    Some farmers are using those treads to get across their fields when it is too wet (they have chemical tanks and a sprayer boom). Interesting site. Don't see any applications for snowplowing though...

    We could torture test them with one snow event! I bet they could not hold up to us switching directions all the time. The full throttle reverses would toast them quick! Or the climb the pile pushes.

    In the snow season they are used on a FWD ford van to take people half way up the auto road on Mt. Washington. I think they call it the snow coach. It used to be on their web site, maybe still?

    I saw some of those on a truck at a ski resort in canada. I kinda wonder if they really need them, I think they only matter when they get a couple feet of snow, otherwise it is all pretty hard packed.

    They do show a truck plowing with them on in one of thier videos however it seems like a costly addition just to plow snow with but they will go anywhere that most vehicles will not.

    they ride rough as hell, farmer had a set for spraying and he said that it was a waste of $$ and it gives you a ****** turning radius, now he has 33"x16.5x16.5 superswamper boggers and he is fine in the fields. his opinion was "At $25k a set that will buy many sets of swamper tires and still have a good ride"

    Just so everyone knows, I emailed the guy and he is only asking $12500 for them. He also said feel free to make him an offer and you could probably own them. Joe

    I seen a truck like that here in Minnesota grooming snowmobile trails. It had those tracks on it and it was pulling a big grooming sled.
    I wonder how long power steering pumps last. Turning those huge tracks has got to be murder on them.
