What length and degree of carbide should I use on a 97 zrt 600? Will mostly be used on trail and deep snow riding.
Thanks.

I just checked the website and it says to use either a 4" 60* or a 6" 60*. What is the difference between a 4" and a 6"?

The difference is 2" -- j/k. A 4inch carbide is pretty much what comes stock with a new sled. They won't bite as well as a 6" in the corners. If you drive aggressively at all don't even bother with a 4" carbide setup. If you aren't running studs a 6" would be good -- otherwise if you are running studs you might even want to look at 8" carbides.

About 2 inchs...lol, kidding, the 6 inch will be your best bet to go with unless running studs, the go up to 8 inch. I think most carbides come in 60 degree.

Yeah, on the ZRT's the best setup is 6" without studs and 8" with studs.
