• Poll: If your sled broke could you fix it?

    snowmobile repair on the trail
    Feb 15, 2014

    Snowmobiles are machines, and machines break. Usually when you need them most. Just like cars, the mechanics of snowmobiles have become more complicated, although some of the basics are still in place.

    This questions revolves around your ability or willingness to escape the woods if your snowmobile decided to stop dead on the trail. Could you or would you fix it?

      I have begun using my GPS to mark all of the trails in Otis (Knox Trail Snow Riders trails), and after reading this article, I will begin marking gas, intersections, clubhouse, etc. Has anyone else out there begun doing the same either in Otis or some other part of Mass? I think I will mark the entrances to private trails as well as an overlay so that if you come up on an unmarked intersection you will be able to determine which is the marked trail and which is private.

      I do a lot of preventative maintenance also. Only 2 problems I’ve had on the trail was a blown heat exchanger (made it back to the trailer) and a blown head gasket (had to tow it out). I’m confident in my skills, but I do carry a tow strap.
