Wow, that's interesting. Do you know if all 4 wheels are actually driven?

If so, that's an intriguing alternative to tracks. Presumably still better traction than normal wheels. But no unique/expensive tracks to eventually replace, if they broke. And unlike tracks, you'd still have the ability to use chains, if you needed more grip on ice.

Saw one on eBay recently in Iowa, guy wanted over $600 for it.

To answer your question, all four wheels drive, looks like they took off the tracks and added wheels for something different, don't think it's an advantage per se but it might be for some situations.

Here's a couple of pictures I've collected. Some had early electric powered chutes, some manual.

Yeah, I saw one of them in a video. Thought the 4x4 was a cool idea.

You don't see them very often which makes me think not that many were made. Parts are likely hard to find but that drive looks like it's sealed pretty well. IMHO they just seem way overpriced for the 4X4 novelty when it's likely MTD quality.

Interesting, wonder how it does in the deep snow?
