Tracked Vehicles

Let's see them!

Some I found on Youtube

Homemade ride-in vehicle


Homemade stand-up vehicle


Then there is the DTV Shredder for $5000

Nice, but $5600 ($5300 cheapest track and $300 cheapest shipping) is a lot of money for what it is. I know, when you're one of only a few companies doing it you can charge whatever you'd like.

Of course, that is nothing compared to a Snow Hawk which starts at $16600.

I bought plans for the little tracked vehicles in my first two videos. Supposedly one can build the sit-down version for around $2000.

I think this would be more fun than tracks!

There are less expensive makes, but I like this one, and for the money I think it would be a lot of fun, more so than most other tracked vehicles. The maintenance would be much easier too. I am not sure, but I would think the resale value would be better than a snowmobile because it will work with a number of different motorcycles (you just get a different attachment kit).

The snowbikes seem like more fun because they are faster and more nimble, but these seem nice too:

Nice, guys, keep them coming!

I hear ya, Code, I sure wouldn't mind having one. That is if I had a bike that fit.

Minisquatch, are those Prinoths? One of my friends on here (JjustJ) grooms for Vail Resorts with a Prinoth Bison. I drove it one night; it was a blast!

JamesG, is that an A1 or A2? I was watching Greatest Tanks Battles on Netflix this morning. Unbelievable machines!

A1. No "R2D2" CITV on the turret. This is an easy way you can tell an "old" A1 from an A2+.

Neat fab skills, but I kind of like the Hagglunds in its entirety.

Oh, yeah, me too. Nothing beats the original.

Cumminsman76, those are sweet screw machines.

I think it would be fun to build an RC version of that.
