Best Utility Snowmobile

Yamaha VK540 IV
572 000

Need a great snowmobile for hunting? Take Yamaha Viking 540 - can not go wrong. The Yamahovskaya VK series is consistently at the top of sales of utilitarian snowmobiles. There are many reasons for this, and first of all it is reliability proved by time and operation in the most diverse conditions. On the “540th” model, an old acquaintance of brand lovers is used - a 535-cc two-stroke engine with air-cooling, powered by a single Mikuni carburetor. The engine is easily started in the cold both from an electric starter, and from a cable doubler.

An integral attribute of any utilitarian snowmobile is a transmission with downshift and reverse: turning around in a narrow place or pulling a sled with fish for a long time on the frozen reservoir for the fourth generation VK540 will not be a problem.

Main advantages:
  • Simple and maintainable design;
  • Reliable and unpretentious engine;
  • The broadest dealer and service network in Russia;
  • Heated handles as standard;
  • Comfortable long stroke suspension.
Minuses:
  • Relatively poor equipment (no tachometer, cylinder temperature sensors).

The best snowmobile for hunting, a real "workhorse". Simple as our "Taiga", but the reliability is simply not to compare.
Arctic Cat Bearcat 2000 XT
794 000

Equipping the cheapest utility model Arctic Cat can not be considered insufficient. Let's start traditionally with the engine: the snowmobile is driven by a two-cylinder two-stroke “air vent” with a working volume of 565 cm3. Thanks to the two Mikuni carburetors with 34mm diffusers, the motor not only has a good load, but does not choke at high speeds: if necessary, this 57-strong “utilitarian” can drive, as they say, “for all the money”.

Bearcat utilitarian advantages include a large cargo platform in the rear of the snowmobile, which can be further increased by removing the passenger seat, rail rail fastening which also serves as an eyelet for attaching luggage. If this is not enough, it is enough to attach a sled - the hitch is mounted on the snowmobile in the basic configuration. A long journey will not bring surprises with suddenly ended fuel - the volume of the fuel tank in Bearcat 2000 is a record 64 liters, and the fuel level indicator will always remind you of how much is left to date.

Main advantages:
  • Convenience in management.
  • Rich basic equipment.
  • Long stroke suspension.
  • Large cargo platform.
Minuses:
  • Re-complicated by the standards of utilitarian technology design.
  • High price.

The best snowmobile for long-distance hunting trips, and for "pokatushek for the soul." Suspension - almost off-road.
Lynx 59 Yeti 600 ACE
890 000

The Canadian Lynx in our rating is the first utilitarian snowmobile with a four-stroke engine. The Rotax 600 motor used here is very impressive with its characteristics: thanks to water cooling, it can work for a long time under difficult conditions, transport large loads without overheating. Electronic fuel injection makes it a record for efficiency - on its forty-liter tank Lynx will travel almost two times farther than the carburetor two-stroke. Do not forget that the resource of four-stroke engines is much higher than that of two-stroke engines - initially a large purchase price will be justified with long-term operation. Thanks to the dry-sump lubrication system, the engine does not suffer from oil starvation during abrupt maneuvers, rolls and overturning.

Transmission Lynx 59 Yeti is a variable, supplemented by a reverse and a reduction gear. Given the high torque of the four-stroke engine at low revs, the Canadian snowmobile is becoming a potential leader in the categories “Permeability” and “Cargo Transportation”. Reversing is facilitated by a “breakable” rear trolley design.

The suspension of the snowmobile is traditional for its class: there are telescopic shock absorbers at the front, and an adjustable torsion suspension with a 340 mm stroke at the back.

Thus, in the aggregate of all qualities, Lynx could become a confident leader in the ranking of the best utilitarian snowmobiles. Only the price let him down - for the same money, you can buy immediately the leader and outsider rating.

Main advantages:
  • The minimum fuel consumption (8 l / 100 km - for a snowmobile is very little).
  • Reliable and high-torque engine.
  • High throughput and maneuverability.
Minuses:
  • Too high price.

The Lynx snowmobile is a true all-rounder: it can take a sleigh for a long time and “burn out” on vacation. Excellent cross-country ability and, which is very important, economical: there are no gas stations in the middle of the field.
Yamaha Venture Multi Purpose
768 000

Multi-purpose snowmobile with a high-torque 500-cubic four-stroke engine. Compared to the purely utilitarian VK series, this snowmobile is also good for entertaining trips thanks to its comfortable fit and energy-intensive suspensions.

On the suspension should be noted: the front suspension is installed on two wishbones, providing 208 mm travel. This allows you to reduce shock and vibration transmitted to the steering wheel, compared with the telescopic suspension of skis common on public utility models. The back is a classic torsion "trolley" with a stroke of 313 mm and two gas-oil shock absorbers.

The variable-speed transmission has a reverse gearbox, but the downshift is deprived, which once again reminds of the greater focus of the snowmobile on recreational trips. But thanks to the economical four-stroke engine, the snowmobile can also be used to travel long distances, including with loaded sleds - the 36-liter fuel tank will last for a long time.

The only, but important “but” is the use of a 400-mm track on a snowmobile, which is why the snowmobile is prone to burying in loose snow. On the other hand, the purpose of a utilitarian snowmobile may be different: someone needs a simple “walktrack” for fishing trips, able to carry sleds with fish, someone has an affordable, but fast and maneuverable apparatus for driving winter hunting.

Main advantages:
  • Efficiency.
  • Adjustable steering wheel, comfortable fit.
  • Comfortable suspension.
Minuses:
  • It is not suitable for towing cargo and driving in loose snow.

The main advantage of this snowmobile is low fuel consumption. I have never once rolled out a full tank for a ride, although I usually leave far. The motor runs quietly, the beast does not scare.
Taiga Varyag 500
279 000

Rybinsk "Taiga" is still the cheapest utilitarian snowmobile of the domestic market. Her “heart” is a 500-cc two-stroke engine RMZ-500, equipped with a Mikuni carburetor. In our ranking of the best utilitarian snowmobiles, this one has the lowest power - 43 hp, and to ensure decent dynamics, the designers had to work on simplifying the design. As a result, "Varyag 500" lost weight to 265 kilograms. Alas, along with the excess weight, the snowmobile also lost an electric starter - only manual start-up.

Transmission of a snowmobile - a classic variator with mechanical inclusion of a lowering stage and reverse. Structurally, it is simple enough that for the Rybinsk technique that has not become the most outstanding reliability of the famous technology, it is a great advantage.

As for the suspension, compared to the leaders of the rating, it is not at all impressive. 105 mm of the stroke of the front telescopic shock absorbers and 190 mm of the stroke of the track are not so much: the suspension has to be made too rigid so that it does not pierce on a complex surface. To some extent, it saves the high steering wheel - the easiest way to escape from shaking is to get up in a cross rack on the steps.

Lost "Varyag 500" and in autonomy: the voracious engine RMZ-500 is forced to be content with a 40-liter gas tank.

Main advantages:
  • Affordable price.
  • Imported components: Mikuni carburetor, Ducati Energia ignition.
  • A good cross due to the 500-mm caterpillar Composit Tracks.
Minuses:
  • Short suspension.
  • Known issues with reliability and build quality.

Best Travel Snowmobile

Yamaha RS Venture TF
950 000

As a rule, manufacturers of tourist snowmobiles focus on maximum comfort and autonomy. Japanese engineers, no doubt, this task was a success.

The RS Venture engine is a three-cylinder, four-stroke, water-cooled. The two overhead camshafts and individual chokes with a diameter of 41 mm allow the motor a little more than a liter in volume both to move measuredly at low revs and to “shoot” from the place.

The speed characteristics of the snowmobile required an appropriate suspension - confidently handle all the irregularities, without tiring the driver and passenger by shaking, help the front suspension on transverse independent levers with Kayaba HPG shock absorbers and the adjustable suspension of the ProComfort track on two similar shock absorbers. The suspensions of this “tourist” can be argued with many utilitarian models: front - 219 mm, rear - 350.

For the timely shutdown of a heavy and dynamic vehicle, a double piston hydraulic caliper and an additional engine braking system are responsible (recall that the traditional design of the variator breaks the connection between the motor and the drive when the gas is discharged).

The electric power steering introduced into the design of the device reduces fatigue during long-term steering in dense snow. At the same time, the feedback on the steering wheel handles is not lost - RS Venture is not only easy to steer, but we also perfectly control it. The only thing that the owner should remember is that under it there is not a “vaidtrak” with a half-meter long caterpillar - the 380-mm Camoplast Ripsaw caterpillar is installed here, you should be careful on loose snow.

Main advantages:
  • Economical and powerful engine.
  • Excellent windshield.
  • Informative dashboard.
  • Energy-consuming long stroke suspension.
  • Easy control.
Minuses:
  • Narrow caterpillar.

The best snowmobile for long trips without much extreme. It does not shake, does not blow, control does not strain even with a long ride along winding paths.
Ski-Doo EXPEDITION SE 1200 4-TEC
1 279 000

A distant ride in deep and loose snow? This is undoubtedly the element of the Canadian snowmobile. Its three-cylinder Rotax engine with a displacement of 1.2 liters and a power of 130 hp. provides 322-kilogram snowmobiles excellent dynamics, and widely spaced skis allow you to maintain stability during maneuvers. The engine management system has three switchable settings: “Sport”, “Standard” and “Eco”. Brembo disc brake helps to stop the snowmobile on time.

The front suspension on the double A-arms has a stroke of 210 mm, and the easy multistage adjustment of the preload of the springs allows you to quickly adjust it to your requirements. The pneumatic suspension of the rear track provides it with a stroke of 340 mm.

The modular seat with integrated luggage compartment is very convenient, and you can easily find the optimum fit thanks to an adjustable steering wheel.

The power reserve for such power is quite good: the Expedition SE 1200 consumes about 13 liters of fuel for the “hundred”, a tank for 45 liters is enough for more than 300 kilometers.

Main advantages:
  • Powerful engine combined with high-end brakes.
  • Stability on bends.
  • Energy-intensive adjustable suspension.
Minuses:
  • A small amount of luggage - you should immediately think about luggage trunks.
  • High price.

A distant ride on this snowmobile is a pleasure. In this case, you can always switch to the sport mode, if you want extreme sports and there are no fears of getting up with a dry tank.
Lynx ADVENTURE GT 900 ACE
1 119 000

The Grand Tourer series successfully combines high comfort for riders and throughput. The buyer of the GT 900 ACE will have at its disposal a dynamic snowmobile with a 900-cc Rotax engine that can drive along virtually any surface, from the virgin snow to the forest roads.

The snowmobile transmission is worthy of utilitarian models - there is a downshift available, turning the device with a four-meter track with a width of 500 mm into a true all-terrain vehicle. LXU Blade plastic skis are durable and do not burrow into loose snow, despite the heavy weight of the snowmobile (312 kilograms).

The suspension is similar to that used on the Ski-Doo Expedition snowmobile.

Main advantages:
  • A good cruising range on a single 45-liter tank.
  • Comfortable modular seats.
  • High cross.
Minuses:
  • No seat heating as standard.

BRP Lynx XTRIM Commander LTD 600HO
1 046 000

The Xtrim series is a sports and tourist snowmobile designed for trips to unexplored places. Therefore, they are created on a utilitarian base, but they get a powerful engine and comfortable seats and suspensions.

The 600HO engine is a two-cylinder, six-cylinder, two-stroke liquid-cooling engine, delivering 115 horsepower. Thanks to the power valves in the exhaust ports of the cylinders, it maintains good traction at low revs despite a high degree of boost. Snow radiators are designed for combined cooling, so that the engine does not overheat when driving on a strong crust, unlike models where cooling is calculated only on the flow of snow thrown by a caterpillar.

Transmission snowmobile has a mechanical reverse and downshifting. In combination with a long caterpillar of 500-millimeter width, it allows you to overcome almost all the obstacles that a snowmobile can meet.

But the developers did not forget about enough comfort. His pledge is not only long-stroke suspensions (210/340 mm), but also comfortable seats, high wind deflectors, heated handlebars and passenger handrails.

Main advantages:
  • High cross.
  • Great speaker.
Minuses:
  • Two-stroke motor.
  • Heated seats for an extra charge.

I love to go far and for a long time. In this regard, "Commander" - the best tourist snowmobile. However, it is necessary to carry additional canisters - after all, a two-stroke motor, and the tank is only 45 liters.
Arctic Cat Pantera 7000 XT LTD
1 499 000

If you use analogies from the world of motorcycles, the “Arctic Panther” is more a sport-tourist than a tourist model. Primarily due to the engine: if the majority of tourist snowmobiles are equipped with four-stroke engines of large volume, then Arctic Cat engineers used a two-stroke engine, besides a carburetor. This unambiguously hints that a measured ride is not at all the element of the snowmobile. The problem with the same range was decided, as they say, "in the forehead," installing a 56-liter gas tank.

Despite the specificity of the snowmobile, it deserves inclusion in the ranking of the best.He has everything in order with the tourist qualities: the 500-mm track and wide skis provide a good cross-country ability to the snowmobile, and the power consumption and travel of the suspensions are at the proper level (216/330 mm).

All that is required for a comfortable ride is included in the standard equipment of the snowmobile: not only the handles and the gas trigger are heated, but also the passenger’s handrails. Windshield provides a high wind shield, and a comfortable fit - an adjustable steering column. In the presence of two sockets 12 V. In the dark, the head light with four halogen lamps can be very helpful.

Main advantages:
  • Rich equipment.
  • Easy handling, cornering stability and good throughput.
Minuses:
  • High fuel consumption.
  • Two stroke engine

Best Sports Snowmobile

Arctic Cat ZR 9000 137 Thundercat
1 429 000

The undisputed leader among the best sports snowmobiles was deservedly the “arctic thunder cat”. The liter engine installed here thanks to a turbo-supercharging gives out 180 hp just at 8500 revolutions per minute - an indicator that would provide good performance and a car. A light snowmobile with such an engine will be a worthy winter sportbike replacement.

To match the engine and transmission: the Arctic Drive CVT in an ultra-light magnesium crankcase is specifically designed to transmit high power without overheating the belt. Friction in the variator pulleys is maximally reduced to speed up the response to changes in engine speed. As a result, the owner of Thundercat gets the maximum possible acceleration dynamics, while predictable and controlled.

High-speed cornering is a high load on the front suspension. To fully comply with its class, Thundercat has widely separated levers associated with a shock absorber and ski cast aluminum racks. Adjustable shock absorbers provide ease of suspension settings for a specific track and a decent course - 254 mm.

The narrow 380-mm caterpillar Ripsaw II is mounted on the company's Slide-Action trolley, which increases traction with the coating during acceleration due to the specific kinematics of the levers. Fox Zero rear shock absorbers provide three modes of operation and 340 mm suspension travel.

To drive in the rack wheel easily rearranged to the top position on the 14-centimeter aluminum spacers. On winding tracks, it is just as easy to return to the lower position, and the shape of the saddle provides an easy and quick hanging of the driver's body during cornering.

Main advantages:
  • Great acceleration dynamics.
  • Easy adaptation of the suspension to your requirements.
Minuses:
  • For a purely sports apparatus, it is foolish to complain about fuel consumption or the absence of a passenger seat.

I will be brief: it brings down.
BRP Ski-Doo RENEGADE X-RS 800R E-TEC
1 200 000

Two-stroke engines are not in a hurry to give up their positions in the sport, and the Renegade engine confirms this: this two-cylinder unit of just 800 cm3 is almost equal in power to the Thundercat engine equipped with a turbocharger and produces 164 horsepower with a sharp “shot” forward characteristic of two-stroke engines set of revolutions. A variator tuned to almost 4000 rpm, easily tears the narrow Ripsaw crawler into a slip at careless handling of the gas trigger.

The front suspension arm is responsible for the handling of the snowmobile, in which the Kayaba PRO shock absorbers allow you to adjust your characteristics with just a flick of the wrist. Similarly, the rear suspension adapts quickly to the track with a 400 mm stroke, which makes it possible to use the Renegade on difficult tracks with numerous jumps and turns. It is worth mentioning the record low weight of the device - 218 kg.

Main advantages:
  • Great speaker.
  • The ease of adjusting suspensions that can endure serious jumps.
Minuses:
  • Low resource of the two-stroke engine, especially at rigid operation.
  • The specific shape of the power curve with a sharp pickup is not the best choice for new power with a sharp pickup - and not.
  • zhki.

A real good sports snowmobile without curtsies in the direction of normal driving. Excellent handling, crazy acceleration - but all of these need to be able to use.
Yamaha SR Viper X-TX SE
1 058 000

The three-cylinder Genesis liter engine of this snowmobile, of course, cannot be compared with the Arctic Cat turbo-unit - its power is only 130 hp, but for a lightweight vehicle this is more than enough, especially for inexperienced drivers, and the price difference is 400 seconds. over a thousand rubles will be a very motivating factor.

If the elements of Thundercat are high-speed tracks, then the Viper can give a shot of adrenaline and on virgin soil: although a narrow 380-mm track is installed here, but high Camoplast Cobra lugs will provide sufficient traction with loose snow where Thundercat already breaks the track into a slip .

Constant comparison with the leader of the ranking of the best snowmobiles is not accidental here - Yamaha and Arctic Cat engineers have been cooperating for a long time, and the Viper suspension is an example of this: it is absolutely identical in layout to the suspension used on Thundercat. Shock absorbers are also provided by Fox.

Main advantages:
  • Affordable price.
  • Energy-intensive and easy to adjust suspension.
Minuses:
  • By the standards of sports equipment is quite low power.

The best mountain snowmobile

Yamaha Phazer MTX
702 000

The next victory of Japanese engineers is well-deserved - they managed to create not only the best and passable, but also affordable best mountain snowmobile.

Pyotisotkubovy two-cylinder engine with 5 valves per cylinder produces 80 hp, which gives the 234-pound unit a good acceleration, and at the same time allows you to move confidently in the long climbs. The narrow Campolast Maverick 360 mm track with well-developed lugs provides excellent snow traction and at the same time does not limit the maneuverability of the snowmobile.

High-speed cornering and facilitates a narrow cross saddle, the driver can easily carry their weight and from the rack and from a sitting position. Adjustable track front skis allows you to choose the right balance between handling and stability.

Snowmobile suspensions are at the generally accepted level: the front has powerful A-arms and Kayaba gas shock absorbers, the rear is a ProMountain suspension designed for deep snow with 363 mm of full speed and a small angle of attack that facilitates movement in deep snow.

Main advantages:
  • Easy handling, especially in the right hands.
  • Lowest price on the market.
  • Excellent dynamic performance.
Minuses:
  • Small tank volume (26 l).

BRP Ski-Doo FREERIDE 137 800R E-TEC
1 189 000

High-speed cornering is the main feature of the Freeride family. When it was created, the engineers of Bombardier used the tMotion suspension, allowing considerable rolls of the snowmobile body relative to the track carriage, so that it is not necessary to “fight” with the snowmobile, bringing its own body to the side. For the same purpose, the special design of the FlexEdge caterpillar cord, centered and leaving the edges flexible, is applied - thus, with a strong tilt, the caterpillar seems to be broken, despite the rigidity of 57-mm lugs.

The decent snowmobile dynamics are due to the 800 cm3 Rotax two-stroke engine, the same as on the Renegade X-RS 800R sports snowmobile. But, if Renegade is intended primarily for sports tracks, then Freeride can be considered its version with improved maneuverability and controllability.

The main feature of sports suspension is the ease of adjustments - Freeride has retained fully. The handwheels of the Kayaba PRO shock absorbers are located in easily accessible places.

Main advantages:
  • Excellent dynamic qualities.
  • The ease of adaptation of the suspension.
  • Excellent handling.
Minuses:
  • It is not very suitable for beginners due to a highly accelerated two-stroke engine.
  • High fuel consumption.

Polaris 800 PRO-RMK 174 LE
1 399 000

Thanks to a small weight of 200 kg and a powerful 800 cm3 engine, this American snowmobile boasts excellent dynamics and is the best cross in its series: the longest 174-inch caterpillar (4450 mm) with a width of 380 mm is used here, the height of its lugs is 76 mm.

The power unit here, as in the Ski-Doo Freeride, is a highly accelerated two-stroke water cooling. To ensure acceptable torque at low and medium speeds, Polaris engineers used a three-position power valve on the release - depending on the speed of the valve in the exhaust ports of the cylinders, they rise and fall, allowing the engine to expand its operating range.

The suspension of the snowmobile is made using Walker Evans adjustable single-tube shock absorbers. Forged aluminum front suspension arms reduced unsprung masses. You can adjust the characteristics of hydraulics (compression and rebound damping), and spring preload.

Main advantages:
  • Energy-consuming and easily customizable suspension.
  • Powerful motor.
  • Good cross.
Minuses:
  • Electric starter is installed only for a fee.
  • The highest price of the ranked mountain models.

Best Kids Snowmobile

Taiga Lynx
105 000

Despite the small size, the construction of this children's snowmobile is quite serious: the skis are fixed on strong steel levers, and the used 200-cc Kohler engine quite confidently drags both the 80-kilogram snowmobile and its driver. The maximum speed for safety reasons is limited to 13 km / h.

Start - only manual (no wonder: the engine from the gas generator is used), for start it is necessary to raise the plastic hood, stylized as the older "Taiga". The volume of the gas tank is 2 liters, which is more than enough for an economical carburetor engine.

Transmission - the simplest: direct drive to the track through a centrifugal clutch.

Main advantages:
  • The cheapest kids snowmobile on the market.
  • Economical American engine.

Only the rolling one could “feel” - I would not have bought such an expensive toy (in fact). For the child, of course, there are enough speakers for 120 cubes, there are no complaints about the quality ... But the price!

First of all, it is worth deciding on why you need this car. Based on this, choose the type of snowmobile: do you need utilitarian, mountain, sports or tourist. Match the options with your skills: if this is your first snowmobile, it is hardly worth buying a car with a powerful and sensitive to the slightest trigger pull engine. Think about what kind of engine power you need, what technical bells and whistles are needed, what level of comfort is required. And then try on all of the above in your wallet. But whatever the result of this logical construction, in our rating, in any case, you will find a suitable option for yourself.
