    That is probably one of the coolest things I have ever seen! Some technologies I have no idea why they were never implemented. That would be the ultimate snow/swamp/terrain machine. Capable of hauling 20tons in the snow is incredable. Why the military has never used it either is crazy, that is less moving parts than tank tracks and seems just as capable if not more.

    I have seen this before and it never fails to amaze me how after 75 years they would be hard pressed to come up with something that goes any better in 4-5 ft of snow than that thing does............... unreal that it was never developed ............:nod:

    Kabota there has been quite alot about this Model T snowmoble on a TV show on RFD TV called "Our 5 Sons" it is shot onsite at Rainy Pass Lodge up in Alaska and a guy that has guided up there for 40 years is from NH originally and he just bought one that had a prestine restoration done on it .................... they flew it to Alaska from NH
    in a jet then out to the lodge in an old "skyvan" might want to check it out??:salute:

    This old tech is actually pretty incredible for its day. Yet it didn't take off back then, can just hear people back then saying " who would want a snowmobile "? thats dumb nobody will ever buy one.....duh?

    A tractor that moves on snow? What an idea almost nothing compares even today.

    I'll have to check the tv channel listings. We used to get RFD TV, but like so many things they always get rid of the good stuff but I can shop 24/7 on 6 different channels. I will try and check it out thanks.
