I have to agree with logstomper. i got a price quote for my BlaZr2 and the track kit was $8,500. witch is about 1/3 that of the mattracks. Also thier parts like the rollers are common boggie wheels you can but at a snowmobile dealer.

I have to agree. the tracks are just off the shelf 121 x 15 and they say the carriage work should last for years.

with their tracks being so common you could upgrade the tracks to a more agressive track like a ripsaw or a paddle track

Those tracks dont look that hard to build yourself. Like they said they just use snowmobile tracks and boggie wheels, it even looks like an off the shelf steel wheel for the drive sproket.

By the way, thanks for the new website links. The videos of this stuff is pretty awsome. And Yetti, did you get a price on those new alpine style sleds?

As for pulling a groomer in fairly deep snow. Is there enough power to weight ratio involved to get the job done? And is there enough torque generated by the truck to do the job unless your looking at a small semi style truck?

It might not be much help now, (April) But i saw a video of an s10 blazer with mattracks pulling a groomer sled. It seemed to pull it no problem. Had all the controls inside the truck for the hyduaulics. It is on youtube if you search mattracks groomer. Just my .02!

Default Trail Grooming

AmericanTrackTruck has more track trucks around Michigan if people are interested in checking one out. They have been grooming great. We are working on getting approved for grooming grants on a state by state basis(already approved in some).
