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!

thanks all. they got the tracks thinking they could go on the snowmobile trails and i told them thats what the snowmobiles were for but they sold their sleds just recently. I guess I will be riding without them next winter.

With tracks on a razor, Why would you want to follow a sled anyway, make your own trail. cool

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.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
