      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Wilcraft in deep snow

Cranker or anyone, how does a Wilcraft handle 16+" of snow with two guys and gear?

Thanks.

Cranker wont be around for a day or so. I would say from my usage of the Wilcraft that with 16 inches you may have a problem unless you have the track system on. It may also depend on the snow. Powder or heavy wet stuff that pulls hard. When I used it on Burntside this winter and was driving in 6-8 inches it was not to bad but slower. You will probably need to drive in low range with the dif. locked.

I have not had the chance to use the tracks on back so I cannot say how well that will work but it should sure help.

Tracks are the only way to go. Above image is the only way my neighbor's and I got out of our driveways this morning. After the plow truck finally came through this morning, it left a 4' hard packed berm. None of my neighbor's snowthrowers could get through. They keep blowing belts. I found that a Wilcraft dealer is in zimmerman. I have not gone to their web sit yet, so I do not even know how much they start at.

Yes with it locked it is two wheel drive. Now, if you set the front end up just a little higher than the rear drive you can skim over the top with the front to some degree. That will help you through the deeper snow.

Donh hold me to this but if I remember correctly this is approx what they run.

Basic Wilcraft---10,500

insul cover------ 300

auger holder --------50

Wilcraft cover------500

Track option------3,500

Now they did have some 1 year old and trade in models awhile back and I think they were around 7,900.

When I rode with one of the guuys form wilcraft they said the base model is $9800. Of course tehn there are all the nice options that HL listed to sweeten the deal.

Without the diff locked in the Wilcraft it is a one wheel wonder. Lock the diff and you're spinnin both rear wheels. It actually works really well without the diff locked. Lots of guys put studs in the tires to help get more traction.
