Default snowmobile??

I found a snowmobile w trailer for 300 bucks so I had to pick it up for ice fishing. the problem is it has 6900 miles on it. I heard that id allot from a snowmobile. The guy I bought it from used it to hall hay to his horses in vail for a couple of years and said it had no problems. So I was just wondering what is the most miles you guys have put on them before they give out.

What type is it? What year and motor?

Snowmobile miles are all different, it is how the sled was used.... Mountain riding hill climbing 10k is about all, trail riding they can go a long long time if you take care of them.

Does it look beat up? Check the clutches, grease everything. just check it over real well.

For $300 bucks, with trailer, and it runs, and still drives.* I'd just take it on out, not worry about it, and have some fun.* *

I bought a snowmobile last year from someone on the forum for $300. It ran great when I had it out. Make sure you have a spare belt with you in case the belt blows. I also got to run it up and down the street a few times during the snow storms last year (check with your city to see if it's legal - lots of fun.) It was a 1986 Arctic Cat Jag - I have no idea how many miles it had but it was great for ice fishing. I elected to sell it last Spring. I think I'll be getting an electric start next time.

Honestly, I think you got a pretty good deal.

A guy that watches over one of our cabins in the UP has a Polaris Indy Tail with 26K miles. Only went thru two sets of slides. My Dads ski-doo formula Z has 13K, and it has been at the bottom of a creek.

I got a 79 DOO Everest L/C for free. Cleaned up and drained fuel and put a new coil on it, with 8700 miles on the speedo. Runs great, pull's ice fishing sled and all the gear great. Top speed 40mph. Still looking for a windshield!! A guy can still can find most parts for old school sleds online with surfing. At some point you will have to stop putting $$ into old school toys, it just wont make sence any longer.

Ice fishing rocks!! Love It!!

Congrats, Rad! Is the trailer a two-sled one? If so, you can help me pull mine up there to go icefishing.* *
