BIG BUD Tractor Restoration - 2019 Time-Lapse

Welker Farms

645 миӊ. көрүүлөр55

    After months we've finally finished working on this BIG BUD! Restorations are never easy but thankfully this one didn't need a lot of mechanical work so it wasn't as extensive as previous builds we have done. Paint, interior, wiring, hydraulics, lights, and decals make such a difference! Large farm tractors like these spend tens of thousands of working hours and need rebuilt from time to time. Our plan for this beast is to use it in spring planting along side our BIG BUD KTA 525.
    Year Built: 1979
    Model: 525/50 (upgraded to a 600/50)
    Engine: Cummins KTA 18.8L 6-cyl diesel
    Weight: 52,000 lbs
    Fuel: 550 gal
    Transmission: Twin Disc 9 speed
    Tires: 30.5-32
    Oddens Autos

      As much as y'all farm, them Big Buds still are too small!!

    2. MadMax Farms

      At Least The drawbar didn’t get leg arms arm on this one

    3. Marty Goodson

      Gave John Deere 844 a make over

    4. Mark Arnott

      👀 👓 great restoration video 👍 BIG BUD a thing of beauty

    5. parkjammer

      A machine built entirely with the products of science... with references to mythology mixed in... what is it with myth-believers? When Joe Diety pops in and hands over the keys to a new tool, THEN include it.

    6. Dwayne Koblitz

      I also was thinking that is was WAY heavier than just 52,000 lbs?? Am I remembering wrong?

      1. Dwayne Koblitz

        Welker Farms okay. Was thinking about the big one. Thanks for the reply. Have a great day.

      2. Welker Farms

        The largest big bud is much heavier but these models are in the 50k range.

    7. Dwayne Koblitz

      I knew that this video existed but always forgotten to look it up. Today it just popped up. Fantastic job rebuilding the world’s largest tractor! It looks amazing!

    8. Pete Schiavoni

      Fantastic restoration. It’s great that some paint and upgrades keep older stuff going for years to come.

    9. Vyntex

      1. Welker Farms

        Land rich cash poor, that is farming

    22. Olaf Schmidt

      I know that you're keeping a really sharp eye on the Quad Tracs, but I really hope that the Big Buds will last another lifetime, or two... 😊👍🏻

    23. Spike Lynch

      how long did it take

    24. Tony Ackerman

      Do you men have a DVD collection of all of your videos? I know my Dad would greatly enjoy it. He's originally from Glentana / Peerless and spent his entirely farming/ranching life just east of Belgrade, so he would have a great appreciation of the work you do.

    25. Tony Ackerman

      Pretty damn cool that you men keep these GREAT tractors up to snuff and running! EXCELLENT work!

    26. Skippy_lardazz

      This will never get old

    29. lee sanders

    36. John Cook

      That's a fantastic job you have done to that machine. You should be proud of the result. Good video.

    37. Fred Schlueter

      That looks mint

    38. Toby and James Goldsmith

      As far as I know big bud don’t make tractors anymore, if you were to replace a tractor, what would you replace it with??

      1. Ben Aklestad

        Big bud died in the 80s

    39. Cj Hansen

      It’s a great thing that you guys brought this tractor back to life, I know how hard the work is to such a project. To see such a machine back out in the field is amazing, it’s just like putting an old pickup back on the road. You guys did an amazing job and thanks for all you do as far as bringing food to our tables

    40. Dadson anand

      Wow!! Thank you sir! Proclaiming the word of God, encouraging the people!

    41. Rougaroux

      There are so many things that you all do out on your farm that I’d love to experience. The only tractors that I’ve ran are smaller units such as the old 6060 Allis-Chalmers.

    42. David Tobías

      Un trabajo impresionante de una gran máquina. Saludos!!

    43. Pankaj singh Singh

      I am from India

    44. Chris Clarke

      We call that a 5 gallon overhaul. No engine work, powertrain not repaired, no electrical repairs or painted it.

    45. wnclooney

      I admire people who nowadays instead of throwing away something that is old and buying new, try to fix something that may still be useful. Greetings from Poland.

    46. Paulo Rodrigues

      God bless you! Good job

    47. Lakeside Farms

      basically every thing you did to the bud

    64. Guy Boisvert

      Impressive! Maybe you've already told it but i see a 525/50 entering and after the restoration, it's a 600/50 !! Did you tweak the engine to make it a 600? And what is the meaning of the "/50" ? Thanks and keep up the awesome work!

    66. Paul Gribben

      Those Big Buds are gigantic, I suppose everything has to scale up in proportion with the acreage. Beautiful restoration, great video!

    67. Wesley Smal

    71. Rob Hardwick

    72. Robert Anthony

      What all do yall plant throughout the year? I live in West Tennessee. And work at Tosh Farms. I recently restarted working on the Farm. I was a Diesel mechanic for 4 years for the company. But now I'm a farm mechanic. The farm i work for plants winter wheat, canola, soybeans, corn. And raise Hogs. I know im probably forgetting something. But we mostly run CASE IH. Have a few John Deere Tractors.

    83. W Sawatzky

      Go get the 747 it needs your loving touch

    84. Ray Anderson

      Amazing. I'm still a farm kid at heart and your videos just make me drool. 2 things: 1) There has been a 525/50 Big Bud for sale in Dawson Mn for about a year. I last saw it fall of 2019. It's never been a field tractor, it was used by the local contractor to pull a huge knife for laying drain tile. 2) As near as I can tell, the 747 has been retired. With your abilities, you should get it and restore it. :-) Keep up the great work!

    85. ZurdoZhuK

      I have 3 of them in fs19

    86. Giocattolo012
