Club Name: Dewey
Dewey is a 1969 Bombardier SV-200 snow-grooming machine. Equipped with six different levers to operate its single blade rear drag, front blade and two more levers to control the two independent tracks.
The engine is a 250 Ford 6-cylinder which has received several modifications over the years. These modifications include a conversion to an electronic ignition, refitted carburetor from a 1986 F-150 truck and a head from a 1982 Cougar that’s been ported and decked for higher compression. This drives a beefed up C-4 transmission which is cooled by a B&M oil cooler with an electronic fan. The hydraulics were modified to provide float capability where needed so it can maneuver over driveways without damaging the drag.
Last year (09/10) Snowdrifters groomer operators groomed 543 miles!
