I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.
A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.
A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.
If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.
If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.
Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.
As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.
Have a great season.
From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.
So I'm busy looking at hold over sleds and comparing a Pro RMK 155 listed at 408 pounds and an SKS 146 listed at 460 pounds.
Wow, what a difference! Has anyone had both of these sleds together and done a side by side weight comparison to measure the "true" weight of each?
I've looked at them and studied the changes that are obvious but 52 pounds??? Can see 25-30 lbs but not 52.
Thanks for any input
I shortened a 2014 Pro RMK to a 146 with Ice Age rails and got a 2.4" Polaris track.
Was actually a pretty easy project, I think I cut 6" off of the tunnel & coolers.
Toughest part was welding the cooler cross over pipe at the end of the tunnel. Would be even easier if I did it again.
I guess if I want a lightweight 146 this is the way to go!
