Hello folks....aren't you excited? Snow is right around the corner! My only intrest in a snow machine is for work/utility/fishing/hunting. I've always been a fan of all the work sleds but really only have experience with The Polaris Widetraks. I've been really eyeballin the bearcat 440's (used), the smaller bravos, skandics, and tundras lately. I've also considered the long tracked polaris 340's as a possible work sled too considering the 340's are light, good on fuel, and can be geared down. I would be interested in what other's think of their paticular work sleds. I hope this doesnt turn into a pissin contest because all sleds can break down. I'm quite fond of my Widetrak LX but I sure don't like it's cable powered brake......it's kind of scary when you try to stop this sled with a large load....could've really used a hydrolic brake. I guess they've fixed that issue with the later models as mine is a 2000 model. With that said.....the 488 liquid cooled motor is decent on fuel and has been flawless and tough as nails.
