Do you suppose that outer wheel is driven, or freewheel?

It's chain driven.

I have seen a different model up close, and as BD said, it is chain driven. A chin goes up the housing from the differential, to a shaft across the top, and another chain down the outer side to the wheel.

a cool piece, but moving it requires dissassembly and lots of rigging. storing it might be a need a tall door to get it inside.

i'd like it...but too many toys - so little time!!!!!

Neat now someone can make an fcub like that.

Near Orwell,VT there is a very large barn with the biggest barn doors i have even seen in the northeast on a farm here. This is were the land in VT flattens out to very large fields. As we drove past this barn this farmer has the biggest 4x4 dual wheeled john deere tractor i have ever seen. But the opening of the barn doors was huge.
