Taking them off and putting the wheels back on by myself takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Putting them on by myself has taken 1.5 to 2 hours, they are a little heavy and awkward. Sometimes they line right up and other times I fight to get them to line up and then when they do I wonder why it was so hard. It helps to have 2 people.

I use my winch on the ATV to lift it off the ground.

These cost me $3200 in 06 I heard that they are about $4k now.

I guess that's the cheap option to buying a boat?

Of all the motorcycles, atvs, snowmobiles, camp trailers I've owned... I've put less money into my boat than any of them. That thing just starts up and runs great every single year. Had it 20 years now (87 searay).

For those interested in tracks just a couple of thoughts.

You will want a 600 or bigger machine, mine is a 700 King Quad. They will reduce the speed of the machine by 2/3's give or take a little depending on the machine.
I would want power steering, mine isn't and they are hard to steer at slow speeds. They work your arms and shoulders pretty good.
There are several brands some are better than others, mine are TATOU. They have worked well and I use them a lot. They are still the originals that I bought in 06.

Just a little story when I first got them.

I had to do a job at Mount Holly Ski Resort, had to move some equipment from the lodge to the top ski lift.

When I arrived at the lodge the guy said he tried to get a hold of me and tell me not to come because of the new deep snow their snowmobiles couldn't get to the top lift. I said my snowmobile is light and has deep paddles and I would like to try, we drove the truck and trailer up the highway to as close as we could to the lifts, I unloaded my snowmobile and it sank almost to my knees, I could drive around in the snow but it really was slow and bogged a lot so I unloaded the ATV, it stayed on top of the snow and I took off for the lift, I went to the top and circled the lift and came back and then the snowmobiles could make it up. That is just one experience I had with them.

I had a 16 foot tracker that never gave me any problems either. Always fired up. The only reason I don't still have it is I fell asleap at the wheel going 75 coming back from Pineview. Totaled my truck and boat.
