So, I was just watching a members video of a Ford crawler gt, and I got the idea of taking a set of atv tracks to create a half track gt...

Anyone think this would work on say a john deere 300?

I thought about it . And am still looking for the right things to make it work without spending 5K on the ATV tracks.

I've always wanted to do a G.T, version of the Fordson Snow Machine.

I can draw stick people!

I figured it would be a bolt up type conversion, maybe adapt atv hubs to the john deere...

Because of the short length and proximity to foot rests, you'll probably have to go behind with the caster wheels
