I'll bite.

Seems only logical as a next step in some respects; however I suspect it will only be good for certain conditions/slopes. Given the extra gear on the sides, I suspect initial versions would only be capable of going uphill on flatter up to intermediate terrain. I also suspect that you'd want to drag more 'capable' (deeper digging, etc...) tiller gear around the mountain in areas such as the mid-atlantic or north east after thaw events, etc.. limiting it's projected savings in 'hard snow' areas.

My apologizes for the double post. We waited until the website launched before doing the post. Can you delete this thread?

Can't see a reason to delete it, really.
