Its not being wasted , its been used for its purpose . To take money from flat landers :tonka:

Mark who owns Eagle towing in Engadine is a bit excentric . He has a snowmachine made into a tow truck of sorts too

Heres the Info Mark sent me on this thing .

Nope ,that my man ,is an Otter .It is a tracked vehicle with a 3 speed transmission ,diferential ,powered by a 16 hp kohler ,steered with sticks like a dozer .
Goes great down snowmobile trails in the winter and in the sugar sand like a champ .
They were made for power line workers to take spools of cable through the muck .The sob will go almost straight up the side of a building .It will spin itself 360 on my cement drive right up at my house in front of the garage .Cool as hell and a hell of a lot of fun too .

Ever hear of this guy in Texas? He sounds like a legend in his own mind within the towing community.
