Commercial Tructor Is A Truck, Tractor and ATV
"It's more than a tractor and more than a truck," says Robert Gibbons about the "Tructor" his company introduced at the re-cent National Farm Machinery Show at Louisville, Ky.
The Tructor has a three-passenger bench seat with operator controls in the center and a hydraulic dump box on back with hauling capacity of 1 cu. yd.
The 3,600-lb. Tructor outweighs most other utility tractors in its class and is rated for 2,200 lbs. of drawbar pull.
It's powered by either a 40 hp 4-cyl. water-cooled diesel (Model D-400) or a 25 hp 2-cyl. air-cooled diesel (D-250). They're coupled with a 4-speed synchromesh transmission with both high and low range to permit speeds from a crawl up to 25 mph.
It features Cat. #1 3-pt. hitch, 540 rpm pto rated at 85% efficiency, and ROPS bar. Comes fitted with standard 7.0 by 15-in. front tires. Rear 11.2 by 24-in. tires are available in your choice of lugged, turf, or flotation tires.
Other options are stake sides for the truck box which increase its capacity to 3 cu. yds. and windshield and soft-side cab enclosure. A front-end loader with 4-ft. bucket will be avail-able for the D-400 in June.
Tructors start at $11,000.
