Very cool video! Great opportunity to drive that kind of machine.

I haven't dug into the details of the drive yet, but it looks like the two tracks always drive together, no differential action?

EDIT: Answering my own question - been going through the pictures and diagrams, and it DID have a differential mounted between the tracks.

These videos are fascinating. It definitely wasn't a zero turning radius vehicle though was it??  :ROFL:

Been reading through the articles from the museum website, the parts list document has amazing detail of all the parts of the hauler, not measured, but pleny good enough to recreate the parts given the measured arrangement drawings and the other info in the articles, pictures, and models. Think this is definitely my next big project! Just gotta finish my Corliss, and maybe a clock project I've been putting off for a while (small tower clock with a grasshopper escapement). Good to have several things all going at once. Oh yeah, and the lobster boat hull that I won in the raffle in Carmel, and updating the motor/radio in my Sabino model to get that back in the water. And finishing the polar bear carving.... And maybe one of those steam hammers... Gotta find some castings to fondle somewhere too...   :insane:
