Pretty impressive engineering. If it weren't for the chain drive, that articulation would work well in Finland. The horse power needed to climb the mountains would destroy any chain drive system.

I don't care for the music, but they do have some pretty good footage on this video....

Cool link, thanks Adrian. I sent the video to my bro' in law who is a 4x4 fanatic as well. Turns out the owner of that posts on the 4x4 forum he belongs to so he was already aware of it. Crazy engineering on that!

Very cool machine. Incredible articulation. My question is, when it gets stuck, and believe me, anything can get stuck, whop goes to get it?

Cool indeed but, wouldn't it be a lot faster to just walk up the ravine?
