The HD is a F750 and the other model is a F550 so they will both pull a horse trailer with no problem. I had a F350 duelly and it would pull anything I wanted it to.

Jesus, nice but huge profit margin soaking off the rich ppl. I'm thinking just buy a 5 ton or maybe LVS off govliquidation and build your own for maybe $100K'ish. S/F....Ken M

Looks cool. With a GVW of 33k and a breakover angle of 12 degrees, plan on spending ALOT of time stuck.

I was about to say I like the price tag on yours better but actually I'm not too sure. :biggrin:

No outboard motor?

I try to avoid open water. I'm normally alone or with 1 passenger in which it is VERY nose heavy and not confidence enhancing when outright floating. Gotta have a few hundred pounds in the back to level it out, and even then, the freeboard is scary (also has no forward motion with the tracks without an OB motor). This is a muskeg machine, and the best I've operated on the muskeg including a SUSV.

Hate the suspension (or lack thereof), but love getting there every time, regardless of season or swamp conditions.

Only winched once, and that was during breakup with punky snow/slush about 18" deep over top of a foot of water, over top of ice- kinda floated, kinda lost traction.

Spinner 23 September 2017 15:59

Definitely could ride out the apocalypse in style with that thing.

You're on it. Met this couple parked across the street from my office in Kirkland this summer, the day before they headed up to Alaska. The dude is very knowledgeable and helpful. I think he's got a bit more than $100k in his, but it's extremely well done.

The EarthCruiser on the Fuso has been the object of my affection. Just unplug from the hive and go.
