I have a set I use on my 800 Sportsman. I like them a lot, but don't think your going to move real fast, they are geared slower than your tires. Check out different ones, some have BIGGER Sprockets for a faster speed. I have heard people having trouble burning or blowing belts on Side by Sides with Tracks.

Con - if there is slush on the ice and you don't have a warm garage to park it in over night, forget about riding it until it can thaw out.

I was lookig at the mattracks (litefoot) I know you lose speed but with tires in deep snow you can't get going to fast anyway.and the garage is always warm!

Mattracks are not the best in the snow, they are more of an all terrain track. If I was to ever get another set of tracks I would look into the Tatou 4s tracks. From what I've seen the Tatou tracks will run circles around the Mattracks. I have a set of Polaris prospector pro-s on my ranger. Lots of track info over at trackshare.

For all the information about tracks search atv tracks. They have all the brands out there along with facts, videos, specs, etc and respond very quickly via email if you have any questions on anything requarding tracks. Great group of guys, they will help you out in getting the right set of tracks for you.

I looked at the Tatou 4s (sweet) But one more question

Do you have to licence them differently?

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC.
