Bear Cat for sale. Made by Ferguson Research in the 60s. Very Rare. All wheel drive with hydraulic steering and blade. Wisconsin v4 gas engine. Manual trans - I am guessing its a 3 speed. Chevy 5 lug axles. Turns over so far but I have not tried to start it. Local delivery available. out of the 3 I have found pics of this is the only one that does not have a steering wheel, It steers with a detent valve like the kind on a log splitter. This could be one of the first ones made? Located in Western Washington on Whidbey Island.20160622_182220.jpg 20160618_173441.jpg

Nice find !!

 

I'd like to have it, but distance makes it out of the question.

Hope that thing is for Forestry or something, that sure doesn't need that power for plowing!!  Quite a big rig. Bet used like a dozer to pull logs and such??

So, give us a little background--

 

Does it run?

 

How many hours on the engine?

 

Any known major issues?

 

This would be a neat project to drop a little diesel engine into, and put a cab on it... almost like a quad ATV, but with more grunt to it.
