Sounds like we have a lot of new people in the Cat camp due to the Firecat. Vote and tell us what you were riding and why you switched...Marc

Been a hardcore Polaris rider my whole career. I have a '01 600 xcsp. Traded in the wife's 600 xlt for the F5. Polaris xc5 model was 3 years outdated, and fcat was cutting edge. Hope we finally get some snow to justify my purchase.

Switched over from my trusty 98' XC 6 SP to an F7. Saw it in the brochure and had to have it. Power to weight sold it. Would have bought anything with that ratio though. I'm not brand loyal. I'm service loyal!

Was raised on Cat, and rode a '95 EXT followed by a '96 EXT Deluxe. Moved to the ZR chassis with my '00 ZR500 (efi) which had to be replaced by the new F7. TALK ABOUT A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE!!! WOOHOO :D B)

LOVE IT :wub:
