Those look good.  I have a Jet sled I like, but it doesn't have the runners, so I have to be careful using it on non-snow.

Just ordered a set for my sled, bolt on.

the older I get the more I tend to use it on other than snow/ice/water.  So the runners should make it last longer.  Even without the runners It would probably outlast me, but I will  feel better dragging across rocks with the runners!!

When we were testing the new motor on the dog seamed to load up and not rape up fully. Thanks to our resident Small engine Guru LizardStar we fixed the problem. Right off the top of his head he said , IT SOUNDS LIKE THE AIRFILTER IS FROSTING UP.
Is it that easy? YUP I pilled out the paper filter put the housing and a course foam cover back on and used it today Here in town. It was zero* and some monster drifts going on. With two of us in the big black sled we went blasting through and over 2 foot drifts, and up 10 foot berms and across pasture like grass at 18 MPH, that's the same speed it runs with gust me. No more black smoke. We were also having chain problems at times the connector links would come apart. I'm having problems finding Riveted together connector links for #40 chain.
So I put the rivet end on my air hammer and left the fast clip off and just riveted the connector link pin over, they look just like the rest of the chain.
We ran it really hard and they worked prefect. I'll still keep looking for some that are made to rivet.Clap

D,
  Do you have a wire welder?  Just a small spot of weld on the chain rivet end might act like a peened over rivet.   Maybe???
