4WDman 112218 135 Big Bud 650/84 either
Big Bud 650/84
This was taken by a friend of mine in the late 80's. I am
sorry for the touch-up but his young daughter was in the
picture and I don't think she would want to be on a website.
The Big Big name was because of the touch-up :-\. Other
than that, the reason I put it up was because I have never
seen the stacks on a Big Bud set up this way, really
different. It is hard to make out but it does say 650-84
just in front of the stacks. This was taken outside
Northern Equipment Manufacturing on a tour. My friend runs
a 525/50 Big Bud. Enjoy!!

Re: Big Bud 650/84
O MY DEAR !! Never seen a BIG BUD like that...
eh... I really think that one-of-a-kind hood is somewhat
homely, and so does the dark red paint everywhere on that
beast... I suppose the number "84" denotes industrial-use
BIG BUD, like 525/84 also in that color scheme.

Who knows how many such 650/84 had been built? I suppose
less than 5 :-\
Re: Big Bud 650/84
According to BigTractorPower vol 1, Big Bud had a contract/s
to build/market the 665 Big Bud as a Scraper oriented
machine I suppose for govt. contracts, but Catepillar's
political pull nixed the go!!!

Any confirmation on this legend??
Re: Big Bud 650/84
I need help! I am looking for a 650/50 for construction use down in Oklahoma. I am going to put together a pull pan setup. I know Big Equipment has 1, but I think $$220,000 is a little bit more than I wanna pay for a 15 to 20 year old machine, for that price I would have to own it for life. Dont get me wrong I think they build very stout tractors, but thats probably what it cost new. I think these stout tractors and pull pans could give Big Equipment a great boost, if there were more out there. Please email with any info, pics or call would love to here any ideas or info. will pay a finders fee or 405-249-2248
