snowmobile vs. four wheeler
 
if you live in maine i can't decide which would be better to own....the winters are shorter than summer but winters can drive you stircrazy if you don't have something to do!!!! what do you think?

you will get a lot more use out of a four wheeler then a snowmobile

Yeah but you can use a sled in the summer too if you're gonna drag race it. Some folks dig that stuff. :-)

4 wheeler by far. You can use it year round and you can get a plow so you don't have to shovel. :)

Get a 4 wheeler,,, and tracks! The best of both worlds.

Go with a snowmobile. There's so much more stuff to do in the summer. 4 wheelers aren't allowed on most trails in the winter so they wouldn't be able to go as many places.

Thats where the tracks come in, a buddy of mine has a four wheeler and tracks and it is registered as a four wheeler and as a snow machine.

I bought a Compact tractor with a front end loader and a snowblower, with a cab, you can use it year long. :)

I've had both and I miss my sled the most. I'd rather be in the Bronco than on a wheeler.

Four wheeler would get more use. We haven't had that much snow and the rivers still aren't frozen. As a matter of fact 3 snowmobiles just fell thru the ice last week.

CheapJ's got it right!
All year long (maybe not always with atachments on tho).

Sled. The Jeep, when I get another one, is my spring-to-fall machine.

Just moved to maine this summer... snowmobiles came first. Got a tractor with a bucket when we got the house, so that takes care of snowplow duties and hauls wood out to cut/split for winter. Tons of things to do in the summer that don't need a motor (canoeing, kayaking, hiking, etc), and yes we have snowshoes, xc skis and snowboards, but the sleds were a welcome investment!

I grew up with four wheelers. Never had a snowmobile. Even though it was frowned upon to use my 4wheeler on snowmobile trails it was just too easy. I was young so I couldn't buy anything else but it was still a good time. Lots of great trails all over in Grey/New Gloucester area

Sled.......... :2thumbup:

ATVs
 
SnowMobiels are Useless unless you like getting stuck all the time in some godforsaken swamp or ditch and killing yourself trying to pull start thehe cantankorous nosiy beasts.

You can only use then a few weeks during the year If there is enough snow.

You cant haul dirt or cordwood with them and they dont have the power to haul a Moose or deer out of the woods.

ATVs can go most anywhere and haul ****. I have a winch on the front & back and made a dual Rifle rack and pull a Trailer on the back of mine for Manure, Firewood, Dirt and whatever else.

I also haul a Lime Fertilizer Spreader.

Im rigging up a Box Plow to be able to plow up a garden.

You can get lots more attachments for ATVs!

I haul my boat trailer around the yard with the ATV. You cant do that with a SkiDoo.

And the People who drive ATVs just are a nicer group of sportsman. Not Whiny, Yuppies.

And Yea I do drive my ATV in the Snow with no problem.
