I saw that on Craigslist . I wonder if it was used in the muck fields. They use to run wide tracks. I would wonder about the bearings on it with the wide tracks

I believe it's set up for bog use.

Either it was a machine for use in cranberry bogs, or it was set up for use on peat bogs and other soft ground situations like utility line clearing, etc.

In northern MN, utility companies that have to service lines across peat bogs use this type of machine as it's the only thing that won't sink to China out there. Being this is from MI, I'd guess a similar scenario.

Wide track machines are still made. They are called LGP Machines. LOW GROUND PRESSURE. They are used in landfills and coal ash disposal areas where concentrated compaction is a problem.They distribute the weight over a larger area. That one could probably walk on water. I have worked on quiet a few over the years.

When I worked at the dealer I installed new pin and bushing kits in a few of those wide track crawlers like that. What a pain to reach up under the pads to get the nuts started on the pad bolts after I had the rails pressed back together.

I worked with a guy who got a #6 rebar caught between the pads on a track loader. It didn't hit him, but it laid a stripe across the hood. They come around fast like a big fly swatter.

I had a piece of 1/2 inch galvanized pipe come through a small opening in the floor boards of a dozer one time. It almost got me before I got the machine stopped. It hit my left leg so I could not push the clutch.

The Mennonite that I buy my seed corn from collects crawlers. That'd look good sitting in his shed.

I was running a 420C with standard tracks yesterday and the same thing happened to me- twice. It's not just wide tracks.

Is the undercarriage drive sprocket and roller “track width” spacing the same as a common 1010
