I've wanted a set of those tracks ever since I bought the Polaris - those things are GREAT!! Big money though. There was a used set for sale locally for about half price. Was still a big hit, so I passed. Chance like that never comes up around here. I'm kicking myself in the ass for not grabbing them when I had the dough. :(

Yeah .. the amount of money I spent just on the ATV & accessories could've got me a nice used backhoe ..... but I can't ride the powerlines, or do 70 across a frozen lake with that. It's all about priorities ... :lol:

I clear with this pronovost p800trc....... 80" at a time. I hate snow but have fun with it.
The drum spins to send snow-especially wet slush -out either side instead of up the chute. This storm was 28" of easy to move snow just enough water to make snowballs easily so was east to blow 45+ feet into the woods.
