2 A Soviet Screw-Propelled Vehicle Going to Series, Again

A Soviet Screw-Propelled Vehicle Going to Series, Again

Posted on August 14, 2017 by tim


One Russian factory started again producing those unique all-terrain screw-propelled vehicles. It was initially built in USSR and could move virtually anywhere – didn’t need roads at all – take a look at the video:


Here is an old Soviet video showing them in action.

 

And this is new vehicle being produced in Russia now. It goes as two and four door versions, also includes a pump inside the cabin to pump off the excess water when you move thru the river or like.

Here is a video of the newly built car:

It has CUMMINS ISF3.8 engine with 159 horse power. The price is not clear yet.

    Hi, some comment on this:
    Originally, this design was implemented by someone in the sixties in the flemish part of The Netherlands. He build such a wormdriven car/boat with 2 independent daf66 motors with variomatic transmission. He used it to work in the famous tyde-flooded part named “Land van Saeftinghe”.
    Because the two worms were driven independent and a variomatic transmission can run forward/backward @100% power, it could move forward/backward but also drive sideways. If it still exists, I do not know..

    I would add a middle pontoon(or flat bottom boat) slightly higher up than the outer screws and make the carriage more like a dune buggy or sand rail sitting at a lower profile. For that matter, you could just make a screw drive that would attach to anything from cars,boats (especially a party barge), etc. Heck, add some skis for high speed water driving.
    It is neat just the way it is.
