    Snowmobiling in Northern Wisconsin today and ran across this groomer in Mercer,WI. They use the blades to pull snow back on the trail mainly in the corners.

    That looks like a wicked nice set up. I have all ways wanted to drag trails with a big groomer or a tractor with tracks.

    One min. I will upload a pic up the Straits Area club groomer.

    I really like this picture, because I have pics of the same tractor, in the same spot, when it was brand new, and I was up there alone with my 4 month old son.

    IMO I would have thought that a 10' Vee would have been a better choice to cut through heavy drifts but what do I know ... lol

    Found our missing snow

    Looks like I found our missing snow, you guys are hoarding it to make snowmobiling trails.. don't you guys know there is a world wide snow recession going on ?

    My aunt in Denmark says they are having the same weather as us, no snow.....

    Now come on and share.... you have had you fun....tymusic

    Is there a skid plate in the front of that JD groomer ?? looks like all the weight is near the nose of that rig ??

    The plate on the front of the one I posted is the front plow / grooming blade.

    It also has a sled groomer that is pulled behind it, almost like in the OP pictures.

    Ya, a 10' V would be better I think. You could cut through drifts easier and you could scoop the snow and put it in an area that needs it.

    So, how many members in the club does it take to buy equipment like that?

    Definitely need to have scoop plows only!! don't want to be pushing snow offthe trails. Up here I have only ever seen bombardier or similar tracked machines with scoop plows.

    Similar to this, but that's just a google image

    I don't believe you that was in Wisconsin...:) Cool rig, I've seen some New Hollands set up with tracks but not with a blade.
