Re: ATV Question - Deep Snow Hunt

Thanks for the input.

Seeing as how a Ranger 6X6 is $14k, new other new options introduced in ya'll's posts not some nice options.

Main concern is bogging down in the snow. The advantage of the 6x6 is the 2k lb payload. The down side is the 1500+ pounds of standard weight.

Bog that down and yur in trouble.

When I priced tracks for my Habit Invasion Vehicle - Carrier (HIV-Carrier) read Suzuki SideKick it came to 24,000 dollars. That would make the tracks worth well over 10X the value of the vehicle.

The suggestion of a large 4X4 with the tracks pulling a reasonable size trailer and as much cable on a front winch that one can get may do the trick.

Your input is well accepted.

Re: ATV Question - Deep Snow Hunt

I also have a Kubota RTV900 Diesel. It also has tracks on it. It is slow with tracks but I have never been stuck ever with it. I would never take it in the Mtn's because it would not side hill well. The ATV is my favorite. I paid $4200 for the tracks on the Kubota and $3900 for the ones on the ATV. I love it.

I've been snooping around.

The lltetrack from Mattrack is around 3900 bucks and have a weight limit of 3500 lbs gross. They show them for mini trucks.

As I have no intention of ever getting off the road, snow shoes for that, I'm bettin' I can get a set for my Sidekick which is well under 2500 #s.

Good advice.
