Came across this video. I don't know if anyone's seen it but what a cool concept. Figures, just like anything made well, it was made years ago. Hope you guys enjoy if ya ain't seen it before.....

I've never seen the second one before. That thing really hauls.

"Even sideways, when the need arises" I bet that thing would be really fun around the Fla swamps... But you'd never be allowed in there for fear of running over a toad.

That first video shows up every snow season. I never get tired of it though!

It looks like it was such a good idea. I wonder what happened to it.

I wonder why the idea never caught on? That first one would have been perfect for winter on the farm, especially feeding cattle and hauling wood. Looks like it would work on anything with a PTO.

I bet you could do a lot of environmental damage with that drive!

I think you're right. Just look at the tracks that Chrysler model is leaving as it goes. Pavement probably spelled the end for these devices too.

With vehicles like the argo making production, you have to wonder why this idea never caught on SOMEWHERE. Like Alaska?

Would love to drive the second one. Ditch the slant 6, put in an aluminum hemi or something.......

I have seen the second one also, never the first. I think have one of those would be many different kinds of fun! I bet that the drive parts would be large enough to act as pontoons and work on water.

Here is one that somebody did that to a WH. Sorry, I don't remember where the picture came from.

That is kinda interesting for a gt. Would you actually be able to use it or is it for the cool unusual look?

My son has a remote control vehicle called The Terrain Twister and it operate the same way. It is an awesome design and I am surprised it is not used more frequently in heavy snow areas.
