The Sno-cats we used on the DEW Line in alaska were a lot like those tracks. You could do the same thing on a cub with just the tracks it seems to me. around the rear and front wheels. This guy needed all that extra hardware because of the narrow front.

He can still stear the H using the front wheels, though he may need to assist with the brakes. To use them on a cub you would have to lock the steering and only stear with brakes. I know it's probbly no worse than normal, but that H just looks like a rear-up waiting to happen.

Never seen tracks on an H but I saw a track set up for a 9N. Some of the first tracks were used for the county snow plows and were also used on some Furguson TOs that were taken down to Antartica to transport suppiles from the supply ship to the expediton site. The tracks have an idler wheel that the front runs on You can see the spring that holds the idler wheel that is bolted to the rear axle. You still use the steering wheels steer no doubt that the brakes would be needed to assist in making a turn. Steve

My last memory of my rriend Paul Breckheisen on a tractor was on this Farmall C.

This picture comes from his estate sale bill. Photos of many other of his tractors are in Randy Leffingwell's books.

I did see a nice interview with Paul on RFD TV showing one of his many Silver Kings. It had to be filmed at least 10 years ago. (Paul died in 1997)

Bet I know what the owner of the H is doing with that chain wrapped around the drawbar on a nice icey-road day. :roll:
