I drove a friends 650 Cat with the TJD tracks, pulling a groomer and it went pretty good, curious how the 500 would handle it. His didnt do any trail damage, but I wasnt just cruising with it . I dont think it will do as much damage as the snowmobiles do. Im looking for power (torque I guess) not speed. Gas mileage is not a major factor. I will also be doing trail maintence with this setup. I think I am going to go this route rather than buying a utility snowmobile to groom with than having another machine to maintain. Thanks guys! I love this site!

Forgot to comment on the legal trail riding in NY, I was told once that to ride on State Land the terminology stated "tracked" vehicle, Im sure they meant snowmobile, but Im gonna look into it.

Hey Craig,

The little bit of snowmobiling that I have done was mostly in the U.P. of Michigan, mostly in the Keweenaw Peninsula (Houghton/Hancock, Calumet, Copper Harbor, etc). The trail groomers that I saw up there were the large tracked deals that pull a drag and I think there was enough room in the cab for 2 people. Could a guy like you argue that your atv WITH the tracks is no different than the big trail groomers, especially when you are using it for trail grooming?

Just a thought,
Craig

Im gonna talk to some of the Enviromental Conservation Cops the next time I see them around. I most likely wont be grooming on State Land, just private land, but it will be interesting to see what they say.

Craig, I think blu by u is correct in making that argument. If tracks are good enough for the groomers, your atv should cause no problems to them. Technically speaking with those tracks the ground pressure your machine produces with them is going to be way less than those groomers, them buggers weigh ALOT!!!
