Looking for a new sled

I'm currently in the market for a new sled. Have been looking at the Arcticcat 800 snow pro and the Skidoo summit 800. Anyone have any input on these or any other new mountain sleds?

I've got an M8 ( 07, 08). Very fun! Like trucks though, brand wars happen. I've ridden the other 2 and I prefer the feel and handling of The cats.

Re: Looking for a new sled

I would say best new mountain sleds are the 13 Polaris pro rmk and skidoo summit.
I'm gonna pull the trigger on a new pro rmk 800 next week. I got a dealer to come $3000 off msrp. It will be a nice upgrade from my 06 skidoo summit 800

By xm Im guessing you mean a ski doo summit 163? I bought a 2012 ski doo renegade 137 with the 800 etec and I have no complaints. its not the fastest sled in the world but I bought it for playin in the powder and hill climbing (no big enough hills for a mountain sled in my area). Also I go 2-3 rides per fill up and my buddies that don't have ski doo etecs are usually filling up every ride. 340 problem free miles so far and about 90% of that is ditch and powder. Either way im pretty sure with any new sled your gonna get something reliable unless you manage to get a lemon. There is always a lemon out of the bunch and snowmobiles are just like cars and truck, everyone has their preference.
