    Talking Bought my new 2011 Arctic Cat Bearcat

    Watch out fish! I decided on an Arctic Cat Bearcat 570. Pick it up Saturday. I will be able to persue some different fishing grounds this winter.

    I don't think you will be disapointed. Congrats!

    We have a 2009 570 and do like it a lot. I am glad that we got a winch for it also as it can be a 'bear' when stuck.
    Have fun with your 'new' toy.

    I hope you have better luck with the electric start and cold weather issues with the starter than most. Myself included. Arctic cat really needs to do a re-call on them.

    Ditto! I've got a 2010 and love it. No issues starting and can really haul a load and it rides nice.

    Not real impressed with the electronic reverse, (stops the engine and then starts it running backwards) but it works.

    Also agree with the winch point. I had one put on the front of mine and I'm really glad I did, I'm not getting younger and these machines are getting heavier. In fact I just added wiring so I can run the winch from rear receiver as well as the front.

    Have fun!

    I put 1200 mi on my 2011 with no problems. The electric start even worked at -40. I was impressed

    Realy love mine 2010 570 fan I love the reverse just push the button... The older mods had a big leaver you had to pull and they worked like S*** i hated mine on the 2008.. I do need to get the winch i have had the priv, of getting her stuck lol. I did have mine studded with woody's studs what a great improvement on pulling a load and on ice and overflow....
