Arctic Cat Stampede 4 XT EPS.....

Recommended Posts

It seems like a perfect middle ground between the Kawasaki Mule Ranch Edition and the Polaris General 4 1000  .

But I can't find any reviews for this thing or who makes it's engine.

It looks great, seems like an awesome SxS, but would love some insight.  If you have any experience with this rig, please chime in.

I just purchased a 2020 Stampede 4 XT EPS about 30 days ago.  Like you I really couldn't find any reviews or information outside of the Arctic Cat website.  I think this is because Textron who bought Arctic Cat back in 2017 recently decided to bring the Arctic Cat name back to their UTV's after originally only using it on the snowmobiles post acquisition.  From the best I could tell this is the same 4 stroke engine that Textron had in the Recoil and Ambush models.   It's now being built in one of their MN facilities after moving production from Germany so it appears the whole machine is now built in MN.  I ended up purchasing the Stampede because I am familiar with the reliability of the Arctic Cat snowmobile brand from growing up in the north, the great standard features it comes with and the significant rebates that Artic Cat is currently giving.  I will say that down in Texas where I live they are extremely difficult to get.  I ended up having to go up to OK to pick one up.  I was told this was because this is a new model and the plant has been shut down due to the Pandemic.  

So far I really like the Stampede.  I only have about 20 hours on it but so far it's been a great vehicle.  Have mostly used it around our property to haul fencing equipment and other misc items.  I have taken it out in the mud a few times, once with a buddy who has a smaller Razor.  Obviously the Razor is more designed for off road so it was more nimble but overall it didn't blow my doors off by any stretch of the imagination and I was able to hang on it's tail almost all the time.   For me the real test will be in the long term durability of it because so far the initial performance and quality have been really good.  So far it's been well worth the long drive to pick it up and the money.

      I just bought a 2019 Odes Ravager 1000.  I took it in for a check up at my local offroad shop.  They changed oil and oil filter.  There's a leak around the end cap.  Has anyone had this same problem?

      Ok so I have a Polaris ranger xp 08 I think . I started it up no problem( never had any ) drove it out of the garage about 15 feet and let it idle for about 5 mins . Then it started to sputter , gave it some gas and it stalled out. Tried to start it a couple times but wouldn’t go. I figured gas was low, put some in but same thing . So I got the ether and took the air filter off sprayed it in and it fired right up but would stall out instantly.  So I tried it again and gave it some gas but same thing . Next I just sprayed and jus got enough to gas it back into the garage . But then I saw flames coming out of the air intake . Was able to put it out quick ( 10 seconds) just by blowing on it . Before anyone says to much starting fluid I know a little goes a long way . I didn’t hold it down and jus spray , only a quick burst twice before stalling out . But where do I go from here ? Engine not getting enough gas ? But then why was I able to start/drive/ and idle at first ? Now I can’t even get it started . Let me know what you think.
