Arctic Cat has recalled over 16,000 snow mobiles after reports that the front lower suspension arm may crack during use, potentially leading to loss of control of the snow mobile. Snow mobiles affected by the recall include all 2010 Arctic Cat Z1, TZ1, F, Bearcat, M and CF models.
The snow mobile recall was announced yesterday. Arctic Cat/CPSC has received 13 reports so far of suspension arms cracking. Given the speeds these things go, you can imagine the risk. But no snow mobile accidents have been reported, at least not yet.
If you have one of these snow mobiles, you are advised by the SPSC to immediately stop riding it and contact their dealer to schedule a free repair. You can also call Arctic Cat at (800) 279-6851 or visit their website.
