what do you mean by not too bad? not as heavy like a 92 skandic? but not as light as like a tundra? almost the weight of a safari? also in the pictures it looks like a longer track, or is it just a shortened seat?

Quite heavier than a Safari. It's liquid cooled, so add the weight of the cooling system to it.

You could be right on the track and that doesn't look like a C7 skid. I have a 95 and think it's heavy. Probably because of the C7. It has reverse so it's not that much of an issue but it's not going to be a powder hound.

After looking closer, that could be a C7 but it definitely has some kind of extension on it.

Reverse was offered on the MXs but I think it was an option. I think paddles will always help in the deeper snow but there are limits to the size you can put on any sled without additional modifications.

Again, it looks like this has rail and tunnel extensions on it along with bar risers so the track is likely upgraded as well. Maybe mod'ed for climbing?

it looks like the xtc package. definately not a 121 and the biggest track you can put on it without changing driver i believe is 1 1/4

i don't think i will do good in deep powder at all. track looks like stock 3/4 or 7/8 lugs. you will have to drop the skid some to get a 1.75 in there also. then again it's only a 470 and won't have a ton of power to get you out. best bet is keep looking.

Thats more of a trail sled. There all right in some powder, but you will get stuck if its anything of a challenge. I have this exact sled with electric start. Any sled is heavy when your stuck!

sounds like it should have the power but when it gets stuck it'll be a bitch to lift.

When in doubt, throttle out!

Its not a MX if it has that motor in it. Or I'll say its not stock at least. I have a 93 670 Mach 1. There a rocket ship on the trail. In the powder their like taking a mustang to the duck blind. If your a good powder rider you'll get by. You'll be tired by the end of the day from throwing it around all day. You can put a wider ski on the front that will help. Remember, back in the day of these machines we took them in the powder, we had fun and yes we got stuck. Heck I got stuck two weeks ago with a newer Summit 800 H.O. So its part of the fun.

As far as the 670. Crank Seals and bearings were a big thing with them. Want to keep them in check, as those old 670 cranks are hard to come by anymore if you keep the sled. but for $700.00 it may be a run it and junk it if it fails option.

Only other advice I have for for ya is, never pass up a gas pump. Those big carbs enjoy the cool refreshing drink of unleaded cocktail....... Good Luck!
