Bolt-On Bog Cogs Float Over Mud"It's almost like putting tracks on," say manufacturers of new "Bog Cogs", bolt-on drums that attach to tractors, combines, trucks, cars, recreational vehicles and any other wheeled equipment that has to work in muddy conditions.
Karl Blair of Wessex Plc., manufacturer, says they can even be used on a tractor working in a bunker silo.
Made out of superhard plastic and alloy steel, the serrated drums simply bolt in place over the wheel. A special set of lug nuts mount permanently on the wheels. Takes just 5 min. to mount a set of four Bog Cogs. On a hard surface, they clear the ground so you can leave them in place when you get through the soft terrain.
"They're easy to use, virtually indestructible and they boost traction because the teeth dig in," says Blair.
Bog Cogs nest together for compact storage on the vehicle. They sell for about $500 a set. The company is looking for a U.S. distributor.
