Can-Am Traxter HD8 BASE T 2019
You challenged us, and we delivered the toughest, most capable, and most clever Can-Am ever. It’ll excel at everything you demand of it, with a superior feel that’s immediately noticeable. The Traxter pulls out the stops—and hauls them away.
HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX ENGINES
The work-focused Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque for tough tasks.
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.
4-MODE TRACTION SYSTEM – BETTER CONTROL
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 2×4 open rear differential for tight turning and turf protection, a 2×4 lockable rear for improved 2WD traction, a 4×4 open rear for more maneuverability in rugged terrain and a 4×4 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.
TTA-HD REAR SUSPENSIONS
The Traxter heavy-duty Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA-HD) was designed specifically for a utility and recreational usage, offers a full 10-in. (25.4 cm) of travel to provide a smooth ride whatever the terrain. Its architecture offers an optimal comfort and drivability in all conditions thanks to no camber.
VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT – PICK-UP INSPIRED SEATING

It can comfortably accommodate three adults and features “profiled” corners to improve entrance / exit of the cab as well as a sturdy vinyl cover for improved wear resistance. The passenger seats, complete with integrated hooks on their underside, also can be flipped up to improve onboard storage. Can-Am designers also added a foldable central console and armrest with two cup holders to allow more space in the cab.
OPEN DASH WITH REMOVABLE TOOLBOX AND UNDER DASH STORAGE – ADAPTABLE STORAGE
The open dash design features a handy removable and water-resistant 1.7 gal (6.3 L) toolbox, an industry exclusive, to allow users to carefully carry tools and supplies their need in an organized manner.

Strategic features include 5-gal (18.9 l) pail recesses, integrated anchors on the sidewalls and several tie-down points for added convenience. To fully optimise the sizeable cargo box, consumers can divide up the box using the integrated recesses.

PROFILED CAGE – CAB-READY
