With input from Army and Defence Research and Development Canada staff, our engineers designed and manufactured a heavy duty, diesel multi-fuel utility snowmobile capable of long range military missions. Known as the D900, our snowmobile has a high payload and towing capability. Its compression-ignition engine is designed for NATO common diesel fuels resulting in considerable fuel economy. The D900 is no standard recreational snowmobile!
The D900 offers a range of more than 500 kilometers on a single tank of fuel. It is purposely designed for military and police service use, and is ideally suited to the requirements of long range sovereignty patrols across Canada and throughout the North.
In 2015, the Army acquired twenty early model D900 snowmobiles to be used by soldiers and Canadian Rangers in trials and evaluations in locations as far north as Cambridge Bay and Resolute, Nunavut. Additionally, Defence Research and Development Canada successfully tested the D900 in the Arctic against some of the most innovative utility vehicles available for Canadian Arctic operations.
As Arctic operational requirements continue to evolve, our team at DEW continues to grow to provide innovative options to militaries world-wide.
