"We also use them as ambulances and for advance scouting work," says Larry Watt, the business development manager for the Alaska division of Geokinetics, headquartered in Houston.
BUILT FOR SPEED The company used to use two-track vehicles that could travel up to 5 or 6 mph. But the Sno-Cats can travel up to 25 mph, although Watt says they typically don't exceed 10 to 12 mph, both for safety reasons and to extend their field life. "It's not flat snow out there," he notes. As such, speed is important because it maximizes productivity and protects the company's considerable investment, Watt says. Powered by Cummins diesel engines that run virtually nonstop because of the subzero temperatures, the Sno-Cats prove their mettle every day. Leaving the machines running 24 hours a day in temperatures reaching -50 degrees F, the vehicles burn 20 to 40 gallons of fuel per day and have 50-gallon fuel tanks, according to Watt. "The Sno-Cats are 50 percent faster than other tracked vehicles we've used," he says. "You steer by articulation, rather than braking one track to turn, like you do with a two-track vehicle, which can break up the tundra," Watt says. Some Sno-Cats even carry small fuel tanks for transporting fuel to remote sites, Watt says. The vehicles operate just like a car or pickup truck, so in emergencies, just about anyone can drive them without training. Each track is independently sprung and pivoted at the drive axle, which minimizes cab shock on rough terrain. Furthermore, the rubber tracks render the Sno-Cats drivable on everything from dry pavement and mud to dirt roads and deep, powdery snow. "They can go where a lot of vehicles can't, like on ice," Watt says.
