New Big Buds
« on: January 18, 2023, 11:01:58 AM »
Anyone who has ever watched any tractor video's on the youtube has probably seen a Big Bud. These hand built high HP tractors stopped production in 1991. Now it looks like they are making a come back, if what is talked about in this article is true (right to repair, cat parts, power, weight, etc) I bet they will have a winner on their hands, especially with heavy dirt movers in the construction industry.

They will have to be electric in califuckier
Is the need enough? Or does the want suffice?

it will still have to meet the EPA emissions standards and from what I gather the emissions is where a majority of Cats problems are.

Wonder what the price tag will look like.  :-\

They should consult with VW?

I might know where a few C18's that have been stripped of its government requirements and retuned are working. All I can say wow  :97:. Its quite the feeling to lean into power pedal and feel the drive tires slipping.
