Over the Christmas holiday break, I tested two machines, and took them out along the same trails, on the same lakes, and through the same range of conditions.  While I’m sure I didn’t cover all of the possibilities you might encounter in your travels, I think I can at least help narrow your choices. To lay the groundwork (you know, for science), these are the machines I tested:  the Snowdog 10HP Compact model, and the 13HP Standard model with Reverse option.  I picked these two because I had to see for myself If the Reverse option was worth it.  Also, I wanted...

Our new drop-ship option saves you time and money, and we're excited that we've been able to help more than a few Snowdogs find their forever homes in places like Saskatoon, Abbotsford, Calgary and even Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland (it costs a bit more to get to Newfoundland, though).
