BASE:   None
PAST 24 Hrs:   None
    With the 2013/14 snowmobiling season finally over, I had some time to do some figuring. I came up with the following stats: 1. We groomed 46 days this season. We groom 4 days per week. Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat. 2. Using 2 tractors, we made 78 grooming trips. 3. We used a total of 3,464 gallons of diesel fuel. 1,544.6 gallons for our JD 7410 and 1,919.4 gallons for our JD7610. Both tractors are wheeled. 4. We groomed a total of 7,646 miles with 7410 going 3,875 and 7610 going 3,771. The 7410 had 2.50 MPG and the 7610 had 1.96 MPG. 5. Our fuel costs were $12,439.00 at an average cost of $3.591 per gallon. 6. We spent 386.0 hours in 7410 and 460.25 hours in 7610 for a total of 846.25 hours grooming. 7. We had 66.25 hours spend on signing and brushing the trails during the season. Replacing missing signs and final brushing to get the trails approved by the DNR. 8. We had approximately 310 total man hours in maintenance/repairs of the tractors and drags. 9. We spent approximately $4,000.00 in repairs and maintenance. The trails were the best they have been is several years this season. Goes to show what some snow will do to help the trail conditions out. I hope that all of you who used our trails this season found them to your liking. We tried our best and I think we were able accomplished this. Hope we get snow next season like we had this year so we can continue to give you all great trails to ride on. See you next season – enjoy the summer!!!
