Our first and largest custom ordered build

This is our half track, it was our largest and first customer funded project. 
It took about 2 years to build and about $30,000 total.  The start of Tankco.


Here are my favorite videos of it in action.  Filmed by the customer.

Priceless artwork in my opinion!!!
