See a lot of rigs like that in Quebec. Somewhere I have some photos of 'Challenger' brand tractor with tracks for snowmobile trail grooming (Nik's neighborhood in N. Maine).

It is pretty common to see little Chevy Blazers and such converted to a track system... not rated for highway use.... but good for grooming trails.

One of Scott's friends thought he was driving one of those, today. He called me, to pull his car out of the snow and ice in his back yard. Went out there, to get the trailer. Got about 15 feet, before needing a tow. Ed

Thanks Darrell, that looks like something I need around here. :lol: It's nice to see something different and refreshing for a change. I'm just glad nobody has posted that video of the screwdrive Fordson again for the 78th time. :shock:

I seen several at Yellow Stone a couple years back on a few different RV's
One of the boys told me the change over cost around $20,000 on a regular truck / van.
