2018 Arctic Cat® M 8000 SNO PRO 3.0 (153) Features may include:
- NEW ASCENDER PLATFORM WITH NEXT-GEN MOUNTAIN BODY PANELS
The Ascender platform brings a whole new way to attack the mountain. Running boards are 1 in. narrower than previous designs and the overall profile is 10% narrower for improved side-hill performance, improved venting and ease of laying the sled over in deep snow. The revised bellypan shape allows the rider’s feet to move 2 inches further forward for even greater ergonomic options for riding. The drive shaft dropped 1.125 inches allows for a 9.7º lowered approach angle providing more maneuverability and the ability to get up and stay up on the snow. Improved fit and finish with easy on/off one-piece body panels allow easy access to the engine compartment and brings a distinctive Arctic Cat styling.
- 8000 C-TEC2 ENGINE WITH DSI
Introducing the most efficient and responsive 8000 engine from Arctic Cat. Fresh from our plant in St. Cloud, Minnesota, this 2-stroke engine features noticeably faster throttle response and acceleration compared with our previous 800, plus up to 30% reduction in oil consumption below 7000 rpm, 36% increase in low-end torque and 18% increase in midrange torque. Delivering a rare combination of increased power, reduced emissions, and ultra-low oil consumption, the overall crispness sets new standards for performance and rideability in the 160-hp class.
- 1.125" DROPPED DRIVESHAFT
Like the 2017 Mountain Cat, this 2018 M 8000 Sno Pro is fitted with the 1.125" dropped driveshaft. The increased track-to-tunnel clearance of 3" allows us to use 8-tooth drive sprockets on this model, giving you a flatter approach angle with more floatability and maneuverability. In addition, you’ll also notice a huge difference in your sled handling. This update delivers a more efficient power transfer to the snow, letting you enjoy more horsepower when climbing, carving, sidehilling and boondocking.
- ARCTIC MOUNTAIN FRONT SUSPENSION WITH FOX FLOAT 3 SHOCKS
Lightweight, forged-aluminum spindles have less surface area than the previous design, reducing drag and improving performance in deep snow. Also, dual-phase high strength alloy-steel A-arms are lighter than previous designs. FOX FLOAT 3 air shocks are improved for 2018 with improved ride and handling with more supple compression in the initial stroke travel thanks to increased volume on the ski shocks via a new body cap and shorter negative spring.
- FLOAT-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION WITH FRONT ARCTIC CAT IFP AND REAR FOX FLOAT 3
Thanks to increased shock length from 16 in. to 17 in. on the rear arm shock, the FOX FLOAT 3 air shock provides smother compression in the initial stroke travel. The FLOAT-ACTION rear suspension’s uni
