No other part of your car or truck should touch the ground, with the exception of your tires, which represent the connection between your vehicle and the road. The thought of a new set of tires may excite even the biggest farm tractor on earth. This thrill is not just restricted to a set of brand-new summer tires for your sports car or a set of 35-inch off-road mud tires. It turns out to be a remarkable sight to witness as Big Bud 16V-747, the largest agricultural tractor in the world, replaces eight gigantic tires.
The Big Bud 16V-747 is one of the most recognizable tractors in the entire world. This unique tractor was built in 1977 by Ron Harmon and the staff at the Northern Manufacturing Company in Montana for a cotton farm in California that intended to use it for deep ripping. The Big Bud 16V-747, with its 1,100 horsepower, was the best tractor for the job since deep ripping is labor-intensive and requires a big, heavy tractor to successfully cut through the earth.
Because of its distinctive design, it was quite difficult to find replacement parts for the Big Bud, especially its tires, which were initially made to order by the now-defunct United Tire Company of Cᴀɴᴀᴅᴀ. With the help of Williams Brothers, including new wheels, spacers, and their experience, Big Bud now possesses eight Goodyear LSW1400/30r46 tires, the largest agricultural tires in the world.
Today, Big Bud is considered as a cultural icon and a shining example of superb engineering for a very specific purpose. The Heartland Museum is home to this 1,100 horsepower tractor, where you may pay Big Bud a visit, write a message in the guest book, and behold this gigantic testament to the best tractor craftsmanship.
