I had seen that before but it was definately worth watching again.

A couple of 100 pound propane cylinders would be sized just right for a garden tractor.  :thumbs:

I believe it failed as being somewhat useless in deep powder snow,,,you would be hitching up the team.  This version running on water was not well thought out...it will run on water but floating is also a bit critical

I think the military has a updated versioning that. I also think that background music sounds familiar maybe from some 2 in the morning short movies I've seen. Wink Wink. What were we commenting on again? Must focus

There's a fellow in Gainsville GA that has one of those. We used to lease our shop from him and I even picked up some of his Fordsons when he bought them from around the country. His name is or Was Clint Puckett and I don't even know if he is still alive.

There was a "half track and skis" conversion for the model T Ford that was popular up until WWII.

For a couple years now I have had an idea floating amongst the brain cells.   Start with a donor ZTR mower .......       problem is there isn't  anywhere to run it other than in the snow.     But it would be COOL  to have.   Rick
