First, Yes, there is a few tracked PK's.  I think this is very old picture of one running around last few years. Last known to have been rebuilt in Ohio at a Woman's place where there is a PK and other show each year.  Can't recall names. That one is all done and pretty.  Another one was being worked on, but never heard if finished.  Some parts around, nothing complete. SO, if this is all-together, would be knew one to me.  It was built to fit PK and think a Cub Cadet was built and didn't catch on, very few made.  Steers with brakes, not the wheel.

It looks to have been sitting there a while. Bottom tread is either gone or grass grown through it.

I thought that as well but then the grass is all the same length and doesn't seem to have any growth directly against the tracks. If this was a factory kit that is really cool, looks like the tracks off of early bombardier snow units. Not vey reliable on the dirt but great in bog and snow, still in use in Alaska and other areas with very soft swampy soil.

Tractor Trax offered a kit for Cub Cadet and Power King tractors.

That is really neat.  But boy does it show you the ways times have changed.  A steel track running by your leg with no covers or guards, really neat design and concept. 

 

I wonder how many were actually sold and what they cost.  I seen some numbers on that one link username posted

 

Larry doesn't your brother in law live around Rachael, WV?

Looks like it cost $425.I think the one in the picture is the same one in the video.That is the only one I have ever seen in all the years I have dealt with PK tractors.

 

I had a kit several years ago but it needed a little more work than I had time for and it has been sold twice since to members of this group.

 

This is the Cub Cadet version.
