Hey guys, im new to the forum but not to the prowler xtx. ever since i bought my prowler ive had really jerky takeoffs and the dealer always said thats just the way the prowler is, finally on vacation up north on the rim my turf saver rear end bit the bullet. the driveline would spin 17 times before the thing would start jerking around and moving, then once you were moving at say 30mph and let off the throttle it would free wheel and then finally catch and damn near throw you over the hood. so i came home, pulled the rear end apart, pulled the inner housing apart and found that the clutch packs were completely worn, so i did what any welder would do and turned it into a lincoln locker, the whole inner housing is welded up and back together and going strong, to replace it with a factory housing its over 900.00$, to go to the 650 rear end it would be even more because if the different ring and pinion sizes, plus you have to do front and rear. all it cost me was labor since im a welder. if you want this done or have questions on this just p.m. me. thanks guys, sorry for the long post

hey there i am looking to fix the turf saver problem in my 2010 prowler as well i was just wondering did the weld hold or did it just blow up after a while, also is it just like the bevel gears in a truck dif to weld?

I believe joes5091 got rid of his turf saver in his 09 I think he did it fairly cheap without welding,I have heard of the welds breaking,might be just the guy welding.

I think there was a write up on another site regarding the welding. Both posts that I'm aware of have suffered rear end failure after use. From what I can remember you have to open up the clutch can on the turf saver, remove the clutch plates and weld the inner housing to make it a spooled rear end. Nobody has a service pack for these Turf Saver's. I tried the Eaton Site to find any info, no dice, I called Curry Rearends, no dice. Options are welding (may not hold), replace with an 700XT gear (need the inner cv's for this to work as the splines are different), or but a new turf saver (very costly). I did see several complete 36Teeth differentials on the power sports nation, but you are in the 360.00 range for used, and you would still need the inner cv's. I priced CV joints for mine and they were close to 100.00 dollars, I bought complete axles for 120.00. Don't figure. Hope you get what you need!
