My wife's uncle has an older Tucker. Some guy owed him money...instead gave him a Snocat

I haven't driven it yet. Some night it will happen after some beers...

We have tracks on our logging forwarder half the year. But not as cool as most of the stuff here.

My friends own this one. Paid $1 for it with the stipulation that it had to be removed from the property.

Awesome pics, everyone!

I always wanted to put Mattracks on my truck but Mattracks thinks they're made of gold. So, I emailed them about just buying tracks and the drive wheel so they email me back,

Mattracks "What vehicle do you have these on?"

Me "I don't own any, I just want to buy parts for a project."

No answer back from them. I am NOT going to spend $25000-$30000 on four pieces of rubber, some wheels and some steel.

I love the old Tucker pics! I have one of me with one I found in Fraser, right by the Amtrak station. I'll see if I can dig it up.

On a related note, I think I will build one of these but with some of my own modifications!

I have a very vague recollection of a Tucker or two in Fraser from when I used to live there.

That is pretty damn cool right there but I don't think they make the differential any more. I have one and the belt drive unit. Where would one finds a set of plans for something like that?

It's on ebay. The plans I mean, for $15.00. Downloadable via emailed zip file. He has CAD plans and parts lists. His site is www.personaltrackedvehicle.com

Northern Tool still has diffs: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...ct_35768_35768

These guys are located just down the road from me, a cheaper alternative to Mattracks.

I emailed American Track Truck. They're very helpful and good pricing.

Nice Tucker photos, guys, keep them coming!
