BIG SANDY, MT: BigBud 747, a custom built agricultural Tractor is 28˝ feet long, 14 feet high, 21 feet wide and has a wheel base of 16 ˝ feet; it weighs in at 45 tons with a full diesel and hydraulic oil tank setting the new world record for the Largest Farm Tractor.
BigBud 747, the world's Largest Farm Tractor was built in Havre, Montana USA in 1977 by Ron Harmon of the Northern Manufacturing Company, for a cost of $300,000.
The Largest Farm Tractor in the world is a 16 cylinder behemoth powered by a 24.1 litre Detroit V16 92Turbo engine delivering 900hp; it has 6 forward and 1 reverse gear driving all eight foot tall wheels
With hydraulic powered steering and air brakes, similar to those on a semi, and a 1000 gallon diesel tank with a 150 gallon hydraulic reservoir tank, BigBud is big enough and has the endurance for any job.
The world's Largest Farm Tractor can work more than one acre per minute, at speeds up to 8 mph. Except its new paint job, chrome stacks, and a whopping 900 plus horsepower - the Big Bud looks like it did when it rolled out of the Northern Manufacturing Company building back in 1977.
