Sled: 2014 ZR 7000 LIMITED
i think its a poor name as far as branding and was an established and known brand. If i ask anyone who textron is they dont know or say an oil company....or they do know and its about how they almost ruined polaris 30 some years ago.

Im glad they say they are going to leave sleds alone, but who knows.....i cant see them pulling out of sleds tho as they have made huge market gains and improvements and are making some strong products...and well if cat stopped i feel yamaha would be done as well considering they have no chassis without cat right now.

Guess time will tell

If cat doesn't prove to be a seller and doesn't move the needle in the market, I could see Textron pulling the pin, as to guys that are saying that the Textron name doesn't mean anything, and or doesn't ring a bell, down south in the UTV market, everyone who rides down there knows who Textron is.

Textron has some huge contracts with the goverment and DOD as well, my father who works for the DOD has a sneeking suspicion that they as in Textron will be trying to get into the UTV game with the government for the special forces vehicles and other things that the government uses UTVS for. Polaris holds that contract currently, and is doing well with it, however with Textron holding other contracts they have the leg up on the table when push comes to shove.

I'd hate to see Cat go away in snowmobiles, but I have to be honest, I wouldn't be one bit shocked. It's all about the profit and the dollar.
