Leaders in Lightweight Snow Grooming
Tidd Tech was started in the early 1990’s by John Tidd when he was the owner of Mountain Meadows ski area in Vermont. John wanted to be able to pull a groomer behind a snowmobile and couldn’t find anything on the market and so the Trail Tenderizer was created and Tidd Tech became one of the first companies in the lightweight grooming category.
Today, Tidd Tech ships snow grooming equipment all over the world to skiing enthusiasts, community clubs & organizations, and skiing-centered recreational business owners.
Realizing that not everyone is fortunate to have this volume of snow and that snow conditions can vary dramatically around the world, we’ve enlisted a number of Tidd Tech enthusiasts to provide us with feedback and testing on all of our equipment in pretty much every kind of snow conditions imaginable. This willingness to hear and learn from others has made us pretty darn knowledgeable about snow and how to work with it.
By passion, we are avid skiers at heart. As such, like you, we want to spend as much of our time as possible skiing. With this goal in mind, we have designed our implements to be as effective and efficient as possible so that you can groom great trails and then get out there and enjoy them!
Tidd Tech Products
The Track Renovator simplifies resetting classic track in any snow conditions. The unit attaches to the G2 tooth bar in front of the TrackSetter and has teeth which extend 1-1/2” below the teeth on the G2. This allows you to rip deeper only in the area of your classic track which greatly reduces the drag exerted on your sled. Thus, track resetting which used to take up to 4 passes to accomplish can now be done in 1 to 2 passes in most conditions.
Electric Actuator Kit (for TT)$527.00
Our Electric Actuator replaces the hand crank on the Trail Tenderizer and enables an operator to make toothbar adjustments “on the fly”. This is especially useful when using the six foot Trail Tenderizer in hilly terrain because it prevents bogging down the snowmobile on a hill. It also greatly increases the operators ability to react to changes in snow conditions such as transitions from sun to shade. Kit includes: Electric actuator, clamp, wire and switch.
Original Simmons Flexi-Ski$419.00
If you are having trouble turning your long/wide tack snow machine while pulling a load, you need a pair of these. The Simmons Flexi-Ski was originally designed as an after-market performance ski for high-speed snowmobile touring. BUT, we found that they greatly improve turning at grooming speeds while pulling a load. Unlike the stock skis you have on your snowmobile with one wearbar in the middle, the patented Simmons Flexi-Ski has a wearbar on each side of the ski. The ski is concave between the wearbars giving you better control and flotation. This concavity on the front and middle portion of the ski also causes the ski to climb up on top of the snow faster than conventionally designed skis thus allowing your snowmobile to plane quicker and more easily in loose snow. Our version of the Flexi-Ski comes standard with 4″ of carbide for improved performance in icy conditions. Models without carbides are also available and are recommended for grooming environments where the ground surface beneath the snow must be undamaged, ie.: golf courses, asphalt, etc.. The Original Simmons Flexi-Skis are 6″ wide and work great in any type of snow. For those with consistently deep snow, the Flexi-Ski Gen3 offers an 8″ width for greater flotation. Gen3 cost is $435.
