I know what you meant Dick, but I think there is a lot of people driving these in deep snow or even just ice for the first time. Heck it might be the first time they drove anything in snow.
When they see a post saying "these aren't made for snow" its the mantra they will adopt, if they don't want to put the work in to correct the issue. I don't think that's fair to what I think is one of the best traction to the ground vehicles I've ever driven.
I have fielded probably 50 PM's this week on this subject along with the posts... I feel like I'm stuck in this snow right along with them.
I'm just trying to convey that the Pioneer is only part of the equation. You need to be willing to add and subtract from that equation to get it to equal what you want.
Some people like the stock tires. I don't. I saw how they affected my King Quad. It went from being a goat in the snow, to spinning its tires trying to back up in 4 inches of the stuff.
For some, tires aren't the answer. More time behind the wheel in these conditions is. For some weight in the back, for others, braking in the tires or maybe let the air out.
I regularly drive with the belly dragging in the snow. It does it. I have video of it climbing a snow bank. I have video of it climbing a pile of overburden covered in snow and it never spun a tire. The machine will do it people.
Don't get down on yourselves or your new machine. Don't stand in the garage beating your head against the wall. You can do this.
Why do people call you Moose? Cause calling me Elk sounded funny
