Independent firm Spyker Workshop unveiled the CyberKAT, a remote-controlled electric snowcat that looks like a miniature Cybertruck on tracks, just in time for the arrival of winter and the first snowflakes in several states. The model has triangular-shaped surfaces and LED lighting units and is built on an aluminum sheet metal frame.
We discover four 12V SLA batteries secured with Velcro, 775 size brushless electric motors, a special CNC aluminum gearbox with high-speed or high-torque options, and PCB circuit boards for the lights under the effortlessly detachable top lid cover.
While this is the standard setup, the model is also compatible with alternative types of batteries and e-motors, depending on the preferences of the buyer. It also comes with a trailer hitch built for the CyBlower, a future snow blower presently in development by the same firm. The CyberKAT's utility will be enhanced with the CyBlower, which will allow it to clean up while having a great time.
Ryan Butler, the CyberKAT's developer, has already created three prototypes using 3D-printed test components and will shortly begin mass production using Acetal Delrin injection molding. He's likewise working on the instructions for the CyberKAT, which will need assembling.
In January or February 2022, the CyberKAT will be delivered to its owners. Pre-orders for the model are already open, with costs ranging from $1,299 to $1,499 depending on the setup.
