Updates to The Groomer Fleet

Piston Bully with Drag-- Added October 2013
The SnoSurfers will be upgrading our groomer fleet in a major way this upcoming winter.  In addition to our Thiokol groomer (Ol' Yellow) we have the following groomers in our fleet:
  1. A second used Thiokol is being prepared.  The turbo-diesel engine is strong, the hydraulic motors were rebuilt last fall, new hydraulic lines were fitted last fall,  and new tracks are being assembled.   This will be a strong running machine, and like the Ol' Yellow, features a flexible blade with widely adjustable wings.  Currently sporting an aged red color, it's undetermined what color she'll be when the snow flies. We have a mogul-master drag ready to go for this grooming machine.
  2. A used Pisten Bully groomer from Maine, with an 9' drag.  The Pisten Bully is a newer machine with a more user-friendly cab layout, and features even more power (turbo-diesel) than the Thiokols. The 8 way blade is capable of shaping the trails with ease.  The cab features a steering wheel and comfortable room for a grooming co-passenger.  This machine is in really good shape and makes an excellent addition to our fleet.  The cab layout and control accessibility should help us train new groom-masters. Thanks to Bill P. for leading the charge on this find!
