Razor with tracks?

11 posts in this topic

i didnt research this too much but i thought i would check into this for a friend of mine. A Razor with tracks, in the winter, can they legally operate this an a groomed snowmobile trail? any help would be much 'preciated. thanks

I would say it would be no before it is yes. Even with tracks on it, it's still not classed a snowmobile.

yeah we was having a discussion the other day and they think they can do it but I told that they couldnt and I would have to say no as well. I told them that they would have to put a trail permit just like you would do with a snowmobile. i told them they best look into it. of all the miles i logged on our state snowmobile trails I have never seen a side by side or wheeler with tracks running down the trail. plus i was just kinda hoping to prove them wrong. haha

the added weight might actually bump the RAZR over the weight limit of 1500 lbs and then it would be classified as an OHV. I think either way, that's what it would be considered if a person were to be technical about it.

A snomobile is defined by the state of MN as:

The legal definition of a snowmobile is a self-propelled vehicle designed for travel on snow or ice steered by skis or runners.

2008-2009 regs page 18

Snowmobiles operating on state and grant-in-aid trails must have a Snowmobile State Trail Sticker.

There was a post in the LOW forum this winter and the ruling was that ATV's with tracks are not allowed on snomo trails.

A snomobile is defined by the state of MN as a vehicle with ski(s) on the front and track(s) on the back.

No mater what you need a snowmobile tag to ride on most groomed snowmobile trails.

wish they would make them bike riders buy that permit also!

They say you loose 40% of your top speed with tracks.

With my mule top speed is 25 mph so that calculates to about 15 mph top speed with tracks, which seems about right.

That don't seem to fast but it is alot faster than 0 mph when you are stuck. smile

I think the top speed on a ranger is around 55 to 60.

so that would mean a top speed of 33 to 36 mph.

    • Been out on a few solo adventures lately. Finding some slab crappies mostly. Got into a mix of gills and slabs today! Fish have been hit and miss this ice season locally but if your willing to put the work in you can find em. Finding fish in that 20-30 fow area depending on the weather. Crappies range from 12-14" and the gill is 10". Most fish caught on plastic baits, a few on waxies. It's been a blast lately! Hopefully my luck keeps up! Have a look!! 
    • Very good-think for yourself.  Trust-to a degree-your gut.  Hemingway always bragged about his buhlsnick sniffer and most of the press people in my life have had excellent  sniffers. But you HAVE to believe in some media efforts simply because there is no value to them of lying about some things and frankly I doubt that many do with any regularity. As far as you 'why I have no idea" regarding political parties and those "invested" in them it is because they BELIEVE certain causes or philosophy's are what they agree with.  Nothing wrong with that. Communists fervently believe (or did) that their way was the best.  Libertarians the same and of course Republicans and Democrats espouse the basic beliefs of their party. There is nothing wrong with any of the PARTIES.....it is the PEOPLE who end up at the top of them. I have learned that one of the reasons for that is simple:   too many truly good and decent people pf talent and ability cannot bring themselves to run for office. It has become degrading and the reason is simple.....because the public trashes and bashes all politicians as "corrupt" and the politicians who ARE corrupt deter others from seeking office. We have some pretty sleazy people running this country and it is sad. No,   I do not know the answer. It is too late.
    • The great part is he doesn't own a house yet down here so if the plan is in-home daycare, he can look for a house that will suit his needs.   One thing I would do different if I were going to up and move but I had to stay around the metro area, I would move to the far north suburbs instead of the far south suburbs where I am now. I hate having to go through the cities in order to go up north for the weekend camping or fishing.
    • You should make us all some ribs so we can taste it. 
    • I like a lot of the new Shell's flavors that they have now but I got burnt out on regular Shell's back in college because I had 3 roommates that were all from New Ulm and they could buy returnable bottle cases really cheap. How ever many cases could stack in our apartment from floor to ceiling is how many we would go through each week.
    • The drawer rails you just want ones with "detent" on them. I think ours are set to 10lbs.   Here are pics for the doors.
    • You might want to try, if you haven't already, the app WAZE on your phone.   real time traffic and suggested alternative routes.  
    • I had a guy do that also on Sat in N.D. Pulled in with a Ford F350 and a big Ice Castle and started his  2000 watt All-Pro generator and set it in front of his pickup about 40 ft and went and got in his house. I went and asked him if he want to plug into my Honda 2000 so I didnt have to listen to its all afternoon.   But when I left we picked up and got everything ready. He never came out and I could see him looking out the window so I just unplugged his cord and picked up my generator and left. Never came out to thank me. But the guy next to me thanked me so he wouldnt have to listen to it.
    • Agree on both Stall & Stewart as huge bonuses....but I'm not going to give Fletch credit...it's all on those 2 players that they resurrected their game with new found youth.  It was a "wing & a prayer" from Fletch's standpoint....he had to do something, threw his darts on the wall and they stuck at Stall and Stewart and fortunately for Fletch it has worked out...and both were cheap signings....
