Since its identical to the M8 other than the motor. My guess is the M6 motor is about 10lbs lighter than an M8. My 2014 M8 153 sno pro was 481lb out of the crate.

I want to know how it could be identical
I thought an m8 was for heavier riders and
aren't the 600 and 800 s have different shocks springs for riders weight?

I too would think the M8 and M6 are identical except for engine so I guess about 10 pounds less than a M8, 15 pounds less at most

M6000 doesnt come in anything less than a snopro for now, so they wont have springs anyway.

After owning an M6 someone is going to have to give me some good reasons to buy another one. I bought the sled for my son who was 8 and is now ten and we are looking to upgrade. I think they are spot on that you only save the weight of the 800 to 600 hundred motor.

I have rode several 600s and I compliment the manufactures at really doing a great job making a machine that runs really well.

When you ride the 800 you cannot really tell the difference in weight and you really notice the power difference. There is a reason the people riding in the back country are riding an 800s. In the powder the torque of the motor does not throw you around as bad but has the torque that is needed in the deeper powder. I live at lower elevation and there is a definite reason for the difference in the 600 and 800 but I do not see it in the mountain sled.

I know there is a difference in the price tag but you will get your money back out of the 800 and they are easier to sell.

Im a little curious as to why any thread started about the M6000 turns into why the 800 is so much better than the 600. We understand the m6 might not be the best option at higher elevations but in the Midwest it will be fine. The power of the 800 at flatland can get a guy into trouble real fast. I also don't agree with the higher resale of the 800 over the 600. Out west yes but where im from the 600's are hard to find the ones I do come across folks want a lot for them. I know the site is called SnoWest and not SnoMidwest but we are coming to you folks for advise or help with the model we have chosen.

I agree mja, a lot of guys here are compensating for something when they say the don't want a 600 and need their 800s.

Default M6000 153" Sno Pro Weight

The new 600 DSI motor is approximately 8lbs lighter than the 800 H.O. so comparing dry weights would be:

M8000 153" Sno Pro 465
M6000 153" Sno Pro 457

Our testing on production 2014 M8000 models shows Arctic Cat claimed weights to be very accurate.

I agree with Arctic Cats weights being very accurate. I just weighed my 2014 HCR it had oil and antifreeze in it I calculated the weight of the oil and antifreeze and was withing one lb of Arctic Cats claimed weight. (AC claimed 465 I came up with 466). Arctic Cat puts the weight of the sled on the decal on the back of the tunnel, if anyone gets a chance to take a look at the new M6000, look on the back and you can find the weight.

I was just at country cat. The back of the tunnel of the m6000 said 225kg (496lb) and the a m8000 153 sno pro said 255kg (562lbs)

Pretty sure those weights are considerably off. The spec sheet says the m6000 is 465lb dry and an m8000 sno pro with electric start says 495lb dry.

Also, the m6000 spec sheet for clutching is exactly the same as the m8000.... so I think that sheet is all kinds of messed up.

I thought the old 600 motor was lighter than the 800 ho so shouldn't this new 600 that is 10lbs lighter than the old 600 weight more than 10 lbs lighter than the 800 ho????

oh and the stock can on the 6000 looks the same size as the 8000.... so potentially over 20 lbs of weight
