This video brings up "Oh, so many questions!"

#1 - How did they do that? Snorkel on the tractor???
#2 - Why would they do that? Surely there must be a better way.
#3 - Why would they do it at night? So you can see the tractor headlights in the water? No, must be a better reason.
#4 - Would you buy that tractor, used?

2 pipes out of the cowl, 1 intake, 1 exhaust. Saab (I think it was) once had a commercial of a boat operating with the engine submerged. If hand crank, no problem

Raoul Bianchetti, the founder and general manager of RB Power and Sailing, is a newer member of the CF.

Perhaps he would enjoy commenting on his “smile with us” video.

Yea you can tell buy the front tires locking up that they didn't plan on the weight of the cat dragging in the tractor. The only thing that saved it was the buoyancy of the tires. To be safe they should put more air in the tires next time! With this in mind I wonder how well this Cat is made? Just sayin...

It's a Massey Ferguson. You'd have a hard time finding a better tractor. I knew they were bulletproof before I saw this thread. I think I'll go mow the bottom of my pond now.

LMAO!!!!!!!!! But you will have to remove the tires and get one hell of a long snorkel! Don't forget hot chick and the champagne!
Cheers!

Best laugh I've had all day!
Good tractor and a cool headed operator. Next time they'll build a hitch extension I suspect.
