Hi Folks, Nice to be here with you. This week we were to our locale BRP dealership and tried to order a 6x6 max for next summer. We couldn't get that done but we will shortly. We have owned and used for work a Polaris Boss for years now and like it very, very much, but needed the extra HP and power assisted steering for operating with pods on while in snow. Yes, it really does snow here. Ask if you'd like to see past pics of the boss. Hope everyone's fall is the very best!

Hello, a few days ago we received a new work machine (Fire Rescue Service) Outlander 1000 Max 6x6. It is intended for rescue and transport from inaccessible places. It is an amazing machine. They are still getting to know it, it still needs to be fine-tuned for our special use.

Dobrý den, před pár dny jsme obdrželi nový pracovní stroj (Hasičský záchranný sbor) Outlander 1000 Max 6x6. Je určen pro záchranu a transport z nepřístupných míst. Je to úžasný stroj. Stále se s tím seznamují, ještě je potřeba to doladit pro naše speciální použití.
How long does it take you to change wheels for belts?

We got our 6x6 back this week and learned that the front drive shafts are being blown by pod users on a regular bases. BRP knows this is a problem. It was covered under warranty but it is $900 repair job. If can-am does not fix this weak part design, we will be getting rid of this machine.....

@SuperATV has a fix for this.

Ahh...Sounds like you either broke the prop...or the output on the transmission. Unfortunately we don't make a prop shaft for the Outtie. We don't make a lot of transmission parts for it either....at this time. If you're in need of axles, I can help you there.

This is the splines the was trashed. This is the short shaft the goes between the output and differential.

Is this blamed on the tracks, or is this also a problem with the 6x6 with wheels? Sounds like Can-Am needs to fix this right, not just do frequent repairs.

I don't do anything close to what you are doing with your 6x6, but still I am impressed with the 4x4 of my 570. Not good in deep snow, as it cannot get up on top of it, but the traction is great even on ice I have difficulty just walking on.

Seem this has been grief on older outlander 4x4's without pods and any outlander with pods. The bad splines I posted a pic of was on a 4x4 outlander.

Do the double boot mod/upgrade.

@xsever you got that thread handy?

If ya ever get a chance to, I'd also do the solid motor mounts.
