Is this legal

Recommended Posts

Not sure but I did get a chuckle out of a legal question asked by someone named Slammer:grin:

 

If I remember correctly they need to be registered as snowmobiles and not ATV's to be legal although personally I cannot see why it wouldn't be.

So it boils down to a license thing........?  My wife is not a lawyer but she stayed at a Holiday Inn last week so I refer all legal stuff to her.:P

The dual tracks and width difference....they'd find a reason.

Yea i kinda thought it would be a no go on trails.  It looks like a good alternative to a snowmobile.   They claim better performance with only two tracks and the skis help keep you up on top of snow.  Price is a bit less than buying 4 tracks.  Interesting.

Take her for a run down a trail and let us know? :lol:

I think most of it is a width issue?

I don't have them.  Thinking about it though.  Don't have a sled so this would give me best of both.

Another one .  Some guy in the neighborhood had one of these many years ago.  I think it was broke down more than it was driven.

They always reminded me of something they would have in a James Bond movie. 

 

I would think that with the emergence of the UTV market and all the Ice Castles that something like that modernized would really take the market by storm.

That would be a great rig for ice fishing I would think. :)

The old twin track sleds were kind of cool but really hard to lean them when side hilling! Lol

I read that the reason the design was abandoned is the machines did well in the water and in soft ground or snow, but they didn't work out on dry land.

 

But to get the thread back on topic, I know Ski-Doo made at least two different models of twin tracked machines also - the Alpine and the Everest.

Ski Doo made a Twin track elite in the early 2000s Not a bad looking rig. In maine you can register your atv/ utv as a sled if you have tracks. I have done this for several years. Don't ride much on busy trails though.

    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
    • The cost of some new boats is outrageous.  I've always questioned the sanity of dropping $30,000, 40,000, 50,000 on a boat when there are so many solid used boats available for a small fraction.  The used boats may need a bit of work or maybe even a complete rebuild down the road but even then you'd still be ahead $20,000.  These older boats fish just fine as well only down side is it might take you an extra 5-10 minutes to get to your fishing spot.
    • To all us dead beat bas-ters that go hunting and fishing and sit on the computer all day! Oh and had sex a few times!   Keep up the good work guys!    Had to put it here because there is no General thread. Plus no wives will be looking in the Home Improvement thread for us!!!
    • I actually bought the electronic controller off E-b-a-y and it just came in the mail today. I will install it sometime soon.     Agreed.
    • Would you rather be signing for a $40-50,000 plus interest loan? I think you will see many more people going this route, I know I will. A more profitable business might be buying and reselling used boat for this purpose.  Bruledrifter, great job, and smart decision.
    • It’s the cost of doing it. There’s a lot of putzy, tedious grunt work involved that makes these projects take a lot longer than one would think. Just to replace a floor requires a complete strip down and rebuild.    I wish i would have kept track of my hours I put into this, but I think a safe guess would be at least 150 hours, plus materials.... I’d have to charge 3-5 grand, at least. I’m sure some would pay it, but not many.
