Cool video, but I am not able to understand what is said...
Thanks for posting.
That was interesting to watch, does anyone have any pictures on the dual axle set-up and how it is linked together. The local snowmobiles trails cross the back of my property and that would cool to take one of these out.
This one is a narrow gage (44') that used a cantilever gear spring assembly and TT rear end(this one shown also has a Ruckstell). But the
skis are from a standard gage (56") there was also a 38" version. If you send me a PM I can send some info and pictures.
Can any one tell me how I can get in contact with this person, I believe it's from Russia.I
sold a set in the 80s that went to Austria and the person died in the 90's and I have not been able to locate it after that. I would like to know where he found it.They could have been shipped there in the day but no records of that have surfaced.

Just kidding, must be the spirits.
I've been to north poll ( AK.) but he will only except letters(requests)from the young NOT from old F##Ts like me.
Ho Ho Ho tis the season.
The owner of the YouTube account is in Russia. If you have a YouTube account, you should be able to contact him:
Also - there is a website listed:
Perhaps Michael Gotesman can assist you:
On a side note, the Model T featured in the video has a New Hampshire license plate.
If you go to
you will find a Russian forum discussion on this "crawler".
And it you go to:
you will find a translation from Russian.
You may be able to translate your inquiry about this vehicle to Russian and post it on the Russian version of the discussion forum.
Another option would be to contact a (the?) Russian member of this MTFCA forum and ask for assistance in getting information.
Thanks for all the help, will let you know what I find out.
I think the guy in the video is telling us the Russians invented the snowmobile first.
