What is a Coot?

Twisted Coot What is the Coot? It's a simple question, but hey, its valid. Not everyone knows the name of the world's most incredible ATV! Simply put, the Coot is a full-time four-wheel drive, articulated ATV. Articu-what? The Coot has two seperate body sections connected by a joint in the middle. This joint allows the body sections to twist independently of each other (up to 45 degrees!) and keep all four wheels driving as much of the time as possible. The picture at the right shows the Coot's articulated hulls in action!

Coots were originally powered with 12 or 18 horsepower Tecumseh engines. This may not seem like a lot, but the Coot is geared for power. These babies will take a 75% grade with no problem! The Coot's drive system is powered through a centrifugal clutch and a 2 forward and one reverse speed transmission. This combination is simple and reliable, yet it allows for a wide range of power for varying conditions. The drive shaft delivers power to the axles through worm gears, ensuring efficient delivery.

Coots steer similar to a car.  The 124x models utilize two-wheel steering 

Not only are Coots powerful and easy to drive, they are frighteningly tough machines! Their laminated all-steel frame is welded to a tough 16 gauge steel skin that will resist nearly anything you throw at it (you can take that literally, too!).       Well heres your chance the coot is being relisted due to a nonpaying bidder and  better yet the weather is getting warmer perfect time to try the coot in the mud and waterCamoflauge Coot

Speaking of driving, you can drive a Coot darn near anywhere it will fit, including water! The Coot will happily propel itself along at about 2-3 mph in calm water using its tires as paddles. Of course, if you are lucky enough, your Coot has the optional propeller outdrive, allowing you to navigate moving water at about 5 This article is from coot world this coot im showing was restored by me it has been repowered with a briggs and stratton 14.50 inteck engine starts very good its a pull start so there is no genertor coils so the lights do not work a battery system could be made for it. it has one forward gear and reverse has a new drive belt hooked to a chain and a gearcase all works well the worm case gears in the front and back are very good front wheel bearings have been replaced has custom rollbars and front bumpers and fishing pole and gun holder on the front new seats and new camo paint was all primed with good epoxy primer then camoed front pan was good rear tub the floor was fiberglassed each tub has a drain hole in it if it was going to be on the water bolts would have to be placed in the drains the coot goes down the road good maybe 15 mph top speed there geared slow but strong i never personaly took on the water i just basically used for car shows etc. the tires are original but weathered and checked so would need to be replaced if used daily they hold air good now but can be replaced with 15 inch standard tires but it will need tires if used in the wild i wont have a reserve on it once the start price is met it will sell but if you want a unusual rig the coot is it and check out my you tube vid on it a walk around and start  1970 Coot - ATV - UTV- Amphibious Vehicle   also a clear south dakota title is on its way
