How'd the steering effort compare to an Apex w/ EPS?

Thanks,

I love it. It does everything better; ride, hook up, stability and flotation. No steering effort at all. I have zero complaints with this sled. Cat built a great chassis powered by the best engine manufacturer in the business

Where did you come up with this weight? I guy weighed his sled while taking a video of it and it came in at 615 all fluids in and 2 gallons of gas in the tank. Gas weighs about 5lb/gal so all topped off it wouldn't be any more than 655lbs with a full tank. That is 95lbs less than what you state....
