Woody tested pulling a trailer 3/4 full through 12" of no traction sugar snow. The test was successful. We have hauled a couple of full loads since then.

Have you done this and do the people on sleds give you the stink face? I just got a sportsman 570 and we have trails right near our cabin (langlade county). I haven seen any four wheelers on the trails. I just got the 570 in December and we ran it on the roads (atv routes) so far. We only get up there about once a month in the winter... But that may change as we now have a 4 season toy... The other toy is a boat.

Counties have local ordinances that govern snowmobile and atv trails but 28 degrees is the general standard. The link below is for Langlade county.

I replaced the battery with an AGM battery. I greased the front axles and drive shaft u-joints. I was surprised to see the rear drive shaft did not have zerk fittings on the u-joints. Then I hauled a couple trailer loads of wood.

What is the HP rating of my 2003 700 twin? I searched the web and checked my manual with no luck.

I think it's around the 45 hp max (stock) and that's at about 5800 rpm's.... from what I found.
