FAIRBANKS, Alaska — Fort Wainwright is selling some equipment, including a large truck on two wide tracks that isn't exactly street legal.
The Nodwell 110 Tracked Carrier has a large cabin with two seats and extra space behind. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (http://bit.ly/1bmf18i ) the vehicle's bed also has a 300-pound capacity lift bucket.
An auction service says the all-terrain vehicle can transport equipment and other heavy loads where most other vehicles can't and can drive off-road through sand, mud, muskeg and snow.
The carrier is being auctioned off by Govliquidation.com, a government-contracted company authorized to sell surplus and scrap materials. The site, separately, is also auctioning a row crop tractor from Wainwright.
The lots opened for bidding at $25 Monday and are set to close Thursday.
