michigan-xm549-8x8-1963.jpg

Michigan XM549, 8x8, 1963. Michigan Equipment Company fitted with light tracks and tension idler. This articulated vehicle with walking beams was highly mobile. Nevertheless, tracks lowered speed and required maintenance, increased noise level, the time to mount and disassemble tracks was too long and the payload lowered due to the mass of tracks. Picture from book of Fred Crismon ‘US Military Tracked Vehicles’, Motorbook International Publishers & Wholesalers, 1992.

Meili Tracked Snow-Flex designed in 1966-67 by Ernst Meili Jr, for Celerina resort, Switzerland. The principle of the famous Wheeled Flextrac of Meili in 1958 was applied again to this tracked version. The tracks ramming became more and more planed and non-articulated groomers, less expensive, did the same work. Unfortunately, it was discontinued.

Nami SZMU, 'Honeycomb' track increased traction but lacked reliability. At the end of the 60s, it appeared that 'scientific work was very interesting but practical application of thoses structures was not very clear'. 40 year later, ecology (permafrost on the toundra) could help to remind pneumatic tracks.

Iguana-Vehicle-of-David-Hansen-1.jpgiguana-of-david-hansen-2.jpg

David Hansen, graduated of Utah University, 25 years of sales engineer with degrees in aeronautical technology and industrial engineering worked since 1988 to an improved marginal tracked vehicle mainly for civilian use. Iguana Technology was created. First proto was a quad bike with tracks and the second (1991) a little John Deere tractor equipped with the new tracks. The third, on left picture, was the result of Iguana Tech and TSG Technical Solution Group since 2000. Pict from the review 'Military  Machine International', July 2004. See Chap 'Changes around the track II. Mid 90s.      http://iguanatracked

Iguana-Vehicle-of-David-Hansen-2.jpg

Third prototype for M22-Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft program had not been chosen because too heavy. A fourth and last proto, on left, was presented in 2004 and regroup all David Hansen's patents. Pict from  www.atavinc.com

Iguana-Vehicle-of-David-Hansen-3.jpg

Front of track of Iguana shows the centrally pivoting walking beam, as agricultural tractors.The patented rubber cone track provides maximum traction and no damage the ground. Ground pressure is less than 0,07 kg/cm² and speed on land or water about 60 km/h. On water, the front of the vehicle is raised thanks to cylinders of pitch control and the vehicle is propelled very fast by means of its tracks only. Pict from 'Military Machine International', Sept 2004.

Iguana-Vehicle-of-David-Hansen-4.jpg

Iguana Vehicle has numerous patents. In addition of centrally pivoting bar, the suspension is provided by the combination of track tension (patented), pneumatic tyres and idler wheels, while rear section, with the engine, is patent pending pneumatic sprung and very simple. Pict from 'Military Machine International', Sept 2004.

Iguana-Vehicle-of-David-Hansen-5.jpg

I bought the WNRE "Polecat" from a junk dealer in Harvey,La. He got it from an auction at Keesler AFB. It was painted orange with markings: WES TV-3. I did some research. WES is Waterways Experimental Station. That's the US Army Corps of Engineers (Vicsburg,Miss.) experiment facility for rivers where scale models are used to tame rivers etc. Also its where oddball vehicles were tested. I deduced that my "Polecat" was at least the third one tested hence TV-3, TEST VEHICLE #3. There is a museum vehicle "garden" at the location also with a "Polecat" on display. I contacted them to donate mine. They said no thanks. I bought it to utilize the tracks for my "Weasel". Hurricane Katrina nixed that. After watching the "Polecat" rust away and no one wanted to buy it, sadly I had to sell to the scrap man just this past Fri. and erase yet another truly rare vehicle from existence.
