Get one of these and you can be on a single name basis with your local DNR officer in a matter of minutes.

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...

Probably the lack of any suspension at all.

That would beat you to death.

Wasn't there a guy on here that did something with a bobcat drive train and a sidekick? I almost want to say it had 3 wheels on each side.

I'd drive that thing around camp everyday.
