What sled that's longer manufactured


Recommended Posts

So we all know the four current manufactures.  Yes I know.  This will date some of us but what would be your sled of choice that's no longer manufactured?  For me:

1) Merc Snow twister

2) Rupp Nitro 440 FA (covered)

3) Speedway 650 FA

4) Sno Jet 292 FA single cylinder

The old John Deere Liquifire 440 will always hold a nostalgic place in my heart ... I absolutely loved that sled as a kid!

Redline.

Lots of innovation that they sadly were never able to get right.

Never heard of them before. I like the street bike looking rear end and tube chassis.

There was one for sale here in Sweden last winter. I think a couple of sleds managed to get out before the factory was completly closed down. I read on another forum a long thread about a guy that had bought one and went over it bit by bit and fixing what was not "right" so it could be usable.
Redline was THE machine everyone talked about but it took too long to get to the market so the competition was way ahead of it, and this sled is clearly not o "rider forward" machine.

They even had a snocross sled (can´t find a picture of it) but it was banned because it was too light! The other brands lobbied for a minimum weight limit to get it banned it was said.

Interesting machine anyway.

Kawasaki.  In fact, they are the only ones still around that could get back into the game.

Remember when Kawasaki grabbed up Snow Jet and you got a Kawasaki with a Yamaha motor

Lots of brands around when I was a kid. In our neighbourhood there were Ski-doo, Polaris,  Massey-Ferguson, Skiroule, Evinrude, Chaparrel, Snowcruiser and SnoPrince, and more.

I remember going on a group ride and there was a french guy who showed up with an Alouette Super Brute.What an awesome looking machine.
