It’s already September.  It seemed like a short cool summer here in New Hampshire. (My wife, a NH native, says they almost all are.) I started my potted veggies and herbs late, actually almost at the end of June, so we picked lettuce through August, and I still have lots of green tomatoes. I was out fishing last night on Little Lake Sunapee with a friend and once the sun went down we were downright cold. This cool summer is going to transition to a cool autumn, and then you-know-what: snow! 

According to the Farmer’s Almanac we are scheduled to see LOTS of snow this winter:

“A Wet and Snowy Winter All-Around
Precipitation will be at above-normal levels throughout the country, which will translate to equally above-normal amounts of snowfall in parts of the Northeast, central Great Lakes, central Plains, Intermountain region, and from eastern Tennessee through New Mexico. Get your shovels ready! Notable exceptions to this wet winter are the Pacific Northwest and Upper Midwest, where less precipitation than usual is expected.”  Source: 2018 Farmers Almanac

What does that mean to many of us? It’s time to make sure snowmobiles are serviced. (And snowblowers too—although those are less fun.) According to the NH State Parks website there are over 7,000 miles of official snowmachine trails in this state alone, and adding in all the miles of trails in Vermont and Maine, we live in a snowmobiler’s paradise. 

With a potentially early and long winter ahead of us, and knowing that snowmobilers spend a good deal on their machines, we think they deserve the best protection. Amsoil makes synthetic lubricants for both 2 and 4 stroke machines, specially formulated for cold conditions like our Northeast winters. Repeated cold weather starts put additional strains on snowmobile engines, so you need the lower startup viscosity of the proven Amsoil snowmobile lubricants. Additionally, Amsoil makes snowmobile lubricants for gears and shocks, as well as carburetor cleansers and other fuel additives.

Some of you have mentioned that your new sled requires oil branded by the snowmobile manufacturer. Don't let anyone fool you—it is against the law to claim that use of a non-branded oil will void a snowmachine warranty. Snowmobile manufacturers want to sell you their oil at inflated prices. (The same holds true for your car—the law allows you to use the lubricants of your choice.) To learn more about this, when you click on the link above you’ll see a short video called “Warranty Secure”.   

Give our Amsoil products a try this winter—you won’t be disappointed. When you order, please provide our Dealer number 1638131. We thank you. If you have specific questions about your snowmobile needs you can always call our Tech Department at 715-399-TECH (8324). GOOD SLEDDING!
