B&M Fabrications Kicks Off Winter 2017/18 with Haydays

B&M Fabrications Kicks Off Winter 2017/18 with Haydays

Well, its August 13th. To most its just another day. To us it is 26 days, 14 hours, 20 minutes and 13 seconds until "The Official Start To Winter". Also known as HAYDAYS... the biggest snowmobile event in the world. People from all over the US, Canada, and more travel to North Branch MN just to attend. There are freestyle performances, UTV Racing, Snowmobile Grass Drags, music, and a ton of fun. It's where you go to see the latest and greatest from all the manufacturers, gear companies, aftermarket companies, as well as a HUGE swap area. 

We consider Haydays a major holiday. This even spawned the term "Merry Haydays" within our group of friends and relatives. It started with just going to spectate and camp for fun and then morphed into a unique opportunity to gain momentum for our business. What was once a quick weekend hanging with friends has turned into months of preparation, long days, late nights, and major dedication. 

Every year we use this event to show off and sell our new products for new model snowmobiles and UTVs, as well as all of our products from previous years. This also gives us an opportunity to meet a ton of our customers from around the world. 

This year we will be showing off our newest items for the 2018 line of snowmobiles and Polaris RZRs. We will have a huge colorful inventory of all of our products on site so make sure to stop by and grab some goods!

The New Ski-Doo Gen 4 chassis will be equipped with our latest set of skinny boards, New rear bumper options, as well as our popular EXO front bumper. We will have parts for the SP as well as the X. 

The Polaris Axys will see updated offerings of our EXO bumpers and running boards and we will have our NEW Sahen Skinner SS Slim front bumpers available. 

The new 18 Mountain Cat will be equipped with our skinny boards and as time permits we will be introducing some new items to be available early fall. 

We will also have a couple Polaris RZRs on display highlighting our custom cage work capabilities and some of our most popular products.

In addition to the above we have new options for our products like black hardware and a much anticipated new option for traction on our running boards! 

So if you are planning on attending make sure to stop by, check out our new stuff, say hi, have fun, and enjoy the countless things that make Haydays such a great event.

B&M Fabrications heading into the UTV market!

B&M Fabrications heading into the UTV market!

As the 2015/16 snowmobile season comes to an end you might wonder what happens in the B&M Shop.

In the beginning years... not a whole lot. We would usually finish up the last few orders of the season as they trickle in and put the shop on stand by until its time to get ready for Hay Days. Working normal day jobs etc and coming in at night if an order or two roll in. In the most recent past seasons we have started earlier due to high early season demand. Working hard a few months early allowed us to build inventory and get a head start on the year.

2015 was a big year for us as a company. We quit our day jobs and went full time.

A lot of people know we are a small company. A lot of people don't know that we are a three man operation. With growing daily orders and higher demand we were working later and later at night to keep up. Some days only getting an hour or so of sleep before we went to our regular jobs. It only made sense to quit our jobs to allow us to be in the shop full time. So we did it.

The 15/16 season was great. We worked extremely hard to refine our processes, upgrade equipment, add new vendor events, and start advertising on websites and forums. We focused on staying in touch with our customers and making sure we took care of them. We have built a large following on social media. This allows us to interact with our customers directly as well as show off what we have cooking in the shop.

We are looking forward to the 16/17 Snow Season and plan to double up and then some on inventory to keep our lead times low. 

So with that said, summer is coming. What does a snowmobile company do in the summer? We are headed into the UTV Market!

We are starting with the Polaris RZR and plan to expand our offerings as we can. We have designed 3 new products that are currently available on our website BMFabrications.com. 

The RZR EXO Winch Bumper

-1020 DOM 1.75" x .095" wall and 1.5" x .095 wall tube.
-Winch and lower plate 1/8" cold rolled & Laser cut steel.
-3/8" thick lower tie down plate
-CNC machined clamps for upper bumper support.
-Removable 1/8" brushed aluminum skid plate.
-Stinger opening will support up to a 6" LED Bar.

The RZR EXO Rock Sliders

Made from quality materials and tig welded for a superior look and high strength.

1 1/2" x .125 wall - 1020 DOM lower tube for high impact resistance.

1 1/2" x .095 wall - 1020 DOM upper tubing

 Sand Blasted and Powder Coated for long lasting finish and durability.

 

The Interior Cooler Mount for the RZR

This cooler mount utilizes the factory grab bar receiver. 

CNC bent and TIG welded 3/4" OD steel tubing.

 

 

All of our new RZR products are made in the USA with quality materials and are tig welded in house.

We are excited to venture into new territory and we hope that our good name in the snowmobile world carries into the UTV market.

Make sure to watch for us at new events, new forums, and keep an eye on our site as we add new products regularly!

2016 Polaris Axys EXO Front Bumper

2016 Polaris Axys EXO Front Bumper

We are happy to announce Polaris Axys EXO Front Bumper is now available! Subscribe to our newsletter below for updates!

The New Axys Exo Bumper was designed to have a refined fit and finish while keeping the popular styling of our EXO Series Bumpers.

 This bumper is constructed of 1"x 1/8th"- 6061 aluminum tubing. We have utilized the factory upper mounting points and hardware. The lower mounting will use the existing belly pan rivet holes through the bottom of the bulkhead with supplied bolts. 

We have also added a sturdy mount to allow the use of the factory spare belt/spark plug carrier!

With a goal of a clean fit and finish in mind, we moved the tubing closer to the body than in previous models. However this bumper will still allow you to run a skid plate. 

 

We have formed the side tubes to fit the stock side panel openings. Installation will require ZERO cutting to factory plastics.
