I'm new to the forum and have recently purchased a 19 Prowler Pro. What sold me was the 3 cylinder super quiet engine. I am not familiar with Arctic Cat but I am coming from a Polaris EV to this machine. So far so good. Noticeable attributes of the Prowler Pro are its quietness, lack of rattles and noises, super roomy interior space(leg room, middle seat room, etc), comfortable seats, and did I mention quietness? I only have put about 20 miles on it so far but would love to hear from other owners of this machine. I know its new but seems to do some things really well. Anyone else own one or have opinions of the Prowler Pro?
Shifting is a problem.

To be honest, my shifting problems progressively went away after continuous use. I'm guessing that something with the clutch is too tight from the factory, and gets better with wear. Mine hasn't given me any trouble in quite a while, and the only wish I have now is that it had power steering.

Hard shifting is due to the team clutch binding/sticking, and not releasing the belt.
Shutting off the machine will allow you to shift without breaking the shifter, or cable, until the dealer can replace your clutch under warranty.

I have a question. Put my 10hrs in on my prowler pro did the break in oil change but now I have a ticking noise. Sounds like maybe the valves at idle. Is this normal or should I take it to the shop?

If it’s under warranty take it in.

I have been experiencing the same issues shifting gears with my PP XT.
Problem started early - notified the dealer well within warranty period - got no love back from Textron/Arctic Cat.
I've broken 2 shift linkage cables in the 2 years I've owned my machine (only 30 miles and not a lot of hours).
Dealer replaced the cable both times at no charge, but that doesn't address the underlying problem.
I use my PP primarily for snow plowing in the winter, but it is a work horse for me in many ways.
Thanks to the information in this forum, I've renewed my push with the dealer and Textron/Arctic Cat to get the problem resolved.
Is there an actual Service Bulletin or Recall that I can reference to help my push with the factory?
I love the machine except for the shifting issues.

I have a 2020 PP. No shifting issues, always change gears while at a complete stop with my foot on the brake.
WHAT MY ISSUE IS, I HAVE AN INTERMITTENT BUZZING WITH THE KEY OFF. IT IS COMING FROM THE ENGINE UPPER END. IT CAN DO IT WITHIN MINUTES OF TURNING IT OFF OR WHEN I WALK PAST IT THE NEXT DAY... ANYBODY ELSE HAVE THIS ISSUE?

I am having multiple problems and Arctic Cat Textron has avoided responding after multiple calls until the warranty expired. Now they will communicate, to tell me it's out of warranty. To many problems to list.

How do you like your Prowler Pro?

I have the sand shifting problem. Did they fix your PP?
Arctic Cat ignored me until the machine was out of warranty. The box is cracking apart with 31 miles and 18.3 hours. The machine won't shift while running. The main header is rusted, when delivered. It makes rattling noises. The doors don't shut without major effort. The clutch is super jerky, so when backing it just surges. Someone from this or another forum supplied an email address for a representative who hasn't responded in days. Both the dealer and Arctic Cat made sure not to respond while the machine was under warranty. Now I have owned this machine and been begging to get it fixed since week two of ownership. I called Arctic Cat 4 times to resolve these issues and not once did a dealer or Arctic Cat make an appointment for repairs. Now I have to file legal action against Arctic Cat and the Dealer. I should have went with the Kawasaki.
