I read an article recently about a young man who died in a snowmobile accident. Recreational snowmobile use is common here in Iowa. It got me thinking though. Snowmobiles aren’t typically used for farm work here. But are they used for farm work in other areas?
In a typical Iowa winter we are still able to use pick-ups, tractors, or ATVs to get around in most cases. But what about areas that see more snow than we do, like the mountains. Are snowmobiles winter time work horses in other places?
Much like ATVs, snowmobiles have the ability to be dual purpose vehicles. Considering ATVs are one of the most common causes of accidents on the farm, I wonder if snowmobiles don’t have similar hazards.
Do you use snowmobiles for working on the farm? Would you like to see some snowmobile safety information?
