Novel form of propulsion
« on: November 02, 2017, 06:57:15 AM »

I saw this digger on a barge today, dragging itself around the lake. Probably not a new way of getting around, but it is the first time I have seen it (see pic).

It's very popular in the far east Countries.  In fact Hyundai, JCB, CAT and Komatsu are starting their own rowing teams.
