A side by side adapted for extreme conditions
For example, IMAGINE us wanting to use this powerful machine and trying it out in extreme conditions? In conditions where snow and cold are in control? Is it possible? Well the answer is YES! I had the honor of testing this machine in extreme cold conditions, the -20 degree Celsius accompanied by the 30cm of snow we have here in New Brunswick. Yes yes you understood, but is it really possible without getting stuck in the snow?
I had the chance of meeting a good friend of mine, Hugo Violette owner at MARTIN SMALL EQUIPMENT located in Edmundston New Brunswick for an amazing time!
It was Tuesday morning and I was going to meet Hugo to test drive his new machine. Hugo being an eternal lover of motor machines and especially modified ones, I can tell you that I wasn’t ready for what I expected! A Can-Am Defender Max Limited was waiting in the backyard, but not just any model from BRP’s Defender line…
A modification to meet my expectations
A Can-Am Defender Max Limited mounted on an Apache Backcountry LT track system. This system has never been seen before! You can finally explore winter in complete freedom. Thanks to the performance of the Apache Backcountry track sets. Watch out Winter! Designed and made to excel in deep snow, pure pleasure! The Apache 360 LT track system is an ally in any season and on all types of terrain.
Each set of tracks is optimally made for a particular use, whether for work or for pleasure. This specialized system for unequaled performance and durability: The Apache Backcountry, snow champion, and Apache 360 and 360 LT tracks, versatile in all seasons. Each set of Apache tracks is tailored to the power of your machine’s engine, chassis design, speedometer and DPS steering, so we’re in perfect control of where we’re going.
The aluminum slide system reduces rolling resistance and increases the contact surface. You can adapt your tracks to driving conditions by adding wheels, slides and snow scrapers. Can-Am Dynamic Power Steering will give you a better experience. By calibrating several parameters, like the power steering and the speedometer according to the tracks, the vehicle’s odometer and speedometer will be really synchronized.
These are easy to install explained Hugo. Can-Am vehicle-specific mounting brackets simplify track installation. Thanks to their integrated design, they remain well-adjusted when you use the wheels.
An impressive performance
Oufffff! It was exciting to see this Defender Max Limited at work! We left the yard at MARTIN SMALL EQUIPEMENT to head for the trail not far from the dealer. We did 500 meters on the trail and suddenly hopped in the deep snow, absolutely nothing stopped it! A real war machine.
With the comfort of heating in the cabin, while pushing the defender to the maximum of its capacity in the mountains, in all angles unimaginable, we were excited as two small children! The stability, the power of the machine and the Apaches tracks, no chance of staying stuck! This machine is complete. Hugo and his mechanics have successfully managed to modify the Defender Max Limited as such, what ingenuity, never seen before!
Thank you very much to MARTIN SMALL EQUIPMENT’s team for their generosity and for letting me live this experience. This is only a postponement!
See you soon 😀
