Mine too. I actually chipped all the snow and ice off after one ride, weighed it, and posted it in the axys forum a couple years back. Holds a ton more than my short cooler Cats ever have.
Remember what it weighed

Found the pics on my phone. Just what I was able to chip off the sled, put in a bucket and weigh is was 17.5lbs. So probably held over 20lbs in reality.

It did have the Polaris extreme front bumper on which didnt help. I replaced it after that with a bmfab which held a lot less snow/ice

That is one thing i noticed going frome the base bumper to the extreme, is the amount of ice that collected

I had my 17 Mtn Cat and my buddy's 15 XM on the trailer in the garage after a deep day. I started knocking off ice and snow and taking it out in shovel fulls, easy 5 lbs a piece. I managed to get one shovel off the Cat, over a dozen to get the snow and ice off the Doo. The full skid plate on those is a huge holder of snow, the rear cooler build up the other. There was an easy 50-60 lbs of snow and ice on that machine.

Some definately hold more wieght than others and I can see an easy 30-50 lbs hanging off most sleds. The Cats less than others and the Alpha is just awesome at shedding snow.

My Alpha is the only sled I have ever owned that I can fairly easily lift the rear of the sled up and out of a trench by myself when stuck. I won’t even try it on my 175 Doo and it takes 3 to make it EASY. Snow is packed in the track between the rails and on top of the tunnel around my bag and removeable snow flap on that Doo. I also took pics on my phone of my riding buddies with there tracks filled with snow and my Alpha just clean as heck. I’d post them if i cared lol.

Loaded up in the truck. Scratchers put that snow where it is on the rail.

I believe this for sure, my XM would weigh ALOT more in the rear on a deep day. When I would go to lift it I couldn't believe how much more heavy it was. Would also cause it to trench more too.
