It may be remembered as the snowmobile that “Tucker Hibbert built” but the new Sno-Pro 500, fully based on Cat’s highly successful snocross chassis, will be targeted at hardcore trail riders and also at those who wish to enter a stock-based sled in cross country racing.
Its off-the-shelf 500 EFI pipe sensor mill is a time-proven bastion of reliability and will launch this new production chassis with the security that consumers will be getting the utmost in reliability.
Perhaps bigger news is Cat’s focus on delivering a top performer in the 800 2-stroke class for both the F-Chassis and the Crossfire.
The former 800 mill has been completely redesigned and sports a much lighter crankshaft, new pistons and rods and a completely re-mapped EFI system with new fuel injectors and even changes to the cooling system.
Cat tells us the engine makes an honest 155hp and, after riding it, we have no doubt this is an accurate claim. The engine EPA certifies and uses a pipe sensor to control emissions.
