Slide Suspension Replacing 1, 2 & 3 Wheels with a slider
« on: March 21, 2020, 02:36:02 pm »
Has anyone out there carried out this mod? A lot of machines in PQ have them installed.  Does some one sell these as a kit or supplies drawings. How does in work? Sure like to hear about them.  Bob

Hello,
This is the two wheel slider system and I think it will work really well. I have seen a three wheel off -slider system also. Has any one heard any plus-minuses on either if the systems. I can't believe how hard it is to get information. You would think some one would jump at the opertunity to supply help!

I’m thinking there were some posts from this site that were lost when this site went down for a little while and then came back. There was a French person who commented about the spider system on here. I think I remember him saying that the sliders added more flotation in the deep snow. About 50% for the middle replacement of the two wheels and about 75-100% more flotation with the front 3 wheels replaced with a slider. You are sacrificing ride comfort and more noise for the better flotation in the deeper snow.
There is a Facebook page from Quebec called “Les amateurs d’autoniege/snowmobile du Quebec” where they show all their bombardiers and the various slider systems they use.
Some use wood for the bottom slider, others look like they are using a UHMW material I would think.
From what I see when you use the longer slider, two of the axles are in a pocket where they slide back and forth for tilt movement.

Still no one has come forward with a supplier or a supplier to buy the drawings. ...............
