Get one of these. Gas, brake and two levers is all you need.

Tim,
I'm also just starting production on these:

Goes through mud, water, rough terrain, snow, etc.
Has true zero-turn.

Thanks
Kent

That looks like a fun machine, Kent, but I guess at my age I should be happy with my Polaris Ranger......it gets me most places I need to go.

Default Part 9 All Terrain Track Chair final assembly

Part 9 video is now available. I cover much of the small bits that have consumed time over the past few months, and also focus on the winch anchor leg assemblies with fabricating the final pins to replace the temporary pivot bolts.
I also designed, 3D printed, and installed a custom flip out lever handle for the main power switch.

And a couple of weeks ago I made further progress on this project by getting the roof on, part of the ramp flipper end, and the windshield frame on. Now working on the final pneumatic's for the windshield frame.
