2018 Ski-Doo Skandic SWT 600 H.O. E-TEC


The ultimate utility sled with the industry's largest 24 x 154 in. (61 x 391 cm) track. Incredible flotation and traction mixes with maneuverability, dependability and comfort.


  • REV-XU PLATFORM: This base architecture and design sets the standard for light weight, durability and handling. Flexible riding position enables comfort sitting and standing. Driver can stretch their legs due to forward foot position. Cab and bottom pan shapes are optimized for flotation and snow flow. Styling is rugged and dynamic.
  • LTS FRONT SUSPENSION: Industry-exclusive telescopic front suspension enables a large, flat belly pan for exceptional deep snow flotation.
  • SC-5U REAR SUSPENSION: Our sport-utility suspension. Refined ride both on trail and on top of powder. Articulated rail to maximize deep snow traction in reverse or locked out when towing.
  • SYNCHROMESH TRANSMISSION: Take off from a stop smoothly, even with a heavy load, thanks to two forward and one reverse gears. Inline 2-1-N-R pattern on right side and can be safely shifted from High to Low while on the fly.
  • 24 x 156 x 1.25 TRACK: The industry’s largest footprint (24 x 156 in./ 61 x 396 cm) provides unmatched traction and helps the Skandic SWT achieve the lowest ground pressure in snowmobiling.
  • ROTAX 600 H.O. E-TEC ENGINE: The 600 cc-class benchmark for fuel economy, oil economy, smoothness and ease-of-use. Up to 21 mpg (11.3 L/100 km) trail fuel economy. Virtually no two-stroke smoke and smell and easy starting. Preparing for the off-season is easy with built-in automatic summerization function. No wonder it’s the best-selling 600cc engine in snowmobiling*. 120 horsepower. *Based on retail sale results as of December 31, 2016.
  • PILOT DS 2 SKIS WITH LINER: Single-keel with excellent sidehilling bite, thanks to thin outer edges. Narrow and thin, yet stiff. Shorter behind its complementary spindle with flat tail for easier counter-steering and sidehilling.
  • ANALOG GAUGE WITH DISPLAY: Smartly-styled analog speedometer and tachometer plus LCD digital information screen.
