How much horsepower does an Arctic Cat Alpha One have?
Enhanced power in the 165-hp class of engines. Precision oil injection. Exceedingly robust and lightweight design. OPTIMIZED FOR DEEP SNOW – AMS FRONT SUSPENSION: The Arctic Mountain Suspension (AMS) is built specifically to navigate through deep snow.
BilletX startades ur ett enormt snöskoter intresse, efter många och långa kvällar/nätter vid våra svarvar och fräsmaskiner bestämde vi oss för att satsa stenhårt på dessa special produkter till snöskotrar mm. Vi lanserade våra produkter till allmänheten lagom till snöskoternsdag 2009. Då vi nu tillverkar serier så kan vi nu erbjuda våra nya och gamla kunder bättre priser och leveranstider.Då Alpha One gått som smör i solsken är det också den modellen man satsar på till 2020, och tvärt emot vad vi trodde kommer det ingen M-modell med 600:a motorn! Det är 800:or rakt över hela linjen, det är väl den som säljer helt enkelt. I USA kommer Alpha One i tre olika skepnader och två olika längder, M 8000 Alpha One (154/165) 3.0 med lite enklare utrustning och dämpare, M 8000 Hardcore Alpha One (154/165) 3.0 med den tuffaste set-upen och M 8000 Mountain Cat Alpha One (154/165) 3.0 med med FOX Float QS3-L-dämpare och lite lyx. Man har även passat på att skrota rutan och har nu bara en liten liten skärm. Det verkar även som att man har uppdaterat 800-motorn ytterligare till 2020 med bland annat nya cylindrar, kolvar, topp och ny mappning av bränslet för ytterligare effekt och bränsleekonomi.

Konstigt nog är det sportsegmentet som är det största!? Thundercat finns kvar med och utan iACT, där man verkar ha lagt till två ny inställningsmöjligheter med personligt förvalda inställningar av dämparna, Driver 1 och Driver 2. Sedan har vi ZR 6000 Sno Pro och ZR 6-8000 LTD-modeller toppat med värstingen RR som 800:a. Vi hittar även en cross-country racing-skoter med 600:a vid namn ZR6000 R XC i det stora utbudet av sportskotrar!

Where was the first Arctic Cat snowmobile made?
Thief River Falls Minnesota In 1960 in a garage in Thief River Falls Minnesota Edgar Hetteen made the first Arctic Cat snowmobile after departing from his original start up company, Polaris Industries.
Medan konkurrenterna ökar sina utbud av skotermodeller gör Arctic Cat helt tvärtom och minskar sitt utbud! I USA säger man att man har 35 modeller om man räknar med alla olika motorer och utrustningsnivåer, men i själva verket rör det sig kanske om ett 10-tal modeller. För oss gör detta kanske inte så mycket då Arctic Sverige ändå alltid väljer ut vissa modeller och vi har ändå aldrig haft alla modeller här. Till exempel finns det bara en Bearcat till 2020 och det är 2000 XT och ingen touringmaskin typ Pantera. Hela poängen måste vara att man vill tömma det som finns kvar från tidigare år, vilket i slutändan kan hjälpa handlarna. Detta låter faktiskt klokt, för har man tillräckligt många maskiner kvar att mätta marknaden ett år till känns det dumt att tillverka nya skotrar om det inte kommit några nyheter, eller hur!? Någon Norseman finns inte heller i staterna, men du kan lugna ner dig då den däremot kommer till oss här i Norden!Inget mer gissningsarbete med ATAC. Med detta system kan du justera din fjädring med ett klick på en knapp på styret. När terrängen plötsligt ändras kan du anpassa din fjädring lika snabbt. Tillgänglig i flera modellutföranden.

When did Arctic Cat stop using Suzuki engines?
Arctic Cat announced in June 2010 that it would stop buying snowmobile engines from Suzuki at the end of 2013 and move the manufacturing to its plant in St. Cloud.
Med uppvärmda säten och plats för två personer, är Pantera byggd för en lyxigt delad färd. men låt inte den bekväma designen lura dig. 1049 cc fyrtaktsmotorn erbjuder mer än tillräcklig effekt för att du ska kunna så mycket du vill.Den helt nya CATALYST-plattformen är redo att ändra sättet du ser på snöskotrar. Detta revolutionerande chassi är byggt från grunden och har oöverträffade viktminskningar för lössnö-, crossover- och ledmaskiner, samt omdefinierad ergonomi och en omkalibrerad fjädring. Förbättringarna slutar inte där. Utforska det som särskiljer CATALYST.

Lås berg med ALFABETISKEN EN upp Singel-Strålar bakre upphängning. Med sin monorail-design upplever du enkla svängar, med skärning och sidolut. Tillgänglig på alla lössnömodeller och Riot X.The relationship has paid off for Suzuki, including $57 million in buybacks and dividends plus $1 billion in sales of engines and parts over the past decade. Arctic officials said this played well as it negotiated what analysts viewed as highly favorable terms of the share repurchase deal.

Suzuki will continue to supply engine parts beyond 2013, Arctic officials said Wednesday. A Suzuki representative resigned from Arctic Cat’s board, effective immediately, and was not expected to be replaced. Arctic Cat, based in Plymouth, designs, engineers, manufactures and markets snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles, as well as related parts, garments and accessories. ”Arctic Cat survived a very difficult environment for consumer discretionary products,” Kennison said. ”They’ve been building a balance sheet to handle this for some time.”

The $79.3 million cash deal for approximately 6.1 million shares of Class B stock pleased investors, who drove Arctic Cat’s share price to its highest single-day gain since March 2009. Shares closed at $22.93, up nearly 21 percent.
Since taking over at Arctic Cat at the beginning of this year, CEO Claude Jordan has focused on building a company with a strong balance sheet that can more quickly adapt to consumer preferences, Kennison said.

Arctic Cat Inc. said Wednesday that it has bought back all of its stock from Japanese engine maker Suzuki Motor Corp., ending a shareholder relationship that goes back more than two decades.
”As Arctic Cat tries to become a more innovative company, operationally they’ve been moving apart,” said analyst Craig Kennison, of Robert W. Baird and Co. in Milwaukee. ”Financially they’re now also severing some of those ties.”

Who makes Arctic Cat engines?
Arctic Cat became a part of Textron in 2017.
Bringing the engine manufacturing work back to Minnesota won’t affect profit margins much, but building closer to home is a key part of Arctic Cat’s strategy, Jordan reiterated in a morning call to investors.The company posted strong second-quarter earnings in October and increased its guidance for the year based on better-than-expected sales of snowmobiles. It has virtually no debt and an untapped $60 million credit line.

The company’s move to buy out its longtime supplier was not entirely unexpected. Arctic Cat announced in June 2010 that it would stop buying snowmobile engines from Suzuki at the end of 2013 and move the manufacturing to its plant in St. Cloud.
”The biggest advantage … is the fact that we’ll be able to control our own destiny,” Jordan said. ”If there are specific snowmobile engines, certain directions we want to go, this gives us flexibility to produce and manufacture those engines in-house and allows us to go into new spaces.”

Suzuki has supplied engines for Arctic Cat since 1976. It became a major shareholder in June 1988, paying $12.8 million for a 33 percent stake in the company, then known as Arctco. At the time, Arctco had just rebuffed a $25 million acquisition offer from Medina-based rival Polaris.

Is Arctic Cat made by Polaris?
Polaris Industries was originally founded by David Johnson and brothers Edgar and Alan Heteen. In 1960, Edgar Heteen separated from the company and went on to found Arctic Enterprises, later known as Arctic Cat. Coincidentally, the manufacturer Textron would acquire Polaris in 1968 and later Arctic Cat in 2017.
M 8000 Mountain Cat är aningen tyngre än sitt syskon Hardcore Alpha, men mera jämbördig Mountain Cat Alpha. Det beror på att de två Mountain Cat-modellerna är utrustade med elstart och en större tunnelkylare. Den extra vikten ger dock inte bara nackdelar.

How much does the 2023 Alpha One weight?
The 2023 Arctic Cat M 8000 Mountain Cat Alpha One 165 3.0 Snowmobile weighs 466 lbs which is 3.76% more than other Mountain models.
Sammanfattningsvis kan vi konstatera att en monorail klyvts på mitten för att återuppstå som en gammal klassiker med vanlig boggie. En maskin för den som gärna och ofta klättrar i metervis med lössnö. Som i nästa sekund kopplar på pulkan bakom skotern och drar med sig familjen ut på en långstyrning eller grillsväng, och visst är det härligt att kunna välja mellan vanlig boggie eller monorail. Nu har Arctic Cat verkligen gett sina konsumenter fler valmöjligheter.

Vill man till exempel kunna dra något efter skotern så underlättar det med den stora kylaren som Mountain caten har. Sen är det aldrig fel att kunna vrida om nyckeln istället för att slita i startsnöret, speciellt om man står i konstig lutning eller om man har slut på krafter efter en svettig fastkörning.
Med tre klick på dämparen ändrar man mellan soft, medium eller hard, detta på några få sekunder. Den bakre boggiedämparen har även en lock-funktion. Den, likt en kopplad boggie, håller emot svingen så att skidorna får bättre kontakt med marken. På så sätt blir det enklare att hålla ner gasreglaget under sin färd upp för branta stigningar. Skulle man mot förmodan köra på något så har stötdämparen en backventil för att inte explodera i låst läge. Otroligt effektivt att vrida om på lock när det kommer till branta klättringar.Körmässigt hittar vi hem väldigt snabbt på Arctic Cat M 8000 Mountain Cat. Den hittar inte på några dumheter utan man finner sig ganska direkt bakom spakarna. Ute i snön är den busig, rapp och följsam. Fjolårets uppdatering av motorn för att hålla jämna steg med sina konkurrenters mera kubikstinna motorer finns tyvärr inte i denna. Men gassvaret och motorgången är tillräcklig.

Kamhöjden på M 8000 Mountain Cat är aningen lägre än de värsta lössnömonstren på marknaden. Den har en kamhöjd på 66mm. Bettet i den välkända Powerclawmattan är det inget fel på, varken i lössnö eller när snön hårdnar. De lägre kammarna ger en högre mattrotation och bygger mer fart, men blir en aning lidande i den allra mest bottenlösa snön i jämfört med den högre kamhöjden.
Vi tar en närmare titt på framvagnen. Arctic cat M 8000 Mountain Cat har en justerbar framvagn, som i sitt smalaste läge mäter in på 35,5 tum och i sitt bredaste 37,5 tum. Den är inställd på smalaste läget då vi testar den. Detta gör den även smalast i klassen. Maskinen känns från början lite vinglig, vilket lovar gott. Smidighet går många gånger hand i hand med en ”vinglig” maskin och här är det upp till piloten att lära sig handskas med balansen. Stötdämparna som sitter runt om är de välbeprövade Fox Qs3:orna. Även nu får vi imponeras över Atac fjärdingen när vi gräver oss fram på rullen i den djupa snön och samtidigt klickar i “firm”. Maskinen kliver upp på snön och flyter ovanpå istället för att leta sig ner till botten. Och allt detta på ett ögonblick! Att ha justeringen på styret gör att man verkligen använder möjligheterna till det när det är så busenkelt att byta mellan de olika lägena. Efter julstöket var över fick vi tillslut nog med snö för Mountain Caten att göra debut. Det blir en lugnare färd för att undvika de klassiska försäsongskadorna med krokiga a-armar och övriga skavanker. Vi bränner av några inkörningsmil för maskin och förare efter leden och passar även på att testa foxarna med Atac fjädringens färdigheter. Vilken skillnad en riktig dämparsetup gör! Maskinen känns pålitlig och ligger trots sin smala framvagn på 35,5 tum stadigt på den fina leden. Man kan tänka att det kanske borde vara lite vingligt med monorailen men det är inget jag kände av under denna tur. Kan det förutom dämparna vara Powerclaw mattan med 66 mm kammar som hjälper till och ändå ger ett bra bett i snön?

Trots det känner jag mig redan löjligt nöjd över denna maskin! Jag förvånas över hur naturligt det kändes att kliva över på ett märke jag aldrig tidigare kört och kortare maskin än jag någonsin haft. Efter ytterligare några dagars snöande stämplar vi ut från jobbet fortast kvickt, slänger i oss middagen, kopplar på hjälmlampan och beger oss ut. Jag märker snabbt nu när det är mer snö att med en 146″ måste man hålla uppe farten på ett helt annat sätt än 154″, planera sin körning och inte släppa av på gasen på fel ställen.
Något annat vi märker när vi svischar fram efter leden är att man sitter väldigt bekvämt på dynan men det är nog tyvärr enda fördelen med den. Ja för dynan är av modell större, både hög och lång vilket gör att när man ex gör en pudersväng eller ska luta sig från sida till sida så trycks benen ut av den höga dynan och man blir begränsad i sin rörlighet samt tappar fotfästet på fotsteget.Så nu är det bara att lägga på körtimmarna så våran Mountain Cat får visa upp sin fulla potential och vi får testa på hur alla dessa egenskaper ter sig i skogsterräng, drivor, olika fören och förhållanden. Säsongen är igång!

När vi ändå är inne på förbättringsområden kan vi nämna en annan sak vi upptäckte ganska omgående och det är fotstegen. De släpper inte igenom snön som man önskar vilket gör att det byggs upp snö och is på fotsteget som även där gör att man tappar fotfästet och det lätt blir en extra flygtur eller fastkörning.
Vi viker av leden och letar oss ut i det nyfallna pudret, fjäderlätt och gnistrande. Det räcker att trycka med fötterna på fotstegen så surfar du fram och maskinen känns väldigt lättkörd. Det finns risk att överarbeta skotern i sidled innan man vant sig vid monorailens smidiga egenskaper. Jag ser med spänning fram emot att få köra i brantare skogsterräng där jag tror det kan bli till en fördel att kunna styra mer med kroppsvikten på fotstegen utan att behöva flytta över helt på ena fotsteget alla gånger.Because you’re a rider of competitive nature looking to best everyone in the backcountry with the ultimate in maneuverability – Buying an M 8000 means not having to make a single compromise. M 8000 HARDCORE – Has a moderately aggressive ALPHA-ONE rear suspension calibration with manually activated FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3 COIL-OVER ski shocks and equally calibrated FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3 COIL-OVER front- and FOX 1.5 ZERO QSL COIL-OVER rear-track shocks. The L stands for Lock – A manually switchable setting, locking your rear shock for optimum deep snow flotation. All M 8000s are centered around the revolutionary ALPHA- ONE single-beam rear suspension system with choices of a 2.6- or 3-in. lug Powerclaw track. Opt for one of three skidframe lengths – 146- or 154- and 165-in. With maximum track side flex, riders can maneuver the Alpha One to a degree not possible with conventional snowmobiles.

On ZR 6000 side there are 3 variants (ZR 6000 and RXC with ES or Non-ES) Why so few? Varying reasons…137 is a skid frame length best suited for trails (why have more length options?), 600s in general have far lower sales than 800s, mix in some supply chain obstacles for the 6000 and you land at your availability options.
It is year round employment at Cat because they build ATV’s, Side x Sides and sleds are being built almost year round now as well. Cat is planning on hiring up to 500 more workers as welll.

And those looking for the ultimate level of premium rider performance can opt for the ATAC adjust on-the-fly suspension system. The innovative ATAC utilizes a thumb-operated button on the left handlebar controls to operate the FOX FLOAT 3 iQS3 ski and FOX FLOAT 3 iQSL rear track shock. ATAC provides a huge rider advantage by allowing them to instantly switch between three factory compression settings (Soft, Medium and Firm), with two additional customizable calibration settings (Driver 1 and Driver 2).The 2023 M 8000 snowmobiles are the lightest and most capable mountain snowmobiles Arctic Cat makes. The playful nature of the ALPHA-ONE single beam rear suspension is their signature cornerstone backed by a powerful C-TEC2 engine and a variety of track lengths and lug height options. The Ascender platform starts with the lightweight Arctic Mountain Suspension (AMS) with mountain-specific spindles, geometry, G2 ProClimb-7 ski and a 35.5-in. to 37.5-in. stance for better side hilling, reduced drag in the snow and optimal handling. Kale, do you have any plans to do any interviews any time soon with any head honchos at cat. I think it was supertrax that had an interview with cat and Yamaha guys In 2017. But nothing that I’ve seen since. It would be nice to hear what’s going on what they have cooking behind closed doors, what the deal is with 120/200s and bro. Can you request a sit down, how does that work?
