Maybe. IIRC, Bob's somewhat notorious for having photos up which he never had or no longer has.
Better call to be sure.

Good idea?? I would expect hub bearings to disintegrate promptly, especially the inner needle bearings. The cantilevered load these things add is something not accounted for in the design of a stock Pinz. JMHO...

I have backed out of the idea of the mattracks equipped Pinz. Chains and some beadlocks for now.

As someone who owns one, if your Pinz on chains can't get you there, buy a vintage snowcat. Non-hydrostatic brake-steer machines are relatively simple and cheap machines. Spend what your Pinz is worth on a cat, and it's still cheaper than buying a set of Mattracks, and easier on your Pinz. Then you've got both.

Always wanted a snow cat. Got to ride shotgun with Charlie, the groomer that worked graveyard shift in the cascades for a long long time making trail for the valley weekend warriors that would come up and rip it on thier snowmobiles. I learned to keep hot dogs in a thermos of hot water and if you put a can of beans in the intake at the bottom of the long easy hill, as you crested the top, the beans were done.

Maybe a snow cat is next summers purchase ;)
