Tracked pick up trucks
Interesting concept is right......................what I am curious about is what tire wear is like on something like that.
or the life span of the front hub / wheel bearings.
Looks like it might run smooth over ice or something like that .
What I see happening is getting the thing up to 25mph or so then hitting something under the snow like a small log or stump,rock or chunk of ice
and haveing the truck bounce higher than the track unit. Once things came apart in deep snow you would never get it to move to get things together.
One of those things that look interesting but the issues and problems would make it unworkable for most uses.
Has got to be one costly thing, you could likely buy a fleet of quads and snomobiles for the same cost.
One breakdown out in the boonies and you would have to spend a small fortune to get rescued and recover the truck or wait untill summer to drive it out.
I could be wrong but It looks like a problem waiting to happen
I like it.
I like the looks of Matt tracks instead
It seems like it'd be good as a toy and that's about it. If you REALLY have to get somewhere that wheels won't take you you use a Pisten Bully or a Muskeg.
A guy up here had them and they did not stand up to any abuse.
The front shaft kept bending/breaking.
Had to keep it under 20mph to make them last any amount of time.
I bet that thing eats tie rod ends like candy.
