    Video of a tractor on large floatation tires driving across water. It is using rotation of the tires for propulsion and steering. In 2WD the rear wheels can be individually braked which is used for maneuvering.

    Imagine if you needed succour from maritime rescue, they'd never believe you :)

    Have you ever come across Amphibious Excavators ?

    I think New Holland doesn't understand how fish farms operate.
