They are a pretty unique take on the snowmobile. Most of the power equipment and tractor companies took a shot at making them.

My father had one and I have ridden it many a mile. Got it stuck a few times also. They are a real beast to get unstuck to.

I've only seen videos of these things. I think there is a club in Canada dedicated to the Diablo Rouge. I can see it as a real arctic work machine.
