Knowing the snowmobile dimension is important as it can offer you optimum riding experience.

The average length of a snowmobile is in the range of 115 to 140 inches, while the average width is somewhere between 40 to 50 inches. These are averages, so some sleds may not fall under these dimensions.

As you know, there are no absolute dimensions that work for all snowmobiles.

So, below, we have compared the dimensions of up to 15 snowmobiles.

So, let’s get started.

What is the Average Length and Width of the Snowmobiles?

When it comes to snowmobiles, there is no one-size-fits-all in terms of dimensions. The length and width can vary depending on the make, model, and purpose of the sled. However, it’s helpful to know the average dimensions for reference when choosing a snowmobile.

On average, a snowmobile can range from 115 to 140 inches in length and 40 to 50 inches in width. The longer the snowmobile, the more stable it can be at high speeds. A wider sled can provide better flotation on deep snow.

Benefits of Knowing the Average Snowmobile Dimensions

  1. Purchasing Snowmobile Covers: If you are intending to buy a snowmobile cover to keep your sled safe from the elements, knowing the dimensions of your sled can help. You see, not all covers come in the same size, so having an understanding of your snowmobile’s dimensions will ensure you get a cover that fits just right.
  1. Buying a New Sled: Perhaps, you’re considering purchasing a new sled. The dimensions can be crucial in this case. You need to know whether the new sled will fit into your pickup truck or not. Without accurate dimensions, you may end up with a sled that is either too big or too small for transport.
  2. Storage Purposes: Knowing the dimensions of your sled is also advantageous when it comes to storage. Your garage or shed may have limited space, and the last thing you want is to bring home a new sled only to find that it doesn’t fit. By knowing the size beforehand, you can avoid such unwelcome surprises.
  3. Snowmobile Transport: The dimensions can also be critical if you need to transport your sled on a trailer or in a truck. You’ll need to ensure that the sled fits properly and securely for safe transportation.
  4. Selling the Snowmobile: Lastly, if you ever decide to sell your snowmobile, potential buyers will likely want to know its dimensions. By having this information readily available, you can make the sale process smooth and straightforward.


Knowing the average snowmobile dimensions can come in handy for various reasons. From purchasing a cover to transporting or storing your sled, having this information readily available can save you time and hassle. So, make sure to measure your snowmobile’s length, width, and height accurately and keep these measurements in mind whenever necessary.
