Kress are well known for their slag pot carriers, hauls trucks etc but I just came across this picture posted by jeannot on http://photostp.free.fr. I looked on the Kress website but didn't get too far with this. It appears to be an Arctic personnel carrier based off the CAT 740. Does anyone have any further information on this?

Its CAT"s version of an SUV! Have to get me one of those. The next Hummer.
Anyway, a very cool looking machine but that compartment is a little small for a personal carrier especially on a 740. I would think a "bus" would be a lot larger and on something a little smaller like a 725? Maybe something to carry explosives?

Judgeing by the tires it looks like it is supposed to run on some loose material, like snow for instance. Im with Rowan on this one.

Nice find, Rowan. Would love to see some more info on this as well, nothing showing up in Google.

Bump.

The truck is used to haul cargo from flights landing on the ice shelf into McMurdo Station.





Lots of other antarctic machine pictures here.
