    Looks seriously good where access is intermittent snow/bare plus they’ll trail or break trail in winter conditions but no where near as fast as a sled. There’s several places near home that this would save lots of tourtime = more turntime especially early/late. Anyone ever used 1? Are they as good as the hype? Good – 4 stroke/not so loud/not really terrain destructive since they have such a large surface area. Bad???

    I doubt it will be very easy to switch between tires and tracks for switching between tires and tracks… it’s a pretty cool idea though for someone who already has a 4 wheeler. I have seen a similar setup on a suburban.

    this would be my choice for enviro-conscious snomoshredder…

    Ouch $7200 for a 500 cc. The 4 strokes are starting to be nice but are still way too expensive.

    Agreed, that’s why I didn’t get one. The newer two strokes are fairly clean running and don’t make that much noise if you keep the pipe stock. Snowest classified online is a good place to find a deal.

    Thanks RF, I got a couple 800 Summit 151 last season. Just waiting for the snow to fly. 8)

    I’m figuring only 2x/yr would I ever switch tires>tracks & back. If they’ll go where a sled will go & actually break trail, and handle the intermittent conditions early & late it would be a better alternative to a sled(maybe)?

    Not looking for massive hillclimb rocket power. Also not looking to yo/yo the backcountry via this thing – just a way to save tourtime especially in the eary/late season times when a sled becomes useless.

    Sleds will run on gravel… not ideal but in spring and early fall patches of gravel on the access are part of the deal. If you want a sweet a access machine look at a wide track skidoo tundra.
    I’ll take my summit 800 any day over a touring machine but the tundra will get you and a friend out there no worries as long as you don’t have to break trail.
