...4 wheelers with tracks are a wast of time and money i think how much is a set of tracks 3 or 4 grand .. You can buy heck of a nice sled for 3k I would go snowmobile hands down .. it's kinda like trying to take your house cat hunting it's not a hunting dog and it's not going to work like one well that's my opinion not worth much

I think you might be selling ATVs with tracks a little short, at least in certain conditions. Link

Looks like the tracks would be a certain kind of fun, but that video was hardly a fair comparison. Any good sled rider would have killed it in that snow. Clearly they were promoting the ATV with tracks, but maybe that was the point. To ride a snowmobile off the beaten path, you have to be able to muscle it around i.e. shift your body weight to lean into turns. I am often off the seat standing straddling the seat or with both legs on either side to make a turn After a few hours of aggressive sled riding, you definitely get tired.

This is my first year ice fishing with a Snowmobile (1998 Polaris RMK 700) and truthfully it is a night and day difference. No hesitation on my part. Snowmobile all the way. My BIL has a quad and rarely feels like he can take it out on the ice.
