There was one of those at the 175th Deere Anniversary show in Grimsby, Ontario. Didn't know that they existed until I seen it. I think it belonged to a fellow in New York.

Their were only 10 half track D's produced for experimental use
Two Cylinder Tractors Cost Less to Operate
That machine would be un-stoppable. A normal D is already a beast, but a half-track D has got to be a real monster.
I wonder how hard it would be to build one...
'50 Model M w/electronic ignition, 12v conversion, and a 3pt conversion plus a homemade snowplow, a Deere Model 51 trailer plow, a Woods RM59 finish mower, a Bark Buster splitter, and a few other toys.
'69 Sears Suburban 14 48" deck and 42" back blade, an estate rake, and a sweeper.
'07 F250 XL Powerstroke, crew cab, short box, 4x4.
'85 F150... I finally sold my very first truck after racking up over half-a-million miles on the original drivetrain.
A "conversion",, it would seem, would be very slow??
The sprocket driving the track is only 1/3 the size of the tire,,,
so it would only go 1/3 as fast.
The prototypes were probably re-geared?
I think Lindiman was attempting to put them on the JD tractors. There is some on the GP series as well. The BO turned out to be the easiest for them though to mount a kit on. Eventually Jd bought them out and kept the family working for them.
