      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

2003 Bombardier Traxter Max XT

Recommended Posts

Did you actually find one of these. I would really like one for doing work around the farm and hunting. Heres what I wrote in another thread.

Yeah the 835lbs is right, there heavy machines. Built like tanks. I use to work at a place that had a 5 traxters. We would use them year round. Most of our machines had between 7,000-10,000 miles on them. But we did have a couple new ones that had less than 500 miles. Over all these machines are the BEST work machine ever made, IMO. And I've rode pretty much all of them. There geared low with a strong motor. Top speed is maybe 50mph which is fast enough for me. The step-through design is nice if your getting on and off the machine alot. The front basket is nice for throwing tools into. The rear rack can handle a ton of weight, we would put two full size guys on the back rack and then have the driver so a total of three guys, the suspension handled it good, however steering became a problem because with that much weight on the back would cause the front tires to lift up. Our machines were rolled down hills, set on fire(because guys would be welding next to them), and abused alot. Sure some of the were rickety but they still ran and got the job done. I dont know if I would want it for just a trail machine but for a work machine they are awesome, seem to last a long time and reliable. If one came my way at the right price I would probably pick one up, especilly if it was the XL version(thats the one with the box on the back). Oh yeah the ES shifter is really nice.

My brother has a Traxter and I borrow it for ice fishing. Works great, it realy impressed me on how much snow I could go thru. We do have chains on the rear. It was a little hard to start on a real cold day so we added a primer kit from the dealer and the problem was solved.

I think it cost about $35.00. It connects to the carb. When you pump it it gives a little squirt of gas into the carb. Some of the older snowmobiles used to have them. It took about an hour to install.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
