The further you go — THE BETTER THE CATCH!

Have you ever been on ice fishing? Have you ever tried walking 5 – 10 km on ice through snow up to your knees with a boer, tackle and other equipment? And what if the fish doesn`t take the bait?. The SnowDog is what you need. You can comfortably sit in an ergonomic sled with all your stuff and ride when ever and where ever you want. Or use it when you are out hunting so you can go through a forest where a large vehicle won’t pass and transport you prey back. And of course the SnowDog can be used at home for collecting firewood, or just having fun. A snowdog is a type of vehicle first invented in Canada in the 1950’s. In the beginning of the 60’s Hus Ski and Bolens has been mass-produced in North America. In the 70’s snowmobiles became more popular in the USA and Canada and gradually replaced the motor towing vehicles.

We believe that these vehicles have great potential and have developed our own version of this amazing vehicle.

“THE SNOWDOG HAS CAUSED MORE EXCITEMENT WITH OUR DEALERS AND THEIR CUSTOMERS THAN ANY PRODUCT WE’VE HAD IN MY 30 YEARS IN THE POWER EQUIPMENT INDUSTRY. IT IS A NEW PRODUCT CATEGORY IN A MARKET THAT SEES VERY FEW NEW IDEAS. AT 1/3RD THE PRICE OF A SNOWMOBILE, IT WILL GO THROUGH DEEP SNOW, ICE, MARSH, AND PRAIRIE OR FOREST. NO NEED FOR A TRAILER BECAUSE THE SNOWDOG FITS IN THE BACK OF AN SUV. IT IS SAFE, SIMPLE TO OPERATE, EASY TO MAINTAIN AND FUN TO RIDE. THE POTENTIAL MARKET IS HUGE! THE SNOWDOG APPEALS TO ICE FISHERMEN, HUNTERS, CAMPERS, CABIN OWNERS AND NATURE LOVERS. WE BELIEVE IT WILL BE A BIG ADDITION TO OUR SALES THIS YEAR AND IN THE YEARS TO COME!”

“ I`ve been trying to groom trails for the last 4 years. Tried with a regular snowmobile- couldn't keep up enough speed to keep it from bogging down and it was unable to reach even half the trails, used a Rokon 2 wheel drive off road utility bike, it had the power and maneuverability, but when trying to tow a drag and the small footprint of the tires, it was not worth the effort. Then I went back to a snowmobile: smaller, shorter, but still had trouble even reaching half the trails.

Last year, I received a grooming grant, and with the help of the dedicated riders we were able to raise about $2400 allowing me to buy a used Ski Doo Alpine and the necessary trailer. It worked, could reach about half of my trails, but still not good enough.

I had been looking at track sled videos in Russian for the last few years, even tried to get a local guy to rig one up for me, but no luck. Then I learnt about SnowDog and got a Compact B10ZE. What I like about it- it's simple, well thought out, the pull and electric start, the way the handlebars can be adjusted, it's weight allows for it to be moved easily either on the trail or in the garage. I store it right in my truck bed, so when Winter drops another 4-5 inches I can hop on the grooming effort. It's nice that it's a tried and true engine, and the design is well thought out, I've been able to groom sideslope trails, and the learning curve for operation is rather short. After 20-30 minutes you can move about the trails quite well.

Only suggestions I can give is a higher setting for the handlebars, it would be more comfortable for myself if they were about 4 inches higher. Everything else is great, it's stable, the center of gravity is what it is, i've tipped it a few times and the engine cuts out due to the oil, but that is planned safety, so no issues, once I get it upright, it starts within 5-10 seconds.”

“We purchased our SnowDog about a month ago. It has exceeded every expectation that we had! We are devoted ice fisherman and the SnowDog is now a key part in our everyday fishing. Pulling a couple hundred pounds of fishing equipment by hand is not easy or fun... Especially when the fish aren’t biting and you have to move several times… The SnowDog has given us the capabilities to make fishing more enjoyable. With it being able to pull several ice shanties and several people (over 1000 lbs), we can enjoy the trip out each time. Not to mention the time saved – Going 20+mph across the lakes definitely beats walking! The SnowDog has also helped us reach places that we could not before. With the studded track on this machine, we have been able to travel across large snow covered lakes (or just the slick ice without snow) and also reach lakes surrounded by steep hills with ease! We are able to go wherever we want thanks to our SnowDog. With it being so simple and safe to operate, the entire family can enjoy it as well! We load up the SnowDog right into our Hitch Hauler on the truck, which makes an easy trip without the hassle of a trailer. We would highly recommend a SnowDog to any outdoors enthusiast. Whether you are ice fishing, hunting, or just a nature person with the love of engines, the SnowDog is the perfect machine for you!”

"It`s been two years since I got my SnowDog. I find it reliable and able to do hard work. And these are the qualities I value in it. Some compare motor tow to snowmobile, but it`s like comparing a truck to a race car - these vehicles have different purposes. Sport snowmobiles are powerful, and they go fast travelling light. As for SnowDog it easily tows up to 1000 lbs, one day it towed me, two of my friends and a large cargo, and did great. I am a fisherman, and riding SnowDog, I can easily get to any part of the lake, and if there`s no fish there, just jump back into the sleds and change location in minutes. If the snow is 3-5 ft, I may have to ride light first, and then take a heavy cargo with me on the well-trodden path. When I go fishing I usually take a can of gas with me just in case. The gulf here is huge and sometimes I can`t find any fish, and my friends call me and tell me it bites there, so I travel 10-15 miles to get to their spot. With cruising speed at 15-20 mph I can get around pretty fast. And what is more, SnowDog is a perfect machine for family fun. Last winter, thanks to SnowDog, me, my friends and our families had a blast spending time outside. One time we connected 13 children sleds together behind motor tow, and were riding in circles on ice. Kids were so happy!"

"I have dreamt about a snowmobile for a long time, one day a friend told me about SnowDog. The first thing I have noticed is SnowDog`s compactness. It can be easily stored in the garage, and fits in my car`s trunk. That is huge benefit because for snowmobile I would have to buy a trailer, as for SnowDog my friend and I easily lift it up and put it in the trunk."

"I first learnt about SnowDog from the Internet, when by chance saw SnowDog video. I decided to buy it for few reasons: small size, it is very convenient to store and transport; easy maintenance. Mine is SnowDog Compact. It`s as easy as 1, 2, 3. Especially after driving a snowmobile. Impressions of the first trips are wonderful! I am a hunter, and for me it is very important that the sleds can ride well in any forest. And SnowDog is good at it, it`s very agile! Also pleased with a small gas consumption."

"I have never thought I would need an off-road machine like this till my wife and I took interest in sled dog races. Since we live far away from the city and the roads, surrounded by woods and fields, we figured we needed help in organising the training of our team of dogs. Someone had to accompany them: distances reach dozens of kilometers, speed of the team is 15-20 km per hour. We have an ATV, but it is quite useless when it comes to riding on deep snow. As for snowmobile, it is heavy, expensive, has high fuel consumption. It requires registration, the trailer for transportation, etc. And ... here it is, the perfect solution for us – SnowDog. It easily accompanies the team on packed snowy road at speed 20-25 km per hour, if necessary goes through deep snow. And how fun it is to ride on the snowy field, or go to the neighboring village straight through the forest. Great, isn't it!? I got to say, this thoroughbred SnowDog became a heart of our small "pack"..."
