I'd drive that thing around camp everyday.
I almost bought that thing. Would have been fun for a little while. It was on craigalist about 5 years ago.

Seriously though the hydrostatic drive would rock.

Wonder why no one has ever taken a old bobcat, plasma cutter to lighten it, made the tracks longer, and turned it into a very capable trail only rig for half the price of a razor. Just think you could even use the accessory drive to run a winch for pulling others out. Humm wonder why no one has ever thought of that...
Maybe you should redesign your tube, box, buggy, thing, what ever you want to call it to take a bobcat drivetrain. It would be sweet, you should do it!
