The Sherp... Badass ATV

Recommended Posts

This reminds me of my old ATTEX 6 wheeler I had. Only bigger and 4 wheels.

Unless they have some new technology……once water-sand-mud gets in the wheel/ axel bearings, it doesn't take long for them to rust and fail.

I used to run mine through lakes and swamps and the bearings would last one season before I would have to change them out.

anything that is designed to roll on land is really not meant for the water.

Ugly thing

I wonder if its buoyancy is dependent on the tires. If that's the case, I'd be scared shitless to drive it over broken ice like that. Otherwise, looks pretty badass.

Like a boat trailer, the wheel bearings need pressure greasers.

I had those and water/mud/sand would still work it's way in. 

The difference between this and a boat trailer is, a trailer your just backing in and out of the water

where as something like this your plowing through the water and forcing stuff in. 

These land/water vehicles are a ton of fun but they take tons of maintenance to keep them going.

 

In my opinion a hovercraft is a much better design for all terrain land/water applications.

They even make flying hovercrafts now so you have land, sea and air all covered in one machine. http://www.hovercraft.com/content/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=533

And you don't need a pilots license to kill yourself in one of these…LOL
