thinking of maybe setting up a driving school for lessons/rides in her to help with the up keep etc, it will live on a 150 acre farm but its all grassland for cows, so wont be allowed to chew up the land, but maybe drive around the edges of the fields etc.

I would imagine those long narrow tracks would make a reasonable mess of grass!

 

My scorpion wasn't too bad on long grass but the tighter the turn the more damage... the back lawn took a month to recover when I took it for a spin in the back garden! :embarrassed:

 

Concrete and tarmac will be out for you with all metal tracks of course...

 

Can you run it on contaminated diesel?

Tracks aren't too bad on grass - very low ground pressure figures for the vehicle... Provided you don't do a "spin on the spot" 180 or - worse - 360. Then you get some nice grooves! :-D

 

If it can get onto the road - same thing applies as to ground pressure, but the lower speed limit of, I think, 5 mph as opposed to 20 mph on pads applies.

 

Contam is a divided story - I have had people who served on them tell me both that it can and that it can't so for safety I keep mine on straight diesel. Good news there is mine is cleared for using Red diesel by HMRC (got it in writing!! :cool2:) so - provided Nick's stays off the road the same ruling will apply.

driving on the road is a pain, I take my 432 out from time to time and they are a challenge. A very noisy one at that...the ot 90 is a bit wider on the tracks which is more tricky, but you can get rubber pads and if you get it registered you can run at 20 mph..easy enough, the 432 runs at max 30 mph but your better keeping to about 22-25 mph in a 432...

 

if the ot 90 is anywhere near the same as the mtlb they are mega fast but the gear change is a pain...ours is having gearbox issues so we will change that out in the coming months...

 

I took mine for a 40 mile drive it took 2 hours I did stop at home for a bit of a pose, but at the end of the drive I was knackered, exhilerated but knackered..the concentration the effort the noise and the stupid car drivers all make for a very busy journey
