The bogies on the trailer are not powered the tracks are just for floatation.

It is an International 500 Snow Skidder. They were built in the 60's. It's basically an International 500 crawler with Alfta Tracks, more common in Scandinavia than here. The front bogies are on a walking beam which crawls over obstacles pretty smoothly. Lighter than a regular crawler they stay on top in the swamp pretty well. I use a skidway but don't have to worry about making roads. It has a Gearmatic #9 winch with 5 chokers 6ft. The grapple trailer is one I built. The grapple is a Gafner that came off the back of an International 500 Crawler a set-up more common in the U.P. The guy I bought it from just wanted the crawler not the loader. The wheels are also on a walking beam. The track is just old skidsteer track used for floatation, it's pretty wore but I'm not pulling anything with it, just riding on it. We usually skid out tree length and buck up on the landing but I wanted the option of taking it into the swamp if I have to. Right now we are using it mostly to load the truck and trailer.
The camera by the way is a Fujifilm Finepix XP135.
