    Has anybody ever heard of these?

    It almost looks like a joke! Unless you had a lot of snow or muddy terrain, I don't see how they would work too well, but I might be wrong.

    Yes, they use them up here. They were much more common on Model A's and before paved roads. Still good for poorly or non-maintained roads (which Maine has several). Just can't drive very fast or turn very sharp. But it will go anywhere - up over drifts...

    Here's the heavy-duty model! :D

    This was actually done during the development of the elevated sprocket Cat dozers, never actually sold 988's equipped this way. Too bad................... :p

    There is a ski resort in VT that has them on a Chevy. Can't remember which one. Maybe Stowe? They use it for bringing materials up to the top during the winter. Not sure how well they work exactly.

    I seem to rember seeing a price for a set at (hold you breath) $17,000.00! Could be wrong though.

    I'm not sure but I do remember seeing those on a TNN truck show and them saying they are 2k+ for each unit, but that was a long time ago (a few years) so I could easily be wrong :rolleyes: .
