Updates to The Groomer Fleet
Post date: Nov 2, 2013 11:45:40 PM
- 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: 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.
- 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!
