Dean, the deeper the better when it comes to snow with this thing. It won't get stuck on level snow. Real deep powder is no problem with it all!! Just makes for a bigger snow dust ball behind you. I have never come close to getting stuck on level ground. It leaves about a 5 inch impression in even the softest snow. Going staight up or down a hill the same. If its too steep and its hard to find too steep with this thing it will just start spinning a tread. Just back down through you same tracks. NEVER trying turning aorund on an incline!! Like I said it will slide sideways on you. You've got of track area under you and that what keeps you on top of the snow. But they ack like a taboggan on a slide slope. I have made a winch adapter for the round tow mount up front. Its a plug in adapter. Its in there for pulling others out. I'll send pics. I am still gathering up all the info up I have on 206's. Here is a link to a very important source for you. Its to CHQ software a TM on CD company. This link is the the M973 (BV206) TM's on CD. Most if not all TM's for the US Army or US Marine 206's are on CD. I need to check but I think I have most of the US Army or US Marine manuals on CD for this. 24.95$, not to bad. M973 SERIES SMALL UNIT SUPPORT VEHICLE (SUSV) - CHQ Military Manuals, Army Manual, DOD Standards, Handbooks, Flight Manuals and Publications I hope this is still a good link. Stills comes up. There are a few US parts suppliers if I remember right and I will get all that to you. Here is another link. It is to Safety One who is a company who deals with BVs and snowcats. They have some BV parts. They are just 15 miles from my house. More to follow.

Hi all,

I am in quasi-desperate need of a wiring diagram for the ignition control system on the -206's.

These are Swedish versions, btw.

Plz reply direct to ke6iyc(at)mac(dot)com

Thanks in advance!

Hey guys, Does anyone have a current link or copy of a TM handy? I would love to get my hands on a complete TM, but I m in the immediate need for a U-joint part number or NSN. I am looking for prop shaft U-joints (there are 2 in each prop shaft, not sure if they are different or the same.)

Both units are powered. The engine, trans, and transfer case are in the first car and a driveshaft goes to a diff in the rear car. Steering is hydraulic cylinders between cars.

I have the full manual set in pdf on my hard drive with 17 years in the ak ng in maintenance I have a little experience with them. they aren't my first choice when it comes to snow cats. the foot print is a little heavy they are a good all terrain machine. if you have questions about it you can call me 907 434 0692.

Tatra that is a mighty nice looking one and from all my research the Benz diesel engine the the one to get from both a reliability and cost of ownership stand point. One of these day I keep telling myself I need one of these but some years we have tons of snow then the next year we have none then it just sits not getting used at all. Tatra where do you have to go for parts in the states? Its a beautiful vehicle and a big congrats on your purchase!!
