I think I've blogged the Rokon "moto-tractor" before, but I've recently become more interested in it. Yesterday's snow storm made me realize that I'd be much more excited about snow if I had a Rokon to play in it. Practical, too. The true all terrain vehicle (ATV). Two-wheel drive. 5" or 8" wide knobby tires. Climbs a 60 percent slope. Goes over 2-foot diameter fallen trees. Fords 2-foot deep streams. Conquers deep snow. Carries 1,000 pounds. Lots of accessories. What's not to like? Pictured below is the Scout, $5,575.00.

Anything that can do a four-wheel drive can do better

As the subject line says - in greater comfort and with a greater load.

Almost agree

I almost agree with you. The Rokon can fit places a 4-wheeler can't. It can also go across a steep incline without rolling. It also rips up the terrain less. It can be carried on the back of an SUV; no trailer necessary. And, I think I'll have more fun on it, but that's a matter of taste, and there's no accounting for taste.

I must admit that I've been tempted by a low-end 4-wheel ATV. Costs a little less, and, for my likely uses, will be just as good, if not quite as much fun.

I also wonder if the Rokon can be licensed for use on the road. 4-wheel ATVs cannot, at least not in NY state.

"Climbs a 60 degree

"Climbs a 60 degree slope."

Minor quibble: in the video he said it can climb a 60 percent slope. That would be about 31 degrees (45 degrees is a 100% slope).

Does look interesting though.
