Polaris 6 wheeler

6 posts in this topic

I am thinking that a 6 wheeler will be better than 4 wheeler for hill climbing and snow plowing . Can anyone confirm this for me  ? I have a steep incline from the lake to my house on uneven ground , I can do it with a 4 wheeler with weight on the front rack but am close to the limit

6x6 is way better for climbing. You would be surprised at what you can climb with a 6x6.

They make a set of tracks for the back wheels which would help a lot with the snow plowing. I saw a guy and his kid way out on Mille Lacs with one and he was moving around pretty darn good with it.

Thanks for the input . I pulled the trigger yesterday and bought a 2017 570 sportsman 6x6 . Seems to have much more stability  than my regular bike . Goes up hill well, but on frozen ground it is not as hard to climb as it is in summer so time will tell ..

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
