    Hopefully they can prop them back up get them turned around.

    And been a while since I heard them called Ditch Pickle. Although, mine doesn't fit that description very well, colour wise.

    Do they make quads or side by sides? I bet Textron snapped them up to go after that military side of the business that Polaris is killing it in.

    Yes on both. And I am sure that has much to do with it given Polaris' problem with making units that do not catch fire lately.

    Is that why Arctic Cat one-upped Polaris then? "Hey, let's make our shit catch fire in the snow instead"
     
  6. Nope, not at all :)

    I saw Ditch Pickle and thought it was about that dildo someone found on the road here recently.

    Cool and thanks. Those side by side make a lot of sense to me in military applications.

    If the irregulars can mount a recoil-less rifle or a ZSU on a Toyota Hilux, the US can sure as shit mount up a M2 on a RZR. :D

    and that name, Ditch Pickle, cracks me up. Never heard it before. :D

    If metalhead hadn't quit the bbs I might use that on him. Wait, steeltoe is still around. . . :D

    Greenlee. I knew I'd seen the Textron name before, now I know where.

    Does this mean I can get frigid pussy slug busters now? :D

    Greenlee does make some cool tools for electrical contractors.
    Not sure they have what you're looking for though.

    That would definitely put the US at a disadvantage. Hiluxes run forever. RZR's tend to break alot when pushed hard...

    I should really look into getting some of their hand tools since I get a pretty decent discount on them.

    I don't know what that means, and I'm not going to Google it.
