BOONE, Iowa – The 2010 Farm Progress Show held Aug 31 – Sept 2, will be home to the Guinness Book of World Records “largest farm tractor in the world”, Big Bud 747. Weighing in at 100,000 pounds, Big Bud is sure to be the “Big” attraction at this year’s show.
The Big Bud 747 tractor was built in Havre, Montana by Ron Harmon and the crew of the Northern Manufacturing Company. Measuring 27 feet long, 20 feet wide, and 14 feet tall, Big Bud 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 horsepower – the Big Bud looks like it did when it rolled out of the Northern Manufacturing Company building back in 1977.
Crop Production Services (CPS), Dyna-Gro Seed and Loveland Products Inc. will be featuring Big Bud to reinforce their “Think Big” theme for 2010.
Crop Production Services invites attendees to stop by their booth located in lots 902, 904, 1001 and 1003 to learn more about what their seed can do to boost performance. CPS will also be hosting informational presentations throughout each day of the show covering topics such as new products, innovations in farming practices, and how CPS, Dyna-Gro and Loveland can help each farmer “Think Big”.
