• 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.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    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.

Ridgid box from Home Depot. Think I paid like $25. Cut off the handle, and rip the plastic liner out of top. Replaced with foam.

Been beating on this thing for 2 years. One of my top 5 mods in my career. Waterproof, good latches, and the foam holds everything tight while riding.

That's awesome. Where did you get the shovel holder at? Could you provide more information on how you attached the box to the tunnel?

If anyone is thinking about pelican cases you should reconsider.
they are terrible to open when snow and ice freezes in the latches.
the “nanuk” brand case latches are way better in snow/ ice usage.

Thought about the hard shell cases but shied away as I figured that they would tend to crack in cold / roll overs ...latches are def easier than frozen zippers but would need a safety to prevent unintended opening ...

Negative. I roll my sled probably a dozen times a day. Has never broke open by itself.

I also ice fish Lake of the Woods in -20F weather without any issues.
