Get a Dragon RMK if you can. I rode that Chassis last spring and it was simply hands down the best sled I have ridden. Now with that new 700 motor it should be amazing.

If he's a doo guy I would recommend getting him a Rev chassis Summit 151. That sled should be able to handle everything that is thrown at it.

Any rider would drool over the new Summit 800r. If hes a Doo man he may just need a fresh change of underwear. They are beautiful sleds and will hold their own against anything even if it has 1000 on the side.

Ski Doo makes great sleds like the summit. The M series from Arctic cat would be nice and or maybe the crossfire. If your in serious deep powder I suggest an 800 series.

You should get him a Sno-Pro or a M-Series.

uh; um, ya, no! Revy is just not Minnesota. I would go long and big, if the 800 summit isn't enough, and he doesn't seem to be able to do what he wants, Id probably recommend the summit 1000. I have an 02 800 144" and it doesn't handle nearly as good in the powder as the Rev. The rev is effortless side-hilling and carving, I'm 35 and I'm not into working my butt off and jumping side to side like I was 20 anymore. I rode with lots of rev's last year and those guys weren't even sweaty!! Hence my 07 800 151. Way way more fun with 1/3 the work to throw around. Besides, you live in Doo country my man!! Tear it up, good luck!-- ps, the 05 1000's are going for about $ 7800.00 U.S. here brand new!! each of the 3 dealers within 100 miles of me had at least 3 of them, and they were updated.- just a thought.

I would stay away from the doo 1000. if he was a bigger guy it would be ok for him, but sense he is only 180 lbs I dont think he wants to handle that sled. it takes a big guy to throw that around. would be nice if skidoo did something with that sled. the cat 1000 does not take as much effort to toss.

I was in Sicomous couple days ago and i rode the 800 summit amazing 06 sled by the way (big differance from 2000 model) , they had about 7 or 8 ft of powder, didnt make it through all the way but it beat all the other mod sleds, if u can afford it, i would get that one IMO, (and im a cat guy). If u can afford newer the King cats are amazing and u can get an 03 for a good price, compared to the summits!! good luck
