Well I started a new build with parts I have laying around while my mini truck are is on hold. It's a tracked recovery rig. I'll get picks up soon

I don't even know how I did it. I am not good with this forum stuff but yeas that is the picture I wanted. It might not be what y'all alow but just like my truck it is using lawn mower parts to build. Working on removing the transaxle out of doner tractor right now.

Ya but that's an Argo. I'd love to have one. Mines just a concept. Been sitting in the barn for two hours thinking and starring. I just don't think it will turn. Wish I had a two lever valve a hydro pump and two hydro motors but all I have is a hydro static transaxle. Just trying to figure it out.

I remember someone else did something like this on here. I cant remember who though. Either way its still very unique. I like the use of the snowmobile track.

I'd like to see it. Getting these tracks was the biggest step in my mind. I think I'm going to do this simple and get the cab and other parts set up and later on add the tracks when I can afford hydrolics

Maybe try finding a cheap zero turn? Could always do the band brake on a transaxle thing too.

Something. I just don't think I can do it with the parts I have now. Just don't think there's enough power to turn it. But i know it will got straight threw anything lol

You could make this happen with two hydrostatic transaxles: lock up both differentials. Put one axle in front, the other in the rear. Now remove one wheel key on each axle (one axle drives while the other side spins but doesn't engage the wheel). This will make each axle drive one track. Make it so they can be operated independently and you have your steering!

Gotta make sure they are identical trans-axles though.

I thought about that but that's a lot of work trying to find the same transaxle I have now. So for now I'm going to make a half track kinda set up. And tires in the front for steering. The idle wheel for the half track will be slightly lifted as so it doesn't push the track to the ground but when in snow and mud it will help grab and move the machine along. I'd like to be able to still plow with this rig. Trail and error. Best to start with parts I have laying around before buying stuff.

Not really. It would just take a little more effort to match the speeds, but identical isn't necessary, just easier.

Military half tracks used some method of slowing down a set of tracks for steering along with turning the wheels.

Yeah. I'm going to mount the engine and transaxle on the frame and just go from there. Get everything set up how I want then down the road upgrade

Half-track would be cool!  Maybe do something like those old track kits for Ferguson farm tractors?  Should be a sweet build  Smile .

I had a cub that I turned into a tandem drive set up but being on such a small tractor and those tiny front wheels it just never worked right. Pushed snow like a champ but got stuck in anything more then two inches and would not turn on packed snow. So I'm stealing all the parts off that and building this. Adding a boom to the back to act like a tow hook. Larger tires on the front to clear larger terrain and a track setup in the rear for traction. Going to re fabricate my plow mount to work on it as well as make it were I can add doors and windshield in winter to stay warm with one of those 12 volt heaters. And maybe a radio to jam to. Lol.

As well as independent axle braking. To assist with steering as well as to aid when stuck

Well I got ahold of 2 1/2 ton wheel bearings and two eight bolt rims. Calipers and rotors for when I do set up the hydrolic system. But for now I'm just going to do like a rear half track.
