Just got in from a bit of a road trip, with "My Segway"

 

Thanks to member jtrojek (Jamie) who found this for me. Also met a couple great

guys, Henry who no longer owns this, and his friend Mike (also a GTT member).

Also, I met up with DH1 (Doug),who helped me out big time, AGAIN. Thanks Doug.

He changed my trailer tire for me, as my back was hurtin.

 

Anyway, here's Segway. Does anyone know anything about it.

It runs, drives, but needs some TLC. And of course, custom attachments and bling.

Will you definitely have my attention. I have no clue what that is! My w/a guess would be that it is a trenching machine w/0 the boom.
Most I have seen were on rubber, but know case /davis had a ride on crawler tf300 I think.

It's a old Ditch Witch trencher from the 40's I think.

That's a cute little bugger.

I totally agree with this statment, with those short tracks. Nothing like a half-track with skis on the front!

That little guy is a big bucket of awesomeness.  It looks like it would be an absolute riot to drive around, and is indeed the greatest "Segway" ever.  Can't wait to see what you do with it.

I wonder what you're supposed to hang on with while you steer...
Looks like a cool critter, this will be fun for you.

I believe it was part of the NASA Lunar program from back in the 60s.

 

I think it would make a great mobility scooter to tool around in Walmart.

As Jamie said above...   AWESOME!!

 

If you move the engine out in front of the platform it sits on top of now, and lower it some,  you could put a seat on the back and it'd balance out even with those short tracks. 

 

Then you could ride!!  A blade on the front - then you could play!  :thumbs:

Thanks for the comments guys.

It is cool, isn't it. I have it sitting on the trailer at work. Every time I get near it, I

get distracted, and lose focus on work.

I've gotta move it, or I'll never get any thing done.

 

I have a few ideas, on what I might do with it, one being a 6 way blade. But first is to

refurbish it. If anyone knows of a blade that might fit the bill, please let me know.

 

I have found 2 pics on the net.

It sure looks like the one on the trailer in the snow.

That would make it a Ditch Witch M4 Trencher.
