here it is, it's been for sale for a while here in michigan, i have some property in the upper peninsula of michigan i thought this would work great for, i like the hagen transmission and i believe it to have a kohler motor the runs great, the port side track is not engaging but should be an easy fix, once i figure out how to bleed the hydraulic lines, looking for any information i can get on the hagen trans and this vehicle, i know not many were made, it sure looks simple as long as i can get info on the hagen trans and the kohler motor

any help would be greatly appreciated

good deal. I will connect with this guy and see how bad he wants to part with it.

I didn't get a good enough look at it to see if there is a mile or hour counter on it?

how many of these were made/ how many years?

not many were made, late 60's early 70's, only people that bought them were powerline companies and DNR people, didn't sell very well to outdoorsmen, you can still get tracks made but expensive
