    Posted one month ago by mboncher
    Truth be told, when the AmSnow crew first saw the most recent update from Ski-Doo on the 2017 model year drive belt issue (see very bottom of this article), we were perplexed. No doubt we will probably get lambasted on the good ol' Faceplace and World Wide Interweb for saying this, but in our experience (several thousand miles on separate new 850 units) we did not experience any belt issues on our MXZ or Renegade trail sleds. Surprisingly, our Western crew did not experience any premature is...

    Camso Unveils New ATV Track System

    Posted 2 months ago by Emily Hare
    Snowmobilers know better than anyone that where tires sink, tracks provide much-needed flotation and superior traction. Whether it’s heading off to that remote hunting cabin, checking the farm fence line, or exploring the backcountry on the weekend, tracks outperform tires in snow and mud. For some owners of older or smaller all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), however, track system options are somewhat expensive for their intended use. Camso hopes to change that with its new ATV R4S (recreationa...
