There was something similar to that I saw out here. They were doing high voltage line replacement on some big erector set looking power towers. Its in a river bottom so its soupy. They had something like that with a BIG cherry picker on it. Like a sweet swamping line truck!

yUP a marsh buggy. A fairly common sight in Louisiana and south east Texas.

And some are even bigger than that one. Those are transported in sections and assembled on site

Wish this guy had done that too.
What do they use them for? Pulling logs?

They use them for all kinds of stuff. Some have cranes or excavators on them. Others like that one are for hauling supplies and cargo. That one has a flat deck so I figure its for cargo altho they could haul anything that it can carry. Could be for transporting a work crew even. They are dezigned for travel over very soft terrain and crossing rivers etc. They float. Seen one crossing a lake once. They only move about 10 mph and believe it or not they useually have no bigger that 6-71 detroit engine driveing them.
