Kit Turns ATV into a Snow Machine
The steel grouser-equipped 12-in. wide tracks mount over existing rear wheels and a set of add-on wheels that mount on a pivoting axle attached to the rear of the ATV. Requires no modification. "Other manufacturers have developed tracks for ATV's but ours are the first that pivot from side to side for smooth riding over even the roughest terrain," notes Carlson.
To install the up-front 5?-in. wide skis, simply remove the ATV wheels and bolt them to the spindles. When spring comes, you can remove the snow kit in minutes.
"ATV's have more pulling power than many snowmobiles because of their multi-geared transmissions," says Carlson. The kit sells for $1,495 and installs on any 3 or 4-wheeler equipped with a rear hitch (the rear add-on axle attaches to the hitch). Works best with higher horsepower models (200 cc's and above).
