Hydraulic 4 WD

I saw this on a swamp loggers show. It looked like the front wheels turned slower than the rear wheels and caused a hop on the show.
This video on youtube doesn't show a hop but they're not on a dry gravel hill.
Interesting system although it doesn't have a low gear.

That's neat. I saw a all hydraulic rock crawler at roush creek once. It was the wildest crawler I ever saw. He could direct power to each wheel separate if needed. He had arms made on the cage that could flip the crawler over if he flopped it.

That would be handy, but simply making a dual to triple driver setup depending if they are tag axles or not would make a huge difference, along with diff locks. Most semi's on the road are dual drivers, so I was a little surprised to see that rig only had one...
