Steyer Hunting Vehicle
Hey Guys,check out our new hunting vehicle.....we were looking at a Polaris Ranger but changed our minds after seeing this Vehicle....a Steyer Puch Haflinger.....it was used by the Austrian army...
We have started with the modifications,we have built a hunting frame for it,with a bench seat and jerrycan holder,we are going to foam fill the wheels for those unforgiving "sekelbos" thorns.
These Puch's have amazing off road abilities....and would make animal recovery in harsh terain a bit easier....with a width of 1.3m and total length
0f only 2.9m it can go into allot of places where other 4x4's cant....it has 4 wheel drive with front and rear diff lock, and a offcamber approach of 45 degrees as well as a climbing abilities of 45 degrees......
its going in for a spray job this week,will post more pics of the project....as it goes on....
Thanx For the great site....

Donovan, thanks for the pics I've never seen one before. It certainly looks like a handy little multi-task vehicle that will get the job done!There is only one degree of dead . . . there are many degrees of wounded

Thanx Tom.....it is rated to carry 500kg,a eland may be too big,got a trailer with a winch and conveyor belt on(the trophy has less risk of getting damaged that way)that is used for kudu and bigger.....but for impala and such,no problem.....will post pics when it is completed....

That vehicle is awesome. It would do well here chasing hogs in South Florida. I was looking at these Volvo Jeeps as a platform, but the initial cost is too high. They seem to all over the net for sale though.
