How is the clearance on those? Just wondering how it would do when there is a good amount of snow. Do you use chains?

I've got a buddy who has one on LOTW, and he has the tracks on it. It's awesome as long as you don't freeze on the ride, and he has the cab. His is only a 500cc so a bit wimpy with the tracks on it, but very fun and convenient.

I have the Ranger HD. Does great for ice fishing. Plow my own road to where I want to put the house and then pull the house out.

Nice set-up!

Where did you get the tire chains for the Ranger?

Yeah they work pretty good, easier to get around in the deep snow off the roads. Cab and heat are a added bonus.

V-Bar chains can be found at Fleet Farm, also. They used to carry 2 different sizes, too.

That's the setup I want as well. Just not sure if the tracks are worth it or not. Tires and chains would be more in the budget!! smile

Rangerware heater works great, two ducts for your feet and a defroster duct. As long as the ranger is running and building heat your good. We've been out -20 and have had no issues. Full cabs aren't that expensive you just have to know where to buy from. Fwiw... I wouldn't own a steel cab, too heavy and I'm not a fan of rusting. Fish house will not fit into the box, I just use a tow hitch.
