So with this also mean the rear carries are on backwards ? Those adjusters are in the rear.

According to the manual the front carries have the adjusters in the front and the rear carriers have the adjusters in the rear.

Thinking this was done for ease of access above anything else.

On my 542 with 6 wheels, I do not have a choice as to where the adjusters are located. The 6 wheel carriers are not symmetrical front to rear and all 4 have the adjuster on the 'long' end. The long end of the carrier is out the front on the front and out the rear on the back. I can only swap the right rear to left front and left rear to right front which puts the adjusters out the corners. Your 5 wheel carriers appear to be symmetrical and can be relocated to any corner which would allow for adjusters all in front, rear or 2 of each.

Got my best two volunteers to go cut some blow downs and pack the trails after work in preparation for weekend festivities.

Better late then never on the sno!

The people spoke so we made time for one last winter carnival. Few youtubes for you. Bri Jr took some notes from the SnoSurfer Tucker rope tow. J.Tucker taking it all in and yes mom is loving the spring Tucker.

We are green here in Massachusetts many different ways now so we keep a recycling sno support vehicle in the snotilla!

Roof rack is a must on a cat!

Draft horses finally made it out to play today. Conditions were not optimal
for the two horse power but they made it happen. One of them had a little cold.

Question Re: 1973 Tucker Sno Cat 1443 New to Me

This Olympic hopeful at 18 months might be training this summer on Mt Hood!

I know a guy who specializes in this kind of transport?

Zoom in on the apple on his helmet and you see his DNA!

Who has a leg up on Tucker now ?

From experience I would take the steel track over the rubber track of in life it ever comes up have a choice to be run over by one. The Terra track or the terra grouser might be a premium option also.

Finally this is a sign the sun has set on our winter here in Massachusetts for now... March sun is no match for the sno! Mixed emotions must be why they call it March Maddness!

It rises in the East and sets in the West glowing Omaha Orange over the Homeland many Tucker Smiles away!

You guys really know how to have fun. What a crew and what a bunch of fun snow toys! I feel the heat coming on here too but we stocked up well this winter and hoping we can go well in to May.

Winter still going strong in parts of New Hampshire. Wish they would embrace cat usage like out west!

Especially seeing as the clubs have mostly run out of grooming funds and rhe trails aren't being used.

Maybe one day ......
