I have used my 4 wheeler with tracks on bare ground and gravel without any problems.....but I ride very slowly for other reasons.  My rig has had a clutch kit put in, but you can still smoke the belt if not careful.  As stated above, it will take you places you shouldn't go.  I have been in 6 feet of snow and stop and step off and sink to my waist.....while leaving a 4" deep track
It never changes, but it is always different.

X2 on the bighorn tires, great in the snow.
Some old fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat

no, the thing is wide enough already - I'd have to stop and saw way too many logs out of the way

I think it would be worse than tracks for drag, yet not as effective.

I should be out hunting lions, thanks WDFW
