Has anyone ever made a tractor with sno skis on front, maybe huge rear tires to make a snow-mobile like rig? They used to have 3 wheel change-overs for snow-mobiles, so why not other way around? Heck maybe someone has one with the tracks they offer for small stuff now??  How about some pictures if any around?  Guess it wouldn't be very fast, but fun as a play gadget.

I remember Will had ski's on the front of a Sears Suburban several years ago.   When he see's this he can chime-in.

A little off subject but?  I found this information on a 1967 Scatmobile I had back in the 1970s.  JLO single cylinder engine mated to a T92 transmission using snowmobile style clutches.  Then chain drive to three balloon tires.  It had both the front ski and wheel kits.   The kids had a lot of fun with it.
