Default Big island Hawaii snowcats

I drove by them once getting some wood for our cabin in pahoa. I searched the forum then I thought I would ask. Anybody know the brand the old resort bought? I will be going to check them out soon!(WIFE SAID LEAVE SHOP SEE THE SUN) You never know might be parts or something somebody wants. The port isn't too far away. I know 1 is complete. Sun I'll teach her. I will still take snowcat to liquor store still ha!

Lyndon if he is watching may know of the machines you are speaking of. Hopefully he may. I remember being told of a hotel in AK that used ST's to transport guests to and from in the winter, but little else. Please include more information in your posts. Must be on a phone?

Regards, Kirk

The cats I'm talking about are old ski resort ones regular groomers on the big island of Hawaii. They are sitting in a cow pasture. I asked around some and was told at the end, the resort was using them to tow people up and give rides because they had no lift at the time. Can almost be certain that they came from Cali. I was too immersed in scrounging jungle for willy's pieces for my 59 highhood at the time. I will scope it in week or so. If it's there I got a small plas can rent torch anything will fit in budget return west coast connex.

Here's a Thiokol with a Ski Hawaii sign. No idea if it's actually there or not:

that would be a lmc 3700 hydromaster and that hood indicates a 3208 cat motor they are heavy about 10,000 pounds and 12 feet wide the tropical environment appears to have been hard on it to justify the expense of shipping it home it would have to be free the shipping north on my 2700 was almost a deal breaker I spent twice as much as the purchase value on shipping alone.

I'm gonna check it out just to avoid another tropical plant show. Besides I might time lapse the decay. I know nothing of these machines except it's always the one damned piece on anything mechanical that gets you. I hate seeing things in the grass in unused and modified.
