A member here used to own that same machine. It is now in Canada I think. This show is from quite a few years ago now...

I purchased that machine and brought it to the US. I sold it 2 years ago and it’s now in Canada. One of the dumbest things I’ve ever done, still kicking myself for selling it. We finished it and upgraded several things while we had it. Rhinoliner sprayed on the underside and the cabin floor, sound deafening mats and then carpet. Dual battery. Upgraded lights. Etc

If you would have bought it I would be close enough to go back to visit it on the weekends.

They did a passable job, but not a good job.

It ended up here because I bought it there and brought it here.

I sold it on the forum. The guy who bought it drove down from Canada, he does not post on the forum but is a member. He bought it as a toy to drive his grandkids around in the snow.

US$9000.00, the price was non-negotiable. I thought about asking more and could have gotten more but I wanted to free up some garage space.

Hello Oilline, I have a machine and live just round the corner from you in Foulridge if you want to have a catch up.
