The wildly popular Ski Doo snowmobiles are manufactured by the Canadian Bombardier Company. Since Armand Bombardier designed his first snowmobile in 1937 this company has led the way in snowmobile design and innovation with its Ski Doo models of snowmobiles. The Ski Doo sleds have become so popular that many people refer to all makes of snowmobiles as Ski Doos even though there are three other snowmobile manufacturers producing quality sleds. Ski Doo sleds have been used in many winter olympics and are a popular prop for action movies.
The owners manual will provide a diagram of the snowmobiles engine and where to find all of its components. Is the engine stop switch pushed in the off position? The "Engine stop" switch is located on the snowmobiles control panel. Double check to make sure that the switch is not stuck in the off position.The "Engine stop" switch (if pushed down) will prevent the motor from starting. Is there gas left in the fuel tank since last winter? Next you must investigate the fuel tank. Gasoline can degrade over time. That can lead to a number of problems- hard starting rough running or no starting at all.
A heavy snow can conceal large rocks or felled trees beneath a seemingly uniform surface causing damage to the machine and a loss of control. Property owners have a duty to keep their property free of latent defects although the property owner must know or have reason to know about the particular defect and that people will be crossing the property on a snowmobile. What constitutes constructive knowledge varies by jurisdiction. Manufacturer Liability In some limited cases the manufacturer of the snowmobile may be liable for damages.
If you participate in the sort of snowmobiling you probably know that you need to take safety precautions like driving sober watching for other snow sport enthusiast watching for cars when you cross roads and wearing reflective gear and a helmet. And if you participate in another winter sport such as skiing or snowshoeing you need to be aware of snowmobilers in your proximity and wear reflective gear so that they can yield to you. But sometimes no matter how careful you are accidents do occur-often because of other negligent snowmobilers but sometimes too because of a default in the construction of your snowmobile or because of negligence on part of the land owner.
