Sno-Jet Powersports Maintenance

The first compact snowmobiles with an open cockpit and seats for one or two riders appeared in the 1960s and promptly gained popularity. The main market players were BRP, Polaris, and Arctic Cat. Inspired by their success and the idea of snowmobiling itself, a group of four people from Canada founded Sno-Jet and started producing their own snowmobiles. In 1965, they managed to make and sell just 25 units, but the demand was continuously growing, and Sno-Jet expanded the business and hired over a hundred of new employees. The first years were very successful, and the company sold 15,000 snowmobiles by 1968. In that year, the company was purchased by the Glastron Boat Company. However, the global oil crisis of the early 1970s and lots of competitors affected the business, and Sno-Jet was sold again in 1976. The last owner, Kawasaki, shut down the manufacturing facilities of Sno-Jet in Quebec by 1977 and stopped the production under this brand.

Snowmobiles by Sno-Jet were popular. In the 1970s, the lineup consisted of several models including the Star Jet, Star Jet + 2, SST, Super Jet, and Whisper Jet. They featured approximately the same lengths varying from 98 to 101 inches, but were equipped with different engines. Originally, all motors were sourced from Hirth, the German engine manufacturer. However, afterwards Sno-Jet started to use the motors by Yamaha and Sachs. For instance, the 1973 Star Jet was available with three carbureted engine options by Yamaha: 292cc, 338cc, and 433cc developing 19, 24, and 30 hp, respectively. The motors for the 1973 SST model (also three options) featured the same displacements but were mightier – 27, 32, and 38 hp. Also, they had a different carburetor by Keihin. The Whisper Jet was offered with the only 433cc engine making 30hp. Apart from that, there was a special racing model, the Thunderjet. Although its first prototype created in 1971 had many drawbacks, they all were addressed, and the completely redesigned, lightweight, and powerful Thunderjet launched in 1972 won many races and even dominated racing competitions at that time.

Despite their relatively short production period, Sno-Jets were reliable and reasonably priced snowmobiles.
