I'm guessing spring sales were poor:

 Maybe trying to get rid of the sleds that they had sold in Canada before the judge said no more sales?

So people can't even pick up their snow-checks?  That's harsh.

 

I was possibly interested in a R-XC but I see Cat is not offering it.  Another Cat fail.

It really sucks for Cat. I hate them to death but, I love all sleds in general and don't wanna watch this ship continue to sink.

People from Chicago buy these. Maybe they will bail them out.

It’s going to go down more in the next couple of years till texton let’s them go to someone else.one only thing matters to a equality firm, numbers to resell them.

With the dates chosen I tend to wonder if their after the $1200 down payments for them

Picked up a new to me 600 ren this past weekend and the zr is going for sale come fall. It will end up south of the Wisconsin border like the others have

X2 it does say a lot. This will make a real dent on sales that are already low.

It might actually be a genius move. The dealers in my area are selling units like crazy. Two dealers I was at last week even had sleds in the showroom and they sold them!

It says they are abiding by the judge's order and nothing more.

But were they cats?

 

My local dealer only sold Cat up until last season. Because of the order only program, he picked up Ski Doo and Can Am. He needed to have something on the showroom floor to bring people into the store. He sold every Ski Doo he could get his hands on last season. We had a good snow year and he was able to get rid of his left over Cats. In the spring, all the Cat signs came off the building and the Ski Doo and Can Am signs went up in their place. This summer, he was selling every Can Am ATV and side by side he could get. Nothing from Cat at all. He said he will order a Cat sled or ATV/SxS if you want it. But, no one has been. Most people want to see and touch it before buying it. 

 

Hopefully Cat will let dealers order sleds for the showroom floor again after the Wearhouse is cleared out. And not force them to take sleds that will not sell in their area. If not, Cat has a long hard road ahead of them.

From what I'm seeing, we're going to have a shortage. We got hit with very uncertain times right when the snow-checks were going on. Now we somewhat stabilized to a new normal and I think people have a more open wallet now in compared to last March. I would order a 21 right now if I could.
