Arctic Cat 550 H1 Quad

Arctic Cat 550 H1 Quad

The 550 H1 quad is powered by Arctic Cat's own 545cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine. An automatic transmission features two- and four-wheel drive and a front locking differential. A simple handlebar switch selects two- or four-wheel drive, and an electronic rocker switch on the instrument pod activates the front differential. A redesigned seat is mounted one inch lower to reduce the rider's center of gravity. A 2-inch automotive style receiver hitch makes towing handy, and front and rear fender racks can carry a combined 300 pounds of cargo.

Introduced in 2008, the Prowler XTX 700 H1 returns in 2009 with a 695cc single-cylinder, four-stroke engine with electronic fuel injection. An automatic transmission with two-wheel and four-wheel drive modes easily changes with the flip of a switch. A reverse override button on the center console allows for quicker reverse speeds. In the cab, dual bucket seats greet the driver and passenger. The Prowler also features dual 12-volt accessory outlets in the dashboard, a glove box, digital instrumentation with 14 different indicators and easy-to-reach controls. For long days hunting, the Prowler has a large under-hood storage compartment that can hold 25 pounds of gear. It doubles as a cooler. Additional storage and hauling capabilities are found in the fully composite rear cargo box with a 600-pound capacity. The Prowler has a 2-inch automotive-type receiver hitch and is rated for a 1,500-pound towing capacity.
