Not a truck, not a dozer, but is an experimental platform for a dozer in addition to cutting a hillside that is so steep it is hard to stand on it.

Used the wiper motors and a sabertooth 25 dual. The tracks have too much grip on grass and it doesn't turn well going uphill. On smooth surface no problem, and downhill no problem

The video starts on a 45 degree incline, the video person tilted the camera

When climbing and turning, stop the outside track, reverse the inside one, then throw power to both tracks. I have to do that on my gutless mini x!
Cheers!

There is just too much grip on grass for that to work. Works fine on hard surface, just not in the grass going uphill. Does turn fine going downhill.

Ya I am pretty happy with this. Those were biggest motors I could find, could use bigger/stronger
