Snowcats are becoming more common for private owners (as opposed to professional groomers, SAR teams, law enforcement, petroleum companies drilling in the arctic...).

Screw-drives never caught on. Almost all are now tracked with a couple specialty ones being on over-sized tires.

Here's a place that has a lot of snowcats. Many are on your side of the pond so if you're serious, you should be able to find one.

they'd be bad ass under my samurai, if it wouldn't just roll over like a dog doing tricks. the technology seems like it would be pretty inefficient on anything un-slippery.

Go to the forum I referenced above...

Mattracks or similar can turn a lot of vehicles into tracked vehicles.

I don't think that the "Tread Lightly" folks would approve, but it does look cool. Might be a bit slow for a BOV.

I was just trying to mention a site that has a huge membership of people that have and discuss snow vehicles.

There as a attempt at driving from Russia to North America with screw driven amphibious vehicles some years ago, as a proof of concept, I believe... they didn't make it.
about the only terrain I think they might be good in is snow and perhaps some types of swamps. on the highway or rocks they probably wouldn't get far... and would require hearing protection.

I'll take tires!...

Enjoy!
