MIG/MAG welding the bottom half of the tracked amphibious vehicle's hull sheet metal and hopefully making it watertight in the process. The drainage bolts are not welded in yet and the seals are also not in the rear wheel hubs yet. But other than that - this hull should already float like a boat. I will cut an additional hole in the rear for a specific purpose, and plug it up too, but all of that in the future episodes. This hull will have a 20 cm upper edge on it that will reach the end of the rectangular pipes that are hanging over the edge of the existing tub (just like on the picture in the beginning of the video). These will create mudguards for the wheels / tracks, and more buoyancy too. I will add actual mud flaps in the rear since the wheels are the most out reaching points of the vehicle. And that is on purpose - when I got the chance to drive the Canadian ARGO 8x8 extreme terrain vehicle I noticed I got stuck on the protruding nose all the time when trying to leave a small stream over a steep bank. The first to reach the ground was always the nose. So while designing my own tracked amphibious vehicle I decided to make the wheels/tracks the most protruding features on this handmade DIY offroad all terrain / extreme terrain amphibious vehicle so I would never get stuck again. But all of that will be put on test when my own tracked amphibious vehicle is finally ready to be tested. My vehicle, as the ARGO didn't, has no suspension. Why? It will run very slowly, it's a crawler. I can't say the ride will be very pleasant, but deflating the tires a bit in the middle (the idler wheels) will help to soften the ride a little. Also having less moving parts outside in the mud and water will lower the maintenance cost on this vehicle. Why this enormous ugly looking crash bar / roll bar? So I don't get trapped / squashed by the capsized vehicle. Oh, why is it so TALL? I'm a tall guy, a taller crash bar makes it easier to navigate the inside of the vehicle under the crash bar when on water, under the roof. And the removable roof will be supported by the crash bar too. Why the roof? For protection against the elements during Fall and Winter to make using the vehicle more pleasant. When snowplowing with ATV I've always missed weather protection. So this problem should be solved after this build is finished. Thank you for watching and stay tuned for future episodes!

@x111 There are a lot of tracked units that do not have suspension, Argos for example do not! This will be mostly tire suspension due to air pressure. Suspension adds a lot more to the build...
x111 Aasta tagasi
but why do you have zero suspension !!

Working at Electric Boat all the welds on the pressure hull were X-Rayed during 3rd shift. If they found bubbles in any welds the welds were ripped out and done over. I would hear the welders brag about how many pounds of welding rods they went through on their shift.

Looks good man, word of advice though, when you're welding, especially on the hull, try to get seams in one shot if possible. The more starts and stops you have, the more prone you are to leaking and the welds possibly failing. No judgment man just some helpful advice from a career welder!

After following your videos on this build I would dare say any industry wanting to build or who currently build amphibious vehicles needs to SERIOUSLY EXAMINE YOUR WORK. Some may say you are overbuilding this machine. I say you are building it to the HIGHEST LEVEL of engineering principles and workmanship. It is an absolute DELIGHT to watch you work. Thank you!

With that many seams, eccentric angles and joints you are going to have to apply some sort of waterproofing material to the outside of that hull (something sprayed perhaps) otherwise you will have pinhole leaks that will be a nightmare to sort out. Looking good however can't wait to see it in use. :D

The thing I drove had a drain valve between my feet that sat flush with the underneath, so any water that came in could be emptied out as soon as you hit dry land without even having to stop. It was held it place by an over centre catch.

I see where you installed grease fitting, it seems difficult to access. Why not install a small tube and weld it to the bearing housing you want to grease and install the grease fitting at the other end, and you install it at a place where it is easier to access.

Its been a great build so far and I have enjoyed watching it. But why is the body so much narrower than the track? My first thought was how you could gain much buoyancy by making the sponsons on each side connect across all four wheels, and then I thought how the whole body could be pushed out even easier.
