Any sightings ??

I'd really like to get one of the big tracked machines. If anyone comes across one would appreciate a heads up.

Thanks
Mark

By your subject line, I thought you were looking for Santa Claus. I have seen him all over the place in recent weeks, but I did not notice any of those big machines in his sleigh. Those things must be a bear to wrap...

Work fascinates me.

Possibly dbert may know. He's the only one I know who has the DeLorean. Similar machine. Ronin? But he's in Japan.
The only one I've personally seen was halfway up a mountain in Innsbruck, Austria a couple years ago.

Would love to talk Ronin into crating one up and sending it my way.

I think it's been two years since one hit the market and I'm sure kinckin' myself in the rear for not going out to CO and grabbing it. It was a bit beat up but it was cheap and had a nice 20hp diesel on it if I remember correctly.

I think dbert has one and may know where some others are. He and Ronin are the big track machine experts here.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I saw one on Ebay a few years back and that one in Colorado was listed in their online classifieds, KLM. I still have that search active. I try Craigs once in a while just in case. It just takes patience and persistence. Sooner or later one will break and it will be more than the owner wants to deal with. I figure it's going to pop up at a resort or lodge in the Rockies or similar in the north east. It's going to be a drive either way.

The only thing I feel bad about is after five decades of moving snow in this area it really does seem like the winters are getting milder. For the last three or four it's not often I need to even take the blower out. Just drive over it to get to the road. Living with my folks back in the 70's and 80's we always seemed to get a lot of 12" + snowfalls and now it's seeming to be rare. Might just be a cyclical thing and they'll come back around hate to think it might actually be climate chance and my really good snows are becoming a thing of the past.
