    Hello all, does anyone use a snowmobile in their operations in any way shape or form?

    By the way I have a 1994 Arctic Cat Wildcat 700 EFI for sale in Western Maryland - $1800 excellent condition, will deliver. Email me at westernmdlawn@hotmail.com

    Thanks!!

    I don't use one in my business but after I am done pushing the snow, then I go play in it.

    I actually asked a similar question recently about snowcats, but basically the reasoning behind snowmobiles is the same:

    Snowmobiles can't really be used to plow, because they need snow on the ground to actually be able to move without ruining the thing. If they have a plow, and they're pushing the snow off, then there's nothing on the ground for it to run on and you risk severely damaging your snowmobile.
