Case IH Stieger and Quadtrac Tractor

I was watching a show about restoring an old International Harvester Scout on tv and I figured I'd look up what else they make. Turns out they make some pretty badass equipment. One example is the Steiger + Quadtrac tractor that features four independent tracks instead of tires. Tracks offer increased traction and flotation over soil, even though they look like they would do far more damage than tires. Not everything we feature here is as purpose-built as this tractor, but I think it is just as beautiful as all the other things we feature.
