Tinger Track: Russian lightweight amphibious tracked all-terrain vehicle

Tinger Track

Tinger Track is a lightweight amphibious tracked all-terrain vehicle, produced in Cherepovets by Mekhanika LLC (Russia). Positioned as a universal transport capable of replacing an ATV, snowmobile, swamp vehicle, tractor and boat.

Development of the all-terrain vehicle began in 2007, and the prototype was first presented to the public in the fall of 2008 at the Russian Hunting and Fishing exhibition under the name “Viking.” It was an amphibious tracked snow and swamp vehicle designed for movement over rough terrain on all types of soils and surfaces. It had a rear-engine layout and was equipped with an air-cooled Honda engine. In 2012, an updated model of the all-terrain vehicle was introduced, called Tinger Track. In 2018, production of the second generation of all-terrain vehicle began, called Tinger Track 2.

The Tinger all-terrain vehicle has 5 seats, 2+3 interior layout. The steering wheel is of a motorcycle type. All main controls are located on the steering wheel. The gear shift lever is located to the left of the driver.

The Tinger’s design is based on a space frame made of high-strength steel. The body of the all-terrain vehicle is made of low-density polyethylene using vacuum molding. This material is impact-resistant and can withstand temperature changes ranging from − 40°C to + 50°C.

The Tinger Track has a rear-engine layout. The all-terrain vehicle uses a 3-cylinder Chery SQR gasoline engine with a displacement of 812 cm³, developing a power of 57 hp. The engine cooling system consists of 2 radiators located on the sides of the all-terrain vehicle. The fuel tank, for better weight distribution of the car, is located at the front. The tank volume is 110 l.

The all-terrain vehicle has a rather unusual transmission – a two-speed gearbox paired with a CVT. Power transmission is carried out using double-row chains.

The all-terrain vehicle’s tracks are made of durable rubber with reinforcement and are equipped with rigid lugs 25 mm high. Thanks to their fairly large width – 500 mm, the pressure of the all-terrain vehicle on the ground is only 0.045 kg/cm². The roller suspension is independent spring. The drive sprocket is located at the rear. Track tension is achieved by adjusting the compression of the front road wheel spring.

The all-terrain vehicle can move on water due to the rotation of the tracks, and the speed is 5 km/h. It is possible to install an outboard boat motor.
