A cure for tracked UTV envy

Snowcat Pat

Member
I can safely say that I have never had that envy in the first place.

Slow, steady, warm and with my peeps and all our gear is my style. And staying out all night, by choice.

However, 32 years ago I did have snowcat envy. Only one cure for that.

Anything can be broke.... Nonetheless, you couldn't get our 6x6 that I use to plow our yard and driveway with out of my cold, stiff fingers. :thumbup:

I love my tracked ATV !
I have gotten a track stuck under an ice lip several times and getting it out can be difficult so I always take someone with me on another tracked bike on adventures like that :)

It's one heck of a lot cheaper to keep going than my snowcats and lots easier to move.

Oh, ya...I go slow, mostly.

I've dropped a rear pod through the ice on a frozen pond some years ago. The only reason we were grooming across it was a strink'n beaver dam had flooded our trail which then became there pond. Oh well. They didn't last very long and moved on.



Pods do require maintenance..

I can lay my hands on a couple of Huey's with pilots. Who wants to loan me a Can-Am?
