    WTF! Anbody ever seen or used one of these little groomer rigs? Might work for sidewalks but for $11000 you could have a descent skid steer and use it year around.

    Anyway, found this interesting since I have a background in snowmobile trail grooming. Its just a little thing but it has a Ford 300 CID 6 cyl!

    There is nothing better to do sidewalks. Its like a tank. They move around 30MPH. Next time out i'll video one. I have 2 of them, mine for sale at 8 grand Canadian.

    I could deliver to Lake George, thats about 3 hrs south of us. If your really interested send me a private message and well talk.
    Canadian is almost equal to the American, depending on the day. I just checked 8000.00 CDN = 8031.08 USD
