Dude, that thing is awesome, nice work on the mods!

So what do you have to do to get unstuck, dig it out a ramp to climb up onto? What if you are over like 6 foot of snow?

just gotta dig the front end down a bit or get the rear on some fresh snow. they dont get stuck easily.

heres a good video showing how much of a beast these things are.

only reason i got stuck up there was the ski got caught in that barrel. and the track dug all the way down to the ground (4+ feet) giving it no snow to bite.

And THAT is why I am snowchecking a 2014 800 PRO RMK when spring rolls around...provided my truck doesn't give me any big issues between now and then. I'm always amazed by the pros. What they can do is truly mind blowing.
