Big Bud Ready for Show
Wed, 25 Aug 2010 17:25:04 CDT
The world’s largest farm tractor is “Big Bud”. The Big Bud 747 tractor was built in Havre, Montana by Ron Harmon and the crew of the Northern Manufacturing Company. It can work more than one acre per minute, at speeds up to 8 mph. Except for its new paint job, chrome stacks, and a whopping 900 plus horse power plant – the Big Bud looks like it did when it rolled out of the Northern Manufacturing Company building back in 1977.
So, what does it look like, you ask? “Big Bud” measures 27 feet long, 20 feet wide and 14 feet tall, and weighs in at 100-thousand pounds. The tractor will be featured by Crop Production service, Dyna-Gro seed and Loveland Products at the 2010 Farm Progress Show, August 31 through September 2, in Boone, Iowa.
