    Those might change the angle of the A-frame a little to much.

    Too much shoveling at the install for it to have any real benefit

    Cool idea...but it is old old news.

    Fordson

    1929 that was before my mom was born, some of your grandmas.

    Of course it was Ford who came up with this. I am surprised they did not stick around. If I had a better machine shop and time I might try and build one.

    If you look close the raptor is only in vergien snow about 5-10% of the time and when going down hill.

    Other wise its on snow that has been packed down by a snow-cat, you can see the windrow left by the snow-cat and the path in most of the shots.
    Yes they are drifted in but there is a base for traction and support.

    Just don't want anyone to think you can just go anywhere with it.

    But yea cool :Thumbs Up

    ^A lot of folks are useing them to groom snowmobile trails, XC trails,
    Some flatland ski hills to. Some are useing Matt/tracks on trucks
    To do XC and snowmobile trails too

    With out the flotation \ traction they can have issues going up hill or side hill in
    The mountains.
