    My worst section on the trail

    First attempt this year. Snow still in the ditch in areas and this entire area is under water in the bushes as well. Its a long stretch and if too deep I turn around. I don't like getting my feet wet. The wolverine made it both ways. It turns out all the water trashing flushed a lot of accumulated mud from the wheel and suspension area I had there. Its much cleaner underneath now.

    I don't, espectially area large or long. You don't know what to expect and its the worst place to get stuck if that would be possible. I agree if it was mud it would be a lot worst but I stay away from it. I know whats under but can be sure if its too soft or not without going through it. I have turned around many time approaching this with my ATV. The Wolverine is fairly high and I was watch out my side doot to see how high it was coming going through it.

    In the winter this is frozen sheet of ice. Control is tough and keeping on it requires patience and slow speed. No funny quick move or I'd be into the trees.

    It looks like you would need a John boat for that. Do you need a boat registration for your Wolvy.

    LOL Yeah, hip waiters as well if I got stuck!! I have been through this many many times on the ATV (Kingquad 700/750, both). But I have also turned around aborting the route as many times. The water was too deep for my liking. You all can laugh at me!! (Laugh now before carrying on). My limit is when the water came to the foot well of my ATV. On the Wolverine I expect it is deeper but I stopped and look out the open door to see what I was in depth wise. I pushed through since my feet weren't getting wet.

    I don't have a boat license.

    I've filled the floorboards of my X4 many times. Kinda nice in the summer when its hot out. The air intake is so high under the hood of these new X-series Wolvys you can get in pretty deep water.

    Your not the only one who plays it safe. If the water gets more than an inch or two above the floorboards, I will abort. Thankfully, I haven't needed to yet.
    Progress is man’s ability to complicate simplicity.

    I tell my friends, the owners manual doesn't say you can go into deep rivers etc with water in the cab. If I need to spend time in deep water. A vehicle designed for it is best (Seadoo, boat) Given that its a trail machine there are limits to it and a huge limit from my Wallet!! The further you push it in where it don't belong the more your wallet talks back to you giving you hell back.

    Pretty much what a dealer said when I first looked at ATV's years ago and how deep I could go. He said how much can you afford to fix it. Enough said, ATV manual from Suzuki Kingquad had some limit mentioned so Wheel well and/or axle submersion are my limits. One never knows if there is a deeper hole in a cover area when going through unfamiliar trails. For me the FUN STOPS when I am not only stuck or worst if I've damaged something major as well in the process.
