Quite a bit to go wrong, but boy, if it worked right, what a BLAST....

LOL Does look good but can't imagine how much that thing is going to cost, Godly amounts for the Kraken.......

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

Well, it's based on one of the RapidTrak's with the 28" being the smallest one at $3099 & the 32" at $3399. There's our starting point(s).

I don't think we'll see this in regular production anytime soon, if ever. I can't imagine the demand would be there.

Just an awful lot of drooling and frothing at the mouths.....

That is cool! They'd sell a bunch just because of the front-mounted light bar !!

I wish that Ariens would negotiate a licencing agreement with Yamaha.
That in itself would probably double or triple their annual sales for sure.
