Tightened The Design
To make the most out of the Ascender platform, Cat engineers tightened the design of the side panels to give the M 6000 a sleek look and making it narrower in the snow. This allows you to lean more into the hill without fighting with the width of the sled. Cat also simplified the design of the side panels so they are easy on/easy off to allow better access to the engine compartment.
With the Ascender platform, the running boards are one inch narrower. You may not think one inch is much … but just add an inch to a wrench and see how much more leverage you have. That one inch will allow you to hold a line across a steep sidehill even better. Cats always held good lines. Now it’s must much easier to do so.
