The Restoration: Big Roy
What was the purpose behind this design of this tractor verses a common 4 wheel drive in the 70s ?
Awesome job... and really great work on the TV and Video Camera - very cool... thank you for sharing.
Nice to see him restored but sad to see him in a museum. Old equipment should be preserved...but not "mummified" and placed in a museum. Let them work. Same with the USS Missouri...she should be recomissioned and regularly put to sea.
8 tires in a row would be a a pulling animal! Not so great for compaction however.
It used to sit in the parking lot of the Versatile plant here in Fargo ND, just east of the Steiger Tractor plant I worked at.
Interesting information on this tractor.
who wants to see big bud vs big roy
Never heard of it
I am glad to hear that it has been restored back to it's original state. I would love to see it in person someday. My bucket list.
Thank you for sharing this story.
How a many a horspower ya got on that a little booger?
I remember seeing that tractor, as a kid in the early 80s, at the Swan River, Manitoba, Rodeo. Three seats? A TV? What was this crazy thing from the future???
Now my SUV has a backup camera. And I love it.
"Everything went together without a hitch" yeah we had a small hitch with the gear shifts... 😂😂😂
all you had to do was remember how you took it apart moron
Wow, what an amazing video of an amazing machine. I have seen pictures of Big Roy many years ago. So glad to see the work done to keep him in pristine condition. Oh and if by any chance, maybe one day I could borrow it to hook up to my 6 foot bush hog mower. That would be great. Thanks again for sharing!
Hell of a job. That's a company treasure. Glad I was able to see it a couple years ago at Big Iron.
Great to see Versatile recognise and acknowledge their past with the anniversary tractors and restoration of Big Roy.
It would have been no small feat (or cost no doubt) for a company to undertake but I think well worth it and I hope they feel the same, those retro anniversary tractors are beautifully done, one of the best efforts across the brands for a long time 😎
For Big Roy to also be faithfully revitalised and sured up for the future means it's cemented its place as a great visionary piece of equipment for many more generations to appreciate. I hope to see it one day.
Now that is a tractor!
