    yea like i said i hate driving it ,forgot to say its a 99 will only do 68mph ..... the thing i hate the most with it is the trans , supposed to go 1,2,3 lo then 1,2,3,4,5 hi but you dont even need lo even when loaded unless you were in the mud ..... 4,5 are the worst you got to rev the hell out of it in 3 to only have it fall on its face in 4th the littlest uphill makes it fell as if your going backwards

    It's always awesome loading snow, You can carry SO much in one bucket compared to anything else, just feels huge and awesome

    Tell me, when these trucks are driving their snow load on the road, are they required to tarp?

    and then on the older one we broke one of the rear axles , but i'd say this was because we ended up taking the rear scapers off cause at one point they got bent all to hell from rocks and were chewing up the wheels, not thinking about having issues in the snow.....well one of thecompanys laborers uses it in the snow plowing so im guessing snow ended up getting packed in between the rear wheels putting to much stress on the axle and drive motor breaking it and the turn buckle , cause when i picked it up he had almost spit the track all the way off and there was snow packed all in the wheels .....spend the other weekend fixing it

    Yikes. I'll have to keep an eye on the snow pack in the tracks. Glad you fixed it. The other guy from our area had the same issue I think. Love the white one.:clapping:

    as long as u still have the scrapers on the machine you shouldnt have a problem....and when talking with one of the guys from asv he said it was common enough that they put bigger axles on the new ones and they make a fix for the older ones


    on a side note we talked to our sales guy for the yellow one , if they gave us a good number on the that one as a trade we were gonna trade it in for a 100G but it might be just wishful thinking
