Ok guys, remember when this board started out and people were complaining about Cat's added weight to the F-series sleds? Well, looks like Cat wasn't the only manufacturer that put on some off-season pounds! Here are the pages from the Feb 2003 issue of Snow Goer Magazine! I got my issue in the mail yesterday and I thought I would pass along some of the offical weighs of the main models of all 4 main manufactures...

Snopro model is pound for pound with the REV 800.

I don't subscribe to SnoGoer, but I'm definately going to pick up an issue for this article.

(I often buy the issues from the stand.)

Thanks.

Looks like Cat and Poo were once again the most truthful in their estimated weights, except for the Poo mountain sleds. I'm surprised to see those off by so much. Why didn't they way any Cat powder sleds?

Most truthful!??? Don't think so, they were all wrong! Shows that they all need to weigh the darn things before they leave the factory, not as the concept sled rolls off!

Some of those weights dont add up. I think there scale had a little bit of help on some of the weights. Just look at the weight difference between the F-5 and F-7. Somethings amiss. I like how Supertrax weighs the sleds. Fully fueled and oiled. You don't ride on an empty tank do you?

Is there such thing as a correct scale? I think these will be the best bet for weights! I guess if you are still in doubt, have your own sled weighed.
As the old saying goes, "Don't believe it, 'till I see it!"

All the weights aside.....................................
I have read alot of opinions about the F5 and F7 on this board.
But one thing I have yet to read is. "IT'S TOO SLOW AND TOO HEAVY"
So Kudo's to Cat for beafing up what they needed to, and for putting out a fantastic sled.
