I'd say judging by the fact that all the lug nuts all all 3 wheels are in the exact same spot, and no visible drive lines, or suspension linkage for the axles. Thats is not a real truck.

But I could be wrong.

Here we go:

"This deals with a tracked vehicle as with the already shown models U411 and U421. The conversion was performed by the company "SCHMIDT" from St. Blasien. The fuel tank was stowed on the Pritsche. The base model was a U406. The photos are from 1968"

Sounds like there were more pics.

I thought it was going to be a Mattracks thread. Quite pleasantly surprised!

Oh, here's a picture I saw at a welding shop; a guy made a skid loader type of dealie out of old tractor tires.

I would suspect brakes have been seperated left side and right side but the actuation would be interesting to know.

Links like that don't bend to the sides.

What a coincidence, I just saw a similar contraption on CL advertised as ultimate moose rig. it has tracks wrapped around three wheels and a skid steer arrangement braking either side to steer, its a home built unit and only $800.00.
