How does the new sled drive compared to the old one? Or more importantly, how does it start =)

How about the fancy roller?

My finger is tired from holding the start button down for 2 seconds! First pass I had it on Eco mode and it didn't like pulling the groomer. Then switched to Standard and it was fine. Turning is okay, but then the roller is attached to the pintle hitch I installed on the back end. The TiddTech is pulled from the gooseneck, which is farther forward. Undecided whether I'll want deep groove skis to help with the turns.

The roller packs down a 5' wide path with the 6 tires and leaves little parallel ridges. These will disappear when I use the drag. The idea is to initially pack down snow onto the leaves, sticks and dirt and not pull them up into the ski surface.

Perfect mega roller. You need the gluten free version.
