Muscateer was built by Muscat Corp. in Forest Lake, Minnesota. This vehicle was one of the few which utilized the “Quad/Drive” Hagen transmission. Similar to a hydrostatic drivetrain, the Hagen can change directions and counter-rotate without shifting. A great transmission in theory, but unpredictable driving characteristics made it less than ideal.
