Hiaces & Delicas With Caterpillar Tracks

Posted by Stephen On Friday, March 11th, 2011

There seems to be a few of these minivans with caterpillar tracks fitted in place of wheels servicing Japanese ski resorts. The 4WD mechanism drives the tracks directly providing (I assume) superlative snow driving capabilities. It seems that these are licensed to drive on the road, but I wonder how they get them through the Shaken? (They must have to remove the tracks and put the wheels back on, I guess).
