I've been stuck to many times.... and it's VERY heavy.. as you all know!

What's the consensus on snow tracks?
Who makes em?
Who sells em?
What's best?
What do you look for when buying?
What will you spend?


Just a couple questions.... lol

When the snow depth exceeds the ground clearence of the a arms you stop.

LOL,yes of course.... but you don't always have the luxury of JUST turning back....

Which is why I started this thread! :)

Can't really use my ATV on the snowmobile trails that get me to the deep snow here at home. ATV's are not allowed but I actually wonder about an atv with tracks. I just hop on one of my sleds. This year, there is so much snow, I'd be high centered a lot with tracks.

LOL! My 550xp gets stuck in this years deep stuff. We should have the same ground clearance and thats the problem. Not enough ground clearance, or too deep of snow!!

Not sure what part of Canada you live in, but there was a set of tracks on Craigslist in Maine for $2500 from an 850.

it seems those who have them, love them. for me i wouldnt use them enough to justify the purchase.

I'm just south of Chicago and I got buddies that are having a hard time with their sleds in this snow. 2 ft of fresh powder is rough for lots of machines

Polaris and camoplast (tatou 4s) both make track sets for the Polaris. Both have good reviews and little to no issues from what I've read.

I've also read on this forum that a member was told by his dealer that anything other than Polaris tracks would void his warranty. While I think that's a load of crap, it is something to consider if that situation is applicable to you as well.


Rather be riding, instead I'm using Tapatalk

I wasn't quite sold on them till I tried some and it was game on! I run sleds to but their mountain machines and I don't want to tear them up riding them down home. I bought a slightly used set of Polaris tracks for $2500 with the mounting hardware they work great, not sure what I would do if I got stuck with them on but that hasn't happened yet so no worries LOL.

In WA state it isn't legal to ride any vehicle that didn't come from the factory with rear track(s) and front skis on officially groomed snowmobile trails. I've always wanted to pick up one of these Ski Doo Elites since it would be legal. IIRC they have two sled tracks in back.







Even the older models would be cool.
