New Hydra Quad Tractor
Your readers may be interested in this new "Hydra-Quad"tractor that I built. This 4-WD, 4-wheel-steer tractor is powered by a 24 hp rear-mounted gas engine and steered with a pedal foot control. Its design permits an incredibly tight inside turning circle of only 68 in. and it's equipped with 12 by 12 by 26 flotation tires which help make it an all terrain utility tractor. It has a solid front axle and an oscillating rear axle with 4 in. deflection. The tractor is much easier to get in and out of than a skid steer loader. The long wheel-base and low, wide profile allow it to climb hills with comparative safety. Available attachments include a 60-in. bucket, pallet forks and a dirt or snow blade. Others are on the drawing board. I'm looking for a manufacturer. (Rudolph Wittke, 1659 Glenny Ave., Waterloo, Iowa 50702 ph 319 233-7464).
