I was kinda worried about range when I got it. It will go a long ass ways on a tank of gas I know that.

I donít really have pictures of the machine but I got pictures of the places it has taken us.

I have trouble loading pictures but I will see if I can.

The tracks are awesome, that thing will go anywhere with them on. The stability is unreal. It is slow though, but when you are going through several feet of snow it no biggie. They come off as soon as the mud is gone in the spring.

Natural gas


I can heat my house for 10 years with what one of them fancy log splitter things cost and all I have to do is walk over to the little box hanging on the wall and touch it.


No getting wet, dirty, bitten or broken.
