Good job with the cab build, it looks nice. Did the factory wheel spacers provide enough clearance for the 18" Argo tracks?

For those wondering about the performance of the Max IV, they are a great small machine that is easy to transport and very effective in the right conditions. I use mine when a full size cat is not needed and snow conditions are firm. I have had it in several feet of light powder and literally run circles around stuck snowmobiles. That being said, they are best in dense snow conditions and flat terrain. They would be great for just about anything east of the Rockies. The machine will not climb hills in soft snow well, which is it's major weakness where a larger machine will shine.

akmountaineer, the wheel spacers have been fine for the Argo tracks. No problems so far. It's been a great little machine. We'll be sorry to see her go.

We have seen this machine in action traveling the trails at Strawberry.
It is even parked in a heated garage between uses!
