Thats cool that they built a tracked buggy from scratch. I'm sure it does well in the mud. I am wondering how it will do on rough ground. Tracks don't like rocks.

Please wheel responsibly.

I agree that truck is badass, but they only showed driving fast on fairly even ground, how will it do on rocks and more challenging obstacles. Also showing its prowess by comparing it to two beat up chevys is not so impressive, that susburban was clearly marked at $500, how great of a vehicle is that, and the other truck had a plow receiver, no wonder the front end wallowed so bad, not to mention it was an early 80's model.

That Chevy truck with the plow is more like an early 70's modle. The Suburban is an mid late 80's modle. Both those trucks aren't good rough train Both those trucks are not good rough terrain off road vehicles, not much suspension travel. Rip saw looks to be a nice little machine, wouldn’t mind having one around.

this operator doesnt seem to mind...


personally i think that the rip saw is completely retarded. buy a Komatsu D575 if you want something on tracks that can go virtually anywheres.

shouldnt someone tell these professionals that super dozers shouldnt be operated in mines with rocks?

Another big Rip-Saw Video with a lot more details about the nature of the vehicle, the competition it was involved in and possible military uses of it.

I would suck on rock trails but it looks to be just the ticket to get to and from work in that pesky frustrating rush hour traffic.

I admit to being Crazy but I'm not Stupid

I think it would also do a great job increasing the resale value of my house if Rip-Saw just so happened to have a brain-fart and rip over the crappily disheveled house across the street from mine.
