Not surprising.Vehicles with tracks like these give company to snow-mobiles and sledges in the Arctic and other freezing locations round the globe,where cars with normal footwear(even with chains)won't even budge an inch.An efficient mode of transport to traverse though snow in those parts.Here's a similarly modified bio-diesel gulping Humvee.

Thats a Mat Track conversion on a H1. This accessory is as expensive as the vehicle itself.

There was one Gypsy in Himachal which had a similar conversion. I don't know if still exists.

Boys and their toys.

Artic "tundra buggy" for viewing polar bears.

Southern United States "swamp buggy" for traversing swamps.

Ground clearance, baby, ground clearance.

Yes, it does!! And it had Mat Tracks.
Was steered with a hydraulically assisted "joystick"
Still with the Aussie owner I believe.

I am wondering how the Jeep in the first post is steered. Tank uses individual drive train for left and right track. But doing similar job on this jeep must have required immense expertise.

Have come across quite a few of these on different websites.

But I never imagined a Gypsy in Rohtang, been there but missed it. Will make sure it try to get to it the next time I go. Any close ups by any chance, of the Gypsy

Not a problem at all SirAlec, all you need is for it to be in 2WD and individual braking (left and right circuits separate).

The differential does all the work. It will go straight as usual, when you want to steer right, gently apply brakes on the right and the left will swing out. Similarly if you lose traction on one side, apply brakes on the opposite side and it will compensate. The braking system can be made smooth and connected to a steering wheel.

This is the system prevalent in light earth-moving equipment as well, maybe earlier tanks had something similar. I am not really sure what tanks use these days.

thanks for the insight.

BTW This uses a completely different differential ripped from something, but question is from which vehicle.??
