1926 Snow Tractor - rare original video of an invention by Henry Ford that never went very far. I wonder how it would go on sand.

Thats Ok Fred.
I thought it was a very interesting design - revolving threaded drums. It seems to work well on the snow.

Well found Mandrake, when I saw the original post I remembered seeing that and some similarly driven more modern vehicles but could not remember where
