If you participate in the sort of snowmobiling you probably know that you need to take safety precautions like driving sober watching for other snow sport enthusiast watching for cars when you cross roads and wearing reflective gear and a helmet. And if you participate in another winter sport such as skiing or snowshoeing you need to be aware of snowmobilers in your proximity and wear reflective gear so that they can yield to you. But sometimes no matter how careful you are accidents do occur-often because of other negligent snowmobilers but sometimes too because of a default in the construction of your snowmobile or because of negligence on part of the land owner.
The owners manual will provide a diagram of the snowmobiles engine and where to find all of its components. Is the engine stop switch pushed in the off position? The "Engine stop" switch is located on the snowmobiles control panel. Double check to make sure that the switch is not stuck in the off position.The "Engine stop" switch (if pushed down) will prevent the motor from starting. Is there gas left in the fuel tank since last winter? Next you must investigate the fuel tank. Gasoline can degrade over time. That can lead to a number of problems- hard starting rough running or no starting at all.

The earliest incarnation of snowmobiles date back to 1923 when Carl Eliason of Sayner Wisconsin hand-built the first model. His invention consisted of a modified Model T Ford stripped of its tires and the undercarriage replaced with tracks and skis. His invention proved popular for rural mail delivery. Thankfully snowmobiles have progressed greatly since those heady days of delivering mail and can be found throughout the worlds snowy realms. One such destination where snowmobiles have found a particular home is nestled in the resort community of Whistler BC.
