Very cool! One of my dreams is to have a shit-ton of mountainous property that gets a bunch of snow and run a snowcat to various spots on the land to clock runs. Wonder how hard it would be to mount a hydro blade on the front for sculpting take offs and landers?

was I reading that right? 182 hours?

Just like when you change out the speedometer on a 94 D90 that has 150,000 miles and its advertized as 50,000 miles, right?

More like 182 months of continuous run time

Rubber and drive sprockets look almost new and the track grousers look pretty good. Could have 182 hours. A lot of these machines sit forever. This is no good for snow, more of a mud/muskeg/mowing down trees type machine. It is huge!

Always wanted a Tucker. They are rare up here. Bombi Muskeg, Nodwell, Thiokol and some DMC/ LMCs are common. Once I finish the Rover I want to do a vintage Thiokol, like the one in "The Shining"

I cannot find a thing on the web about this particular beastie. I guess there isn't much to figure out. get the Cat hooked up to some plumbing (it is a nice 3208), radiator, winch, prolly new hydraulic lines. Put in some nice interior bits, and that's that. Looks like you can haul some tonnage on that deck.

Well if it's not good in the snow then I'll use it to make some mtn bike stuff. Although it sounds like it might be way too wide. Awesome looking vehicle tho.

You mean to tell me that whether you need it or not weighs into your decision making process?

Don, that thing is huge. It would plow through the bush like a tornado.
