The 440 Panther is a 2-stroke, fan cooled sled. When it is equipped with a long track, it will be marginal with two people on it. Three people will be pretty impossible and very unsafe. They were marketed for the rental fleets when they came out.

If you want a powder sled, I would pass on this one; a 440 fan doesn't have a whole lot of power stock, and there are really no major add-ons to make more power. Spend a little more money and get an EXT or Powder Special in at least 580 or 600 (liquids) engine size to not be stuck all the time...

The 440 fan is a very light-weight sled. It would be a blast to play on if you are on the trails or a meadow somewhere; very easy to toss around.
