      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.

    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
