Default Re: Built your own tracked vehicle?

Tanker, Shack there is a guy here in the valley that has a two track rig he built himself its about the size of an argo. It is powered pretty much as you both have thought out just needs some refinement. Small engine powering two hydro pumps one for each sprocket. Track is short enough that it has just one or two regular tires per side for road wheels and the track is coveyor belt rubber with angle iron bolted through it for traction.

Works well enough to get him back off the road three miles or so during moose season and is stout enough for him his gear and a quartered moose. Seen him the last three years on the same trail. Maybe Tanker and I can stake out the trail this year when moose season comes around Shack you could come too as long as you bring the bourbon.
`Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president.
Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)

To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, right or wrong - is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)
