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.
Snowmobiles are motorized vehicles capable of speeds high enough to cause serious injury or death in the event of an accident. As such snowmobile owners should not entrust their vehicles into the care of just anyone. If the rider has a history of reckless conduct excessive drinking or if the party riding the snowmobile is a minor a reasonable snowmobile owner would not permit them to operate the machine. If the owner does so he or she may be liable for negligently entrusting the snowmobile into the drivers care. Constructive Knowledge Liability Property owners may also share some liability in a snowmobile accident.
Snowmobiling is a fun wintertime activity for places across the country lucky to get enough snow. But just like riding an ATV snowmobiles come with their own set of safety concerns. Snowmobile accidents happen with alarming frequency-an estimate 200 deaths and 14000 injuries occur from snowmobiles each year. These accidents may involve other snowmobiles skiers snowshoers or even vehicles. And because snowmobiles travel at such high speeds with little protection to riders accidents can cause severe injuries if not death.
A heavy snow can conceal large rocks or felled trees beneath a seemingly uniform surface causing damage to the machine and a loss of control. Property owners have a duty to keep their property free of latent defects although the property owner must know or have reason to know about the particular defect and that people will be crossing the property on a snowmobile. What constitutes constructive knowledge varies by jurisdiction. Manufacturer Liability In some limited cases the manufacturer of the snowmobile may be liable for damages.
