    There are ads for that set up in a few of the trade mags many times.

    Yep, and the ads never have pricing, because you would have a stroke if you saw the price tag. I think Howard or maybe someone else posted that the Mattracks version, runs about $25K installed. :eek:

    With those on my truck plowing is the last thing I would be doing. Imagine the places you could go with those traks.

    It wasn't me who posted prices, but I have seen them in use.

    For 25k I would do something else (sno cat and trailer)

    Ground pressure is to high for seriously deep snow (over 2 psi)

    Ground pressure is to low for traction on plowing (kinda like the fat tire floating on top of the snow)

    Maybe through 1-3' of snow??? But I don't think you could plow three feet.

    I have not seen them in the mud, I think they might work there.

    But can you imagine driving on the road at 40mph with those things:eek:
