About this Episode

This is the original story of the biggest tractor ever built, the Big Bud 16V-747. This video is also the companion DVD to the book written and published by John Harvey. Meet the owners, Robert and Randy Williams, watch this monster in action in Montana wheat fields and listen to builder Ron Harmon describe the details of this incredible machine. You’ll see, hear and feel the power of the 16-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 900 horsepower pulling an 80-foot chisel plow through 60 acres in one hour.
