Whoever made this decision is making a big mistake! People will buy a cat atv/ sxs but I doubt they'll sell more with Textron on the side.
Will Cat survive selling only sleds? And being #3 in sales? Is there any money in sleds only?

Seeing as this isn't turbo related I moved this to the Cat general discussion forum. Just remember boys ,,it's still a bash free zone so let's keep it on the up and up
