Very cool. I was chatting to a guy for a while about one that was described just like this... he had restored it and donated it to the gov't but he had said it was a 601 and he knew cats...man, I was after him for MONTHS on that one then gave up when they decided to keep it but maybe they flip-flopped... maybe just a coincidence! Very nice setup... BUS INCLUDED! Wow.

Ahh.. nope... just modifying my post... found this one you just bought. Colorado. Different guy. Cool find though! I can breath well as that 601 is still out there calling...

Just saw that rig for sale at SafetyOne. Almost went for it, but I would rather have a 601. No more 601s for Painer Mainer!

ok, ok. I need to have one 4T4 and maybe some more 602's... but any 601's I'll forward. I may be all done as well... who knows. Focus is a 4T4 but I should just stop now. But, with that said, I reserve the right to grab 4T10's though given some folks don't like them due to maintenance, blah, blah, and they can be more reasonably priced so I can beef up the numbers...and they have the unique personality with the power divider... infrastructure only an enthusiast can luv. LOL.

ps... I saw it somewhere else ... I believe he didn't pick it up at safety one ???

LOL - mind asking what you DID pay for it? I imagine quite a bit less than $12K......

He got it for a pretty darn good price. Even I'd have gone for it at that price. SafetyOnes price wasn't even including the bus!! Got it out of Monte Vista, right? Don't know how I missed it, I went through there a few months ago and I'm usually pretty good at spotting these things from the road.

yes, Monte Vista and that pic is in the same field were were test driving it in.... It was parked behind a barn and some out buildings..well hidden. I found it for sale when i typed 4t10 on a google search. It was close enough for me to consider and so I hired a pilot to fly me and my buddy out to look it over. We knew about the bus so if we liked it we drove home.... if not we flew back. 2 hour in a plane 14 hours in a bus!

Default Re: THIOKOL 4T REGRISTRATION PAGE

yup... here are the remnants...
http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache:...n&ct=clnk&cd=5

so close and yet so far...
But then again...Bob has a 4T10 just sitting around ITCHING for him to buy it... but he won't! Grrrrrr! 8(

Found it couple nights ago...pre-safetyone ...but of course...that was TOOOOOOOOO late! LOL

With that being said... it shows how safety one operates. They did the same thing with that spryte not long ago... took it in, blasted it with paint (right over the lettering), and tossed it up for something ridiculous more.

On the 1450 on eBay right now... someone posed a question..."What would one of these go for.." the answer came ... new $100-140K... of course that did not answer the question.

Anyway, safetyone is awesome and unparalleled for safety courses, etc... but their machines are pricey and from what folks have consistently told me...they take them in and resell them w/o any work. They've not been to active over the last 12-18 months...having this Trackmaster is surprising...but it was nearby so I think that's how it happened.

The bus combo thing is just TOOOOOOOOOOOO cool.

ps... $12K is insane.

But y'all ... Boggie has a good 601 that I'm sure you could pry from his iron fist...with some sweet talk... (interpretation... ask Karin to sweet talk it away).

Found on a ranch near Goldendale, WA. Owner had it sitting in their yard for a few years hoping to eventually repair it. They recovered it from the ranch of a friend where it had sat on a hillside for many years. That owner had acquired it from either a govt agency or utility company. They used it to reach the ranch in the winter and to carry family and friends on ski outings. At some point it broke down enroute and there it sat for many, many years. It's first career was in the service of the USAF. Now it has been delivered into the less than deserving hands of SnoOps. He hopes to gut the power divider setup and install an automatic transmission with an OC12 differential. We shall see...

One down, two more to recover.

Thumbs up Re: THIOKOL 4T REGRISTRATION PAGE

Purchased off Ebay from the terrible Ivan in Greeley, CO. He had repainted "everything" and many problems to start with, but seems to drive OK and has some good things... New tracks, wheels, tires, interior tweeks - I'm optimistic and hope to work on restoring it as we go, then do a real one sometime in the future. Will be used as our transportation to our cabin and haul friends up the mountain for backcountry skiing... and hopefully more as we go along!
