I must have run out of grease after greasing the rollers on the 443 and forgot about the trailer. I got to the unloading area 14 miles from the house and found I was missing the tire, wheel, and drum but the nut was still there. A couple of us drove the route back to the house but couldn't find the missing pieces, probably so hot it melted right through the snow and buried itself. I repacked the bearings and adjusted the brakes last year and must have got the nut a half-flat too tight. Just got back from Olympic trailer with a new complete 7K axle and hope to get it back together in a few days to load the 542 for the 8 hr trip From Winthrop. Hope to roll into McCall by 3pm Thursday.

And some people don't see the reason for a two axle trailer.

I haul my ST backwards. No wind to pop the hood up, and lots less glass to worry about. Backing on the trailer is no problem either...

I also have a wall built around the front end of the trailer to keep road splash from getting all over the tracks and such.. Big help as well keeping the rock chips away.

Regards, Kirk

I sure I could do better on the loading.
I brought two of those snowmobile extra tanks to show off. they slip right in behind the rail and lock. no straps needed. but won't work on your modified cat.

That's the right rear isn't it? I have had 2 flats so far. Same location on the trailer. Right rear.

Funny you mention that. The baskets on mine are not going to be there much longer. I will be back to stock configuration in the future.

Yes, right rear. When I brought my 443 up from Sparks, NV I had a blow out on the left rear and didn't know it until someone said so at a traffic light. Not sure if it's bad mojo from the 443 or bad axle since I only have trailer problems when hauling tucker. This short trip was 7 miles on the highway with a pickup behind me all of the way so I don't believe it came off then. The other half of the trip was a county road that was in horrible condition and probably would not have noticed when it came off. The tire is partially captured up under the deck so the only way to come off the spindle was if the bottom kicked out first. I've got the new axle in and now replacing brakes and bearings on the front so everything is new.

Stopped in at Salish Lodge for a couple nights on our way to McCall ID . The valet asked if we would park the Kristi KT7 in front of the lodge. The lot was full, so I asked where do you want me. He said I will move the Maserati and you can park there. Had to laugh ! Photos to follow

Note to self ( get a smaller snocat for trips like this ) heading out this evening. I am worried about the tires on the trailer with all the weight. I did check the oil in the hubs on the trailer however. We have 4 mountain passes to pull. Hope to see you all there!!!!

A Kristi is far more rare than a Maserati.

On another note is there any way some of that Snocat brew could make it's way back to Washington for some poor guy that can't go?
