I used one of those for many years back in the 70's.
They are a blast to operate but are notorious for throwing tracks when on a sidehill.
Just have the tools and "knowhow" to put the track back on.

I ran one for a couple of years, snappy little machine, but ther are a few quirks. If that model has the emergency brakes that contact the track, it's real easy to take off with it engaged and saw off some nubbins'.
On some of the models it has an emergency stop that puts a pin in the sprocket until the engine is running...my suggestion is to throw that pin in the swamp. because if you're going downhill and let the engine die, the pin jabs into the left drive sprocket and locks up the track. ( the steeper the hill, the further you tumble) ,We disconnected the hydraulics from it and used then to power a ram for a snowplow blade.
If your model seems to be extremely noisey inside, you can purchase bulk engine compartment sound cloth and glue it to the inside of the inside engine cover...it kinda helps.

We had one for a while and my Dad ran one in the oil field. If it has the original 2 stroke keep the oil mix right. You can burn the engine out pretty easy.

Seems they started making them again, called them the wilderness atv.
And here is another very similar unit:

Hydraulic motor power, steering and braking all done via a T handle, and no brakes if the engine dies. Very in teresting.
