Hey old Big Wolf,glad to see you are still thinking.I am impressed the way you study things out and I appreciate your open-mindedness.Personally I usually have to learn things the hard way. Today was a nice example. I took off my tracks and put those big, tall 27 in High-Lifters back on.I needed to know how they would do in this sloppy-wet snow. I done pretty well in the stuff until I decided to dive off in to about half-way-to-the-butt stuff.I am glad it was in my yard and no one seen it. I am also glad for that 4500 lb. wench. My neighbor has been getting stuck in his snowmachine, but not nearly as stuck as I got.I was glad that I could wench myself at a 90 degree angle. I was able to do it as I reversed my wheels and spun around.I do believe that I can wench at more than the 90 degrees. I'll probably find out if I keep messing around in this stuff.I do these things to see just how much I can do. It is like when I learned to fly, I practiced stalls so I could learn how to deal with them.This is the way I learn what my abillities are and what my machine can do.I much rather get stuck up here on my mountain than in some swamp 30 miles back in the pucker-brush.It is also a good idea to have someone handy that can jank you out.
So far I haven't been able to break anything on this critter. If something is weak, I will find it.I really would rather use the big tires this moose season because they are better in the rivers and lakes. They also work well in most boggs and tall grass.What I would like to do is get my dogs on a good rubber track. I'll keep looking.Gravel is rough on these plastic tracks, and I don't like the noise.Well, I'm off to do some more playing.
