Not really a vehicle...hydraulically operated bogies used to move a brick-built farmhouse.

Why not list the Fagioli?
I we can list golf carts, this one should be listed too, an impressive vehicle (is was on tv this evening in Holland)

I only omitted to list the Fagioli because it has no driver on board so is it really a vehicle or just a giant pallet-truck?

Anyway they are a fascinating piece of equipment and if there is good reason to add it I'm only too pleased to.

I agree that if the driver is not on the vehicle itself it does not count as "vehicle".
