New sled for wife

8 posts in this topic

Looking for a new sled for the wife. Long track short track. four stroke 2 stroke? Heading to Jackson Hole for a week soon and don't think the old 440 MXZ is up for it. Don't want her to et beat to death. We are getting into more riding then we did before. Any thoughts?

Since your going out there and not sure what sled to pick up for her right now. Maybe just rent one out there and see how she likes it to get a better idea if she likes it and what she can handle-size wise. ;)

I would look for rental places now and call ahead to make sure that you have one waiting when you get there. Long ways to go to find out they are all rented for the weekend. :(

Thanks guys but not going to pay $200 a day. Just was wondering what any of your wives are riding to get a idea what they were riding. Bought her a 2014 mxz with the 900 ace 4 stroke. All the sleds she test drove (test drove a lot) she liked this the best

Great to hear and hope she loves it. The rental idea was just a suggestion which would have been cheap if someone bought a new sled they didn't like at $10-14,000!

There is a good chance that her sled may become your favorite sled to ride

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • 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.
