Video: Big Bud tractor with a big plough

Presented by

Bigger might not be better but it’s always impressive, like the classic Big Bud 525/50 tractor seen pulling a 21-bottom plough in this video.


Made by Montana-based Big Bud between 1979 and 1982, the 525/50 has a Cummins 18.8-litre, six-cylinder diesel engine pumping out 525 horsepower (391.5kW). It weighs 24 tonnes and sports 12 tyres.

The video was shot at an Ohio Plow Day by Border View Farms, who used a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone. And they’re damn good at it — this is some of the best drone footage we’ve seen.
