Found this while cruising around on the internet. Thought some of you would get a kick out of it.

Track N Go costs $25,000 according to their site. That's more expensive than traditional track systems like Mattrack. It's a neat design, but that price...I can't even imagine what it must be like to be a person who can afford such a thing.

My work has a set of them. They were planning on a set for all 20 of us field guys. When it costs 3-8 grand to have an access cleared for us, and we need that access plowed every couple weeks, and there are 20+ sites, the cost of the tracks are cheap.
The problem is they are huge, and heavy. It was a huge struggle for me to get them out of my truck and on, and even more to get them back into my truck. I'm only 5'11" and 150lbs, but still. Plus they take up every bit of room in the bed so getting material in was tough.
If we get permission to put a building at the lease entrances then next year we might just leave a set at all the sites.

Although I am still trying to get my boss to just put track on my jeep and let me pull it around on a trailer.

99 XJ, black, 4x4, NP231, 8.25 rear. Fully locked.
5.5" long arm lift, 35x12.5x15 Kumo KL71MT

Yeah, I can see them being great for fleet use in business/industrial applications. Personal use? I can't fathom.
