track snow blowers

You guys with track snow blowers . I know they do not have steering, but do you have to fight them to go a straight line? I know wheeled units do not with a disk drive. I do not know about Hydro drive units.

If the track is adjusted according to the manufacturer specs as per the manual, they travel perfectly straight. It's the turning which is tuff at times especially in the garage but as they say, tracks have their time and place in the snow also.


What hirschallan said above & track drive snowblowers are not that hard to maneuver once you have snow under the tracks. I keep my Honda HS928TA on a furniture dolly in my garage during the off season so I can easily move it if needed.

Sorry, I know this is is an older topic and my post isn't exactly on point, but I just joined the forum and saw this. I have a 2004 Troy Bilt Snow Tracker that has power steering triggers or if you like, steering assist. This works very well and turning while in use isn't difficult at all. Turning on a dry surface is tougher and trying to move it when turned off is tougher still. Engaging both levers while the blower is off helps a lot in moving it. I am really enjoying all of the information that can be found on this site.
