My grandpa built something like that. I was only a 6x6 and he put 3 trannys in it to gear it down. I will see if I can find the pics. lol He said they used it fo farming. He said it would pull 4 trailers through the field and no one had to drive it, you could just let it go and get off to work while it was moving. he also said it was so slow he could get off walk to the front of it, go pee, and when he was done he had to walk back to get back on. lol

ThAT THING IS BADASS! But how scary would it be to be in that drivers seat? No sides and REALLY high in the air. It would be a hell of a ride.
