HIGH RIGIDITY CHASSIS
The Traxter is an extremely capable off-road vehicle and a legitimate workhorse that uses an all-new chassis with automotive-like technology and fabrication tolerances that are in line with modern pick-up trucks. The high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grade steel means a more rigid design for taking the strain of heavy-duty chores. Can-Am engineers put the Traxter frame through the new rigorous Utility Test Cycle at the winter and summer testing grounds to ensure its toughness
The Visco-Lok † front differential combined with the lockable rear differential* offer a 4-mode traction system providing multiple choices for varying terrain or tasks. Users, via a separate front-and-rear toggle switches, can select between a 2x4 open rear differential for tight turning and turf protection, a 2x4 lockable rear for improved 2WD traction, a 4x4 open rear for more maneuverability in rugged terrain and a 4x4 locked rear for maximum traction. The rear differential is gear-on-gear to the transmission for better response, no maintenance, better efficiency and fewer components.
*Lockable rear differential is available on selected models.
