Though yes, the ford was the inspiration for this thing as well.

I'll see your ZIL Jake, and raise you the fact that the Fordson, was developed in 1924! :)

The Russian videos have a 70's or 80's feel to them.

Scoreboard!!!!  :glad:LOL!

And the car is a mid '20's Chevy!!!!!


I wonder how long it took to change from car to screwmobile and back?


Would the snow be melted by then?

:cool: Where can I get an old garden tractor and a couple of 55 gallon drums? I could do some 1 to1 kitbashing.

I've thought about such a thing too, but it'd be reeeaaal sllloowwww, the gear reduction to overcome all that friction and whatnot. Not to mention ya might go nuts trying to design the transmission...

Can't be too much friction in snow- the Chevy was only about 22-24 HP.

Not that the Fordson was that much more.


Lets see----two old 100lb propane bottles, and a 350 with twin turbos--------
