According to the note at the end of the DealDash description, it is important for all shoppers to know that as a result of high demand, logistics challenges and the global shortage of supplies, this snowmobile may not be exactly as shown. DealDash states “a logistics surcharge of $400 may be added to the displayed price. The price may not always include accessory installation costs, and according to the winner’s geographic position, tax, title, license, transport, preparation and other fees may not be included. Dealer prices may vary.”
The history of snowmobiles
A snowmobile is an automotive vehicle for travel on snow. It is steered by skis at the front and is propelled by a belt of track at the back.
It is a little confusing as to who actually invented the first snowmobile. However, Joseph-Armand Bombardier is generally given credit for making the first snowmobile at the young age of 15 in 1922. In 1937, at the age of 30, Bombardier had already achieved his first major commercial success with the launch of the seven-passenger B7 snowmobile.
According to my research, the concept took a leap forward in 1924 when Earl Eliason created what was known as a motorized toboggan. In the 1920s, Eliason mounted a two-cylinder motorcycle engine to a long sled and steered it with skis at the front, and propelled it with single endless track. In fact, Eliason made 40 of these snowmobiles and patented them in 1927. Other versions of snowmobiles have actually been around since 1910. So there were many predecessors paving the way to Bombardier’s first snowmobile.
Modern snowmobiles, as we know them today, did not become popular until the mid-1970s when people began to use them as recreational vehicles. At this time, there were more than 100 snowmobile manufacturers, each trying to improve the design.
The 2021 Yamaha Sidewinder SRX-LE , powered by a four-stroke 998 Genesis Turbo Engine generating in excess of 200 hp, became the fastest snowmobile. The speed of snowmobiles can range from 80 mph to 200 mph, depending on many factors, but most modern snowmobiles can reach speeds of 150 mph.
The differences between motorcycle helmets and snowmobile helmets are interesting. Snowmobile helmets have vents that riders can open or close to prevent fogging and snowmobile face shields have a double lens to resist fogging.
Snowmobiles have definitely come a long way from its early beginnings, and now we have the awesome opportunity to shop for a good bargain on one of the best right here on DealDash.com.
Happy shopping everyone!
