Polar transportation equipment : one-ton power wagon with high-flotation tires by W. H Beard ( Book )
3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two modified Model S6W300 1-ton power wagons equipped with low-pressure 17.00 x 16 highflotation tires were used on all types of roads and trails on adjoining areas of snow, ice, and frozen ground at McMurdo, Antarctica, during the summer seasons of FY-64 and FY-56. One was used as a camp service vehicle to haul supplies and personnel between McMurdo Station on Ross Island and the NCEL camp on the Ross Ice Shelf, a distance of about 6 miles. The other was used to support snow-compaction studies on the Ross Ice Shelf and at Williams Field. Both power wagons performed well with a minimum of repair and maintenance, and no special skills were required for their operation and upkeep. They could be driven over all types of roads and trails, including 1-day-old equipment-packed trails on deep snow and icy roads with grades up to 20%. During Deep Freeze 65 the S6W300 power wagon equipped with 17.00 x 16 tires was adopted by the U.S. Naval Support Forces, Antarctica, as an interim standard light-duty vehicle for McMurdo Station.

Polar Transportation Equipment--Four-Wheel-Drive Vehicle with High-Flotation Tires ( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A four-wheel-drive vehicle with a V-8 engine, automatic transmission, 11:00 x 15 bar-tread, high-flotation tires, and a panel delivery body was tested over improved roads on abutting areas of snow, ice and frozen ground at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, for a 2-year period between Deep Freeze 67 and 69. It was used to haul light cargo and passengers both summer and winter in all kinds of weather, including temperatures to -50F. It was driven with ease by numerous drivers with varying degrees of winter driving experience on both smooth and rough roads, through snowdrifts up to 2 feet deep, and up 20% grades covered with patches of ice. Only minor maintenance and repairs were required in 15,000 miles of operation. During Deep Freeze 68, a four-wheel-drive vehicle similar to the test vehicle except for a station wagon body was adopted by the Naval Support Forces, Antarctica, as a command vehicle for McMurdo Station. The vehicle with either body configuration is recommended for inclusion in the equipment allowance list for a polar coastal station where fast comfortable transportation is essential for effective operation.
