World's Smallest Pickup
FARM SHOW covers all major shows in the United States, Canada and foreign countries to keep you posted on latest new products. Featured here are "best of the show" ideas which caught my eye in covering three of Australia's biggest and best farm shows Ag Quip at Gunnedah, NSW; Farmfest at Toowombah, Qld.; and the Machinery Field Days at Henty, NSW.
Highlights included a test drive of the world's smallest pickup the "Mighty Boy" from Suzuki. "It's selling like hotcakes. We can't get them fast enough," reported Geoff Garnder, Suzuki's area sales manager. Priced about $4,000, the sporty fun machine features a 543cc, 4 stroke, 3 cyl. watercooled engine, and manual or automatic transmission. It's 10 ft. long, 4 ft. wide and 4? ft. high. The 450-pound capacity cargo bed is wider (4 ft.) than it is long (26 in.). Suzuki is already marketing its mini jeep, the Samari, in the U.S. and may import the Mighty Boy once supply catches up with booming demand, an official told FARM SHOW. It's a winner easy to drive, easy to park, cheap to run and a real eye catcher.
