Countdown to the 2017 Half Century of Progress Show
Special Appearance- The DMI Test Tractor
Built by Bill Dietrich in 1990, this highly modified JD 8960 never saw fieldwork until it was retrofitted with a 3412 V-12 Cat engine. Weighing in at a ballasted weight of 55,000 pounds, this 625 hp machine was used for testing the trip mechanism on the DMI plows and for testing chisel plows. The test ground - A field with buried boulders and cement. With over 10,000 hours on it and still in use, the tractor will be shown for the first time to the public at the 2017 Half Century of Progress Show.
