    There really is nothing much difference from that and a skidder which Cat has been building for years. A skidder sees harder service than a farm tractor. When is a farm tractor running over rough terrian or working on steep grades.

    Cat will market it to the farmers as a revolutionary idea and charge them lots :laugh:

    What is each tire worth ?

    You have 8 tires they got to be 2500-3000 each maybe more.

    Tanks are anydrous amoni(spelling) that they incorperate into the field.

    I liked the video though but I wonder how they compare to JD 4 wheelers. That is all you see around my area. A few cats with tracks but mainly JD's.
