Does it adapt to a 1/2 ton pickup?

That would pull a wheel house out. Probably not too good on ice though.

The original screw propulsion snow vehicle was designed in 1944, during World War II, by Johannes Raedel, a soldier of the German Army and veteran of the Eastern Front. They got the year wrong. I've seen the same video from about 5 different years.

Pretty cool though, The lighter models float on water and would be great for any ice conditions. I need one for hard water fishing! smile

That was just to friggin cool. Such a simple concept, even by today's standards. One of the best things I've seen today.

Awsome machine better than tracks it looks like and less parts to freeze up. I can see the mouse wheel a churning in my head as I type with that light bulb over head.

Lets make it float... I have the shop space, welders, presses and lifts.

Get an old tractor that needs a little tlc and were set.

I wonder if rotomolded plastic would work for the drums?

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
