ARPS Half Track

There was a company years ago that made a "Half Track" setup for farm tractors. You saw them mostly on 8N Fords, but they made them for other tractors as well.
Here's a link to pics of a Farmall M with them.

Has anyone done anything like this for a Bolens?

He uses it when he's pulling logs out, says there is nothing like it for traction. He also said you do have to watch it as it wants to come up once in a while, the back wheels never spin.
If you do a set for the Bolens, you may want to design some sort of roll over protection

Struck had a Half-Trac attachment for their Turf-Rider compact tractor and they made a full track conversion for the Ford 8n but neither went into production.

I wonder if the latter is designed with more safety. It would make the tractor a lot longer tho.
