Got 12 cylinders, uses ’em all! The dual stacks tell you this is a vee-type engine, but you don’t see many V12 tractors out there. The Big Bud 650/50 shown here belongs to Larry Addleman and it’s currently the only one of the two ag units still in the States, the other having been exported to Australia years ago. Addleman bought the tractor from Ron Harmon at Big Equipment 16 years ago. Harmon is the guy who put Big Bud on the map, and when it failed in the midst of the Twin-Disc fiasco, he created Big Equipment to support the 518 Big Buds that were built.

Addleman is a well-known Big Budd collector, with five in his stable.
