I just did a quick search of the site seeking this info, but came up with nothing obvious in the first page of results. Perhaps I should've looked further, but figured I'd inquire via a thread.
I'm contemplating a project that I would hope to finish putting together by next Fall, if finances permitted it.
Anyway, I'm considering acquiring an older (perhaps later 90's to early 2000 series) Honda Foreman, etc., and some good used tracks to switch out the wheels/tiresd for something like Mattracks.
If I can pull that off successfully, then I'd like to come up with a suitable meat wagon (possibly double-axle) with a cover, tie-downs for the top, and removable drains in the body.
All of this would primarily be for a specific area I access on a fairly regular basis.
Has anybody played with these things? Pros? Cons? Pulling a beefy meat wagon (no pun intended) with one of these things in fairly rugged terrain? More hype than functionality? Use in muskeg and notably wet areas such as moss over wet and permafrosted tundra that turns to quagmire all too quickly?
If functional, what might a decent used set of tracks run that would give sufficient (improved) ground-clearance and consistent performance for the 4-wheeler referenced?
Also, is there anything in particular that a person should look for, either in a new -or- used set of these type tracks, that would indicate whether or not they're in disrepair or have been abused?
