I just pre order a Viking vi. I‘m going to use it around my farm and a lot for hauling wood. I live in Kentucky so there‘s a lot of steep hills. I’m not worried about going 40-50 mph, but I just want to be able to haul heavy things up steep and sometimes muddy hills. So I’m wondering what improvements I could do. Any suggestions would be much appreciate.

One upgrade that I think is really worth on these Vikings is installing wet clutch slugs for stronger clutch engagement. If you're staying with stock wheels and tires, that should take good care of your needs. You could also do a machined sheave to get a lower starting belt ratio (lower gearing) if you find that you need it.

Yeah clutch work as above, and make sure that you use low range when hauling, if it's real muddy you might want to go to a lug tire but they will tear your tracks up more.
