Krom, you may be able to answer this best, but just wondering if anyone has heard any build dates yet on sleds that have been ordered?
I know cat showed racks with engines on them, but were they for the testing/demo's units or production run?? So far I only received a partial serial number that was on the order form.

yep using tap-a-talk from the cellular device. go figure

I'm just curious of build dates as to whether they take their time and figure them out or throw them together.

Mine in already

I ordered an xf 8000 on the last day for snow check and I got a call from my dealer saying that they recieved 15 xf's and mine was one of them on 6/05/13. So depending on your model, it may already be done. I sure as hell hope that they just didn't throw them together! :Bangin:

Krom, thanks for the updated list.

Are they shipping the XF 8000s without clutches? I thought the clutch update was not showing until mid July.

ZR 7000 le 11/6
ZR 8000 LE 6/21
ZR 9000 6/18

XF 8000's have already arrived
XF 9000 137 6/28

Good, I was hoping they would take their time with the 6000 series.

I am curious as to why folks think there might be different build quality standards for different models.
Not thinking hoping!!!!

they take the a couple first run sleds and go ride them across the street from the factory. Sometimes they catch little things and make a running change during production. They are probably riding the 800 xfs now.

What update is coming for the '12's?? I will look around the site to see if it's posted. Was there a clutch problem? Recall???
No recall. Just an optional clutching update. For those sleds that have documented belt life issues, Cat will provide a driven clutch update potentially free of charge on a case by case basis.
