After dragging my ice sled and shanty over dry parking lots, sidewalks, yards , roads,foottrails etc down to the not so thick ice last year.....than dragging everything back uphill, struggling all the way....i decided to build a wheeled cart to make things easier. But before i got started, i got one from my sisters neighbor who was throwing it out because they were moving.....a  wheeled, lightweight garbage can cart.! I tried it out this summer in my yard...it worked great.
 But we will probably have a snowy ice season.....so get your smitty sleds ready.  Or maybe a Cold, snowy ice season...so ATV's and snomobiles will be the ticket again! Time will tell.

Filet...I can't get mine started, and don't have it registered..... snomobile might be the only way to go this year.,if it gets cold , and then keeps snowing up there... You might have the mid lake shoals and deep water eye and perch mother lode all to yourself !! cheesy

It's a 99 arctic cat z 440...I've had it for about 8 years.i 've got gas to the plugs, but can't get it to fire. Pull and pull and pull...no good. I took plugs out and cleaned them several times...no good.I tried full choke/ half choke/ no choke....no good. I guess i'll have to take to the sled shop.... Unless....Do you know any tricks i can try ? Never tried starting fluid...should I ? Any advice would be appreciated...

  maybe get hold of me some time choo choo, i work on small engines also. first you need spark, fuel, compression. if you get spark, you can try the starting fluid, i just use carb cleaner. good luck!

New plugs every year plus a spare set in the tool spot on the sled.
