Trail Groomers

Tapiskoots Kiyas - Diamond Tooth Harrows Groomer

My trail drag and trail dresser are 1 in the same. It is low budget, effective, hardworking and tough/resilient… like me.

I use my a ArcticCat BearCat 570, again,” effective, hardworking and tough/resilient”. The “low budget” still fits the bill re: the snomo as it was purchased for less than half the original cost with only 1200Kms on it simply because the backrest was damaged beyond repair.
Since a lot of the land around here is lower laying land I've attached screen to the ventilation system with duct tape to reduce the amount of (non-endemic) bull-rush fluff ending up in the engine compartment which could easily cause a fire or engine damage.

How It Works... It works fantastic. I go out with the machine alone “there and back”. After the newly disturbed snow “freezes” a bit I “drag”(teeth down) the trail, then go around again to dress(teeth up) the trail. It works much better than the trail dresser I paid $750.00 for at an auction sale 5 years ago.

And since I picked a bunch of them (description below) sections up from an abandoned farm it is very cost effective. I’ve never used any other than this particular piece for winter but have used as many as 3 of his sisters and brothers in tandem for summer, behind a quad of course. As long as I go slow and watch carefully while discovering new trails everything is fine... for drag and dragger. For those of you who are not cognizant of what this thing is, it’s called ‘a section of diamond tooth harrows’ because... well... the connecting pieces of steel form a ‘diamond’ and it has ‘teeth’ that are ‘diamond’ shaped when viewed from either end and it’s a ‘section’ of the system.

I hope y’all get a charge out of my drag and dresser. Here’s the pix. I hope...
