    Obviously better balanced than a normal hoe, can't even comprehend 55 MPH in one of them.

    Not so sure I'd be too excited in one of these, either.

    During the october snowstorm we had 2 of them in town to help assit clearing roads. they spent 3 full days working to clear over 50 percent of are roads that were blocked by downed trees.
    Everyday they came to eat at our firehouse as did all crews working in town. After given them a hard time about what they could be eating(mres) and some goodies it was ride time. You can'nt understand how awesome they are into you go for a ride. i can'nt talk about how fast it will go(online reports are close) but it will go that fast off road over rough ground. the models we had were fully armored the glass was 4" to 5" thick. The down side is mpg our guess is around 2.5 miles per gallon based on how much fuel they used over there stay in town. they fueled two times a day if not three.(our town is only 26 sq miles).
    we had no power for 8 day's but the ride was well worth no power.
