This machine separates itself from the standard M8000 in deeper, softer snow conditions. The shallower approach angle provided by the lower drive shaft, 8 tooth drivers and 3” track help propel the machine on top of the snow quickly. We noticed it didn’t trench as easily which ultimately results in fewer ski pulls during the day. Momentum was less of a factor in technical situations which made this machine easier to ride.
The Power Claw 3” track is extremely versatile and works well in a variety of conditions. We feel most deep snow mountain riders will prefer this track over the 2.6” version. This track likes the dry light powder of the Intermountain West yet works surprisingly well in packed or heavier conditions. The narrower running board and belly pan are also a significant improvement. We noticed considerably less drag in off camber or steep conditions. The machine requires less momentum to initiate off camber maneuvers and is more forgiving to rider error or throttle mistakes which often results in a stuck situation. Riders lucky enough to get their hands of one of these gems this winter are sure to be impressed, even if we are still running a tried and true engine package in the Suzuki 800. Despite anticipation for a replacement, this engine remains a solid performer and accepts power mods extremely well with continued reliability.
