bearcat 570 to play off-trail and in the mountains. Want any thoughts / info you may have on the machine.

Right now I can get a new 09 holdover with reverse for $6300.00. The 2010's have electronic reverse and save 8lbs in weigth and have a longer track than the 09's, but the price is much higher.

Any thoughts on the 570 performance? Gas mileage? Is it enough engine to pull the 144" sled around in the deep stuff? 8" skis are a BIG plus on the Bearcat so flotation should be decent.

Won't do much work with the sled, just some opff-trail boondocking looking for moose antlers, etc..

Any info would be great.

I've got a 2009 BC 570 XT. It goes slow real well, it goes fast real well. But the transition between the two really sucks. The dealer has tried to help with changing clutch springs, but Arctic Cat doesn't seem to care......

I know the 570 has a different spring and a narrower track, maybe it goes better. But the 570 XT is pretty doggy right in the middle of the range I do a lot of off trail riding at.

Its a little different, but My wife has an 08 F570. We find its an ok machine for her, but its not very quick. Top end is ok, but it takes a long time to get there. The mechanical reverse sucks. Its cumbersome to use, and grinds and not to smooth to operate. Otherwise, the sled is reliable, but I would try for a larger engine on a touring sled.

Thanks guys. Sounds like the 570 is a real dog-then. Hmmmm, decisions, decisions. Maybe I'll wait a year and see if AC puts a 600 laydown liquid in the Bearcat Chasis. That would be a good move in my opinion.

Rich0807:
Am curious which dealer in Maine has been servicing your sled? I am not happy with my local dealer and am looking at 2 others. One is @ 35 mile drive, the other is @ 70 mile drive.

Where do you ride?

Colby's in S. Paris has been servicing. He's a small one man band, but he's been OK.
