Gearing Up for Snowmobile Season

Derek VanNamee

Snow is right around the corner, and if you have a snowmobile be sure to either take it somewhere or look over it yourself.  It’s important to do this because you want your machine to be reliable and you do not want to be that person stuck on the side of the trail because you didn’t check over your snowmobile. When looking over your snowmobile, you should be checking your oils and fluids, belt, sparkplugs, and wires. If you notice anything that doesn’t look right you should fix it before hitting the trails. If you are stuck on the trail it’s always good to have a tool kit for your model snowmobile. Extra spark plugs and oil are important too because there are things that go wrong on the trail that you can fix with a simple tool kit. Even before getting on the trail while your snowmobile is warming up you can look it over and make sure everything is good to go. Riders, be safe out there on the trails this year.
