That's a pretty good buy for the US dollar ($2786)  Timmins is about a 6 hour drive south east of where I am.  Should be easy to take across the border too, since it doesn't need a licence or registration or even insurance.  It could just be the thing for a winter camper.  I already have a ski-doo trailer and all that kind of jazz, but even still, the new skidoo was expensive, and insurance wasn't cheap either.

If you are looking for something that won't break the bank, sounds like a good deal.  Probably have a fairly high resale value too for when you decide to buy a real skidoo, LOL.

Its over 500 miles for me. The gas cost alone would offset any savings over buying a new machine. Besides, I would want the bigger 13 hp engine.

I asked him rbinhood. He said it's the standard size 10 hp 2017 model and he's only used it several times to and from his ice hut. He has two sleds with swivel seats and will sell everything for $3,500 CA.

Just wondering does he say why he is selling it? Didn't work out for him?

There is a dealer here in North Bay. Maybe I should go and try one out!

He said it: "Floats good cutting trail didn’t brake threw the slush was impressive I’m going with a different style".
By his FB page he has several snowmachines and quads.

Here are a few picks of his Snowdog:

sound like its up your alley.  You know a handy guy with a used track powered snow blower could probably cobble something similar together - but the price sounds not too out there and you don't' have to freak out your dog trying to put it on a snowmobile or strap a kennel to the boggan. Have not tried either....yet...but its coming one day.  Have to get a couple days in a row off first!
