Looks like a very interesting conversion.

Gee, I've never seen a conversion like that. Looks like it was used on Devil Lake ND as a ice fishing resort vehicle would be my guess. I'd like to see how they bolted the hydraulic pump to the drive line. Thanks for posting this!

I agree, it looks like Hagglunds setup. Seems they are out of Roscoe Montana.

PJL,

Watch this video and I suspect you'll feel differently:

If you want the executive summary, it can be summed up in one word. Underwhelming.

Seems to not do so well in deep or steep.



That 5.3 is really wound out. Wonder how much fuel it uses.


Not the video I would post if I wanted to sell that machine.

That video makes an ASV track truck look like an upgrade.

Seems top heavy and the rear unit needs to be helping more. Maybe the ground PSI is high?? I agree, watching the video is less than a selling point.

Pretty sure that's the 3.7L I5 engine, from the Chevy Colorado. Definitely winding it out. I would take the original BV206 over that any day.
