Not good in slush.
Snowmobile will get you stuck, just further out from shore!
I have had mine since 2017.

I have had mine since 2017.
Standard model with reverse.
Hauling extra sleds and people depends on conditions.
I have hauled three sled tents plus snow dog sled, and three people across ice with little snow with no problems at all.
I did put studs in my track to grip better on ice.

Kent,

This one will get good traction in the deepest of slush and snow:

Let's go fishing! I prefer to fish with others. I'm well equipped with plenty to share and have a vehicle with amazing off road and winter driving capabilities to get us to even hard to reach fishing and ice fishing destinations. Let's team up! Private Message me to suggest I come to where you're fishing or plan a trip with me!

Who here is a surf fisherman? That's my next big vacation. I've already purchased top equipment for surf fishing. I'm looking to hire a guide or go with someone experienced.

Date proposal to single young BFT fisherladies with courage enough to put a worm on a hook: Tuesday, November 20: Movie: FORD VERSUS FERRARI with Dinner and IMAX Luxury seats at the Jordan Commons in Sandy I can pick you up or meet you there.

Thanks for the suggestion but because "...the Ripsaw might feature 16 inches of suspension travel to soak up some rough terrain, but this thing weighs 7,750 lb" I don't think I want to take it out on our local ice anytime soon. Sure would be fun in the snow though, but alas I needed a vehicle for ice fishing.

I also saw that it's too heavy, but posted it because it's a fun video to watch and you won't get stuck in anything EXCEPT for thin ice over deep reservoirs.

If we had the cold of some of the ice fishing states where people drive on the much thicker ice with their cars and trucks, an off road capable vehicle would be a good ice fishing vehicle.

So if I were looking at a machine and I am itís going to be a ski-doo Skandic 550F 154x20x1.5. With electric start along with pull start and reverse.


Thank you Kim for that advice. Today at Strawberry it was extremely difficult to walk because of the deep snow and the slush; however, my Ski-Doo Skandic handled it like I was driving on a groomed trail!Smile

Once you know everything about anything its what you learn afterwards that counts.

Skunked, we never get skunked its the fish getting skunked as they just kept missing our lures.
