Nope never seen that one but I seen cubs with tracks but no bolens yet.

Any idea on sprocket size and chain size used on the tracks? I am thinking somthing like the struck set up.

I have thought of using #67 spreader chain. The crossbar links would be extremely adaptable. And how about this for an idea- a scale IH quad track of anybody's equipment choice?

Almost anything is possible if you set your mind to it. I'd say go for it! Just starting with an idea and then actually building it is good exercise for the mind and a heck of a lot of fun.
I built a crawler and used belting material used in round balers and bolted grousers and tire guides to the belt. Good luck on your project and if you need some brainstorming ideas post away and we will see how we can help.

My uncle has a set of Half Tracks for his Ferguson 40. There is never any traction loss. Last major ice storm, he spent the morning getting his neighbors out of the ditch & in one case, out to the main road. They look kinda like these.

Always thought it'd be cool to build a mini set. I'll probably never get around to it tho.
