Default Sled advice

Hi,

I haven't been in the sledding world for 20yrs now. But with two little boys, I would like to get something to pull them around the fields on tubes, or do some ditch driving once in a while.

I'd like something used but would prefer around 2008 and up. I used to be a ski-doo guy but I things have changed so much in that time I am pretty much a newbie once more.

What would be a good sled for what I'm looking at doing?

Any ideas about the sled would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

For your intended use, about anything that runs will fit the bill.
You should be able to find a good used sled to beat around on for $2k or less.
I picked up a very nice condition Trail RMK 550 Gen II for $1400.

I have found a couple potential options.

A 2011 AC Sno Pro 162" - it's got 5k km's on it. My thoughts is this thing might be far to big for what I'm doing.

Or

A 2009 yamaha rst90gt 6k km's on it. It's a touring sled by the looks of things, but is very heavy.
