  • Same design as Tractor, Microtractor, except for thicker drive shafts and larger hydraulic motors
  • Use 15,000 in lb wheel motors - and about 20" track heights - about 1500 lb drive per wheel
  • 2.5 inch or 3 inch wheel shafts
  • Probably cannot use rubber wheels - need to go to full metal drive wheels
  • 100 hp at least, 200 hp desirable
  • Required larger power cube, most likely steam-engine based
  • Part of pelletized biomass power infrastructure
  • Contributes terraforming to permaculture design
  • May be a good candidate for Nickel-Iron Battery
