    New service vehicle Northern MN

    Just got this gem for running my remote calls. Extra wide track, wide skis. Goes through anything. I tried to get it stuck last week, and was not successful. Even in 4 of powder and in slush. It just walked through. Ive got a big cargo box coming for tools and parts. It has a tow hitch for pulling the sled for equipment and larger tools.

    We just installed a mini split at a cabin on a remote water access only site. Brought everything in one trip!

    I would get NO work done...
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    A few years ago there was a new poster who lived in northern Alaska who talked about taking a "snow machine" (as Alaskans like to call them) to service calls also. He also said he occasionally had to hop on a bush plane to get to some of his more remote sites.

    I told him welcome to the site. I was looking forward to hearing some of his stories from up there, but I think he only posted a couple of times and then we never heard from him again.

    Several years ago I had to hop on a pontoon boat with my tools to get out to an island on Lake Minnetonka. It was pretty neat, but it sucked being so far away from my service van. If I needed something I needed to ask the old dude to take me back to my van, and the boat was so slow it seemed like it took forever.

    Nice sled. I have been into several remote sites via float plane and/or boat before.
