We purchased our machine the end of October 2009 its main purpose is for cruising 2up and pulling a small caravan. we can only pull 192 kg legally on the road. The maximum top speed we have achieved is 42 miles an hour providing the wind isn't blowing. Fuel economy is very good the machine doesn't like hills because of the ongoing problems with the quad we have yet to try towing .my quad is presently back with the suppliers yet again the headstock has come loose. The vibration from the thumb throttle sends your hand numb your backside goes...to sleep after 20 miles. This machine was never built for comfort. We had a thumb Warmer fitted which takes the skin of you thumb. I asked the dealer for a twist grip throttle to be fitted. Apparently this is not possible with the diesel as there has to be play in the cable. A 7 pin trailer plug is an extra which is rather stupid considering the quad is supplied with a towhitch . The extras for this quad are extremely expensive and you can source the same part from other companies for half the money. My wife and I have found the Arctic cat can become unstable when in the region of 42 miles an hour which is rather worrying. We have never taken this quad off road perhaps thats all its really designed for. I find its performance and handling very dismal. If the American army have purchased this model by the time they get to the battle it will be over. The fuel economy is excellent Does not like starting in cold weather,
