    I've seen those before. Looks like they would be great in the snow.

    Yeah, I hear they are very heavy and you need at least a 6" lift to clear them.

    The skidsteers(like a small loader such as a Bobcat) we have at work have a similer rubber track setup. They will go just about anywhere. They also only put out 2 lbs. per sq inch on the ground.

    thanx for the link.i liked the videos.i'd like to see them run those in 2 wheel drive and see how good they still do.like someone else said i would not want to lose my front drive for any reason while running those.that would be some crazy drag.
