I ended up with a tucker,but REALLY liked the trooper I was able to drive a couple of times. Not being much of a mechanic I was a little leary of the hydrostatic pumps(it had quite a few hours on it). Got any more pictures? Looks like you've tried them all!

Both machines were the Tier 2 units, built before Prinoth took over production. First Trooper was perfect and I still regret selling it in 2008. This one only had 400 hours on it, but is not without leaks. Still dealing with that problem now (I'm not much of a mechanic either). Have way too many pictures, I could share.
Have driven many Tuckers and originally was looking for a used Tucker 2000XL, but found this one instead at a good price last spring. PIA having to get a Oversize Permit to haul it though.

welcome nobody. there is actually quite a lot of bombi folks on here.

Post a picture of the damage in the repair area, I am sure many will jump in and help figure it out.

Here's our 66 IMP that we have a lot of work in and we enjoy the hell out of it. We have a camp in western Maine and have a great trail system and plenty of uphill terrain for the mountain sleds.

Default Re: POLL: What brand snowcat do you own?

think there maybe a flaw or 2 in the poll and how you vote, as you can only vote once, and how do you vote for a second machine?

and what happens to the machine when you sell it and the new owner votes in the poll as the new owner, double counted?

only reason i say anything, is i am interested in the real numbers of machines that are listed in the poll,

so DOC, can this be fixed?

I agree. I have 4 Bombardiers but I might have voted when I had a Thiokol.

Slim, try Remote Access Service snow cat parts. 1 916 764 4619. Ask for Tim. Good place to start.

I'm a new cat owner. Not really a cat, but what boils down to a snow and rough terrain pickup truck for my little homestead: a Nodwell 60 of some kind outfitted with a flatbed and the cab from a Kassbohrer Pistenbully 145D.

1975 Thiokol Spryte, 133 hours, previously owned by RJohnson and NailedElk on the forum. It was originally owned by Southern California Edison and kept in Pomona for use in the San Gabriel Mountains. It was subsequently acquired by Snowtrans and then privately owned in Oregon, Utah, and Colorado.

It need some basic maintenance and updating, and we will try to do some improvements as well.

We sold our IMP to a guy in Vermont and found this 1987 LMC 1500 in NY state. All new axles, HEI distributor, and EFI kit installed since we bought it.
