Aka dont buy any of the chinesium trash at bass pro or cabelas. Those things are overpriced shitboxes. Shame Tracker put their name on them
Tracker didn't put their name on them. Bass Pro/Cabelas made a deal with Textron to private label the Arctic Cat (made and owned by Textron) as their own Tracker brand.

The ones you need to watch are the homedepot/Lowe’s/etc off branded stuff.


I researched them a lot when looking and the main issues seemed to be parts availability as mentioned earlier in the thread. They aren’t necessarily garbage out the door (though many are pretty underpowered) but if ANYTHING breaks, aside from an off the shelf bearing going out, you’re screwed.

somewhere.....East Texas.
A lot of the Chinese ATV's and such, are knock-offs, and are not anywhere as good as the models they are copying. As mentioned, there is a huge disconnect between the consumer and the factory support if something fails and needs to be replaced, because there essentially isn't any support in being able to get parts.

Most people buy them because they are cheaper that the big brands. You get what you pay for. Check out Craigslist and you will see people trying to dump them all the time. Trying to recoup some of their money.

Best advice I can give on the Chinese equipment, steer clear of it.

Textron also owns Polaris!
My 2010 550 H1 Arctic Cat ATV has always been a great machine. It will foul a plug every now and then, but that's mainly from setting unused for long periods.
