Picked up 89 Citation for the season.  Electric start, rare as hen's teeth around here.  Back too broke to pull a rope.  Short track turns on a dime, haven't needed reverse yet. 
This little citation will go through 2' of fresh if i'm careful.  Got stuck in a 3' drift but it was my fault and easy to flip out.  Hurt my back tho.  Was thinking bout a Tundra, maybe put the electro motor into and a winch on the back basket for 'reverse.' 
Spent the last couple years trying cat, polaris 340's with reverse, they were tanks and sank quick. 
Can't post pics, my photobucket doesn't work any more.  But it looks like this one, all the way down to the faded hood and missing decals.  Just not my pic, found it online    Plus mine needs a seat cover.  Again, not my sled, just looks a lot like
Found a new pic host let's see if this works.  If so this is actually my sled

Nicely done SJ.  Makes us all proud to hear that you chose a doo not just because of her fancy red faded looks lol.  Those pep in those little 250 citation sleds are surprising for what they are.  Long time ago a friend of mine had one that had cracked motor mounts, so check those out.

thanks, will do.  sorry i haven't figured out how to post a pic but the link above seems to work.
was able to spin it around by hand yesterday on the ice without hurting the back.  i use it to get around our small yard when the snow is too deep to ride my trike.
right now the market is flooded with cheap citations so i'll be hanging on to mine for a while lol
