Where's the steering? the 2 levers on the left seems awkward.

I'm guessing it steers with the foot pedals. Big dozers steer that way. You push the pedals to stop/slow either track. Pedals up= go. The levers are probably for the blade.

Yeah, at least need a fake wheel or bar to hang on to just because!  Forward/reverse on dash, guess brakes for steering. Really nice job, but out of my price range and not as handy to use as one might think?  Have seen a couple at Portland and other shows, but with diff tracks and controls. Saw those running around, still had wheel on them, but don't think it steered with it, just a handle. This one needs a "handle" too.

Fantastic work on that, track set up looks good.

 

I agree with Gary, one obstruction with that blade and that thing would have an a$$-skyward CAT hood ornament.
