    I came across this at a used commercial truck sales lot today.
    What is it and who has made them in the past. I'm just curious.

    Take a shot and say it's for patroling snowmobile trails and clearing them when new snow falls...

    Bombardier...... We had 2 for our sidewalks. Twin stick steer. Incredibly fast. We had the V-plow for it also. They were a blast to run. I agree..... Unstopable.

    If I may ask why did you get rid of yours? And how did they hold up over the years of use?

    Mow Me,

    We replaced them with 2 Trackless MT's. We had to go with a multi-season machine with 3 point hitches. They were about 18 years old when we replaced them. We got rid of them because we have a replacement schedule we have to follow. (I have a Municipal Fleet)
    They were not very difficult to maintain and were in good shape when we auctioned them off. They are relatively simple machines, but it is basically a one season machine and it is hard to justify having it sit the rest of the year.

    Regards,
    Rich

    OK I just got off the phone where this is for sale. They said that this one in the picture is sold but he has one just like it and this one has the power angling and power up and down, the one in the picture was manual angling. He said that it is around a 1969 or 1970 but he thinks the second one for sale is a 1969.

    They are asking $3,500.00 for it and their phone number is 703-392-7900 and it is Toms Truck Sales in Manassas Virginia.

    If you need anymore help just let me know.

    Justin
