Never seen one of those up this way. A different take on the snowmobile than the main stream!

Look up Diablo Rouge. What your looking at is the forerunner to them and both are built on the same format. The Diablo Rouge means Red Devil and of course were red where as the earlier versions were yellow. If you ever get a chance to ride one do it. They are a blast and are very maneuverable in wooded areas.

Yes, The yellow ones came out before the Diablo's
The cleats on the tracks were wood I believe.

Hus ski cleats are made of wood.


The Hus Ski Model 444 built in 1965-66 utilized a 10.4hp JLO Motor.
