hi ,has any one had experience with the Thomas T320.basically a 2 meter wide skid steer and thomas has fitted rubber tracks to it.instead of wheels and rims they have fitted huge asv type sprocket cages instead .that would solve the ratcheting and tearing off of lugs that asv is renowned for.It does look strange but I may be able to get one very cheap,will try anything twice.thanks for any input

That was Thomas's version of an OTT CTL, it has 2 rollers on the bottom and a top speed of 12 km/h.

Looks like sprockets in the place of wheels with tracks over those...

It was a good system, but a modern CTL would still blow it away.

Thanks ron for putting up pictures I would have if I new how.It is on utube ,type in Thomas T320 .
12 kmh in low gear ,top gear 20.3 kmh and that is faster than any mtl or ctl out there at the moment .
I have heard that it has been discontinued which is a mager negative.
there is one ex demo I have heard about has 400 hrs ,ac and heat ,tilting 4 in 1 bucket and spare set of tracks,
Bargining started at AUD $87k down to $50k aud so far have offered $35k aud,so will see what happens.
