Jay Leno drives the $625,000 Case IH Quadtrac
Handling it requires both the steering wheel and a joystick
Think of the Case IH Quadtrac as the Stegosaurus of land machinery and have a better look at it as it makes an appearance on Jay Leno’s Garage.
Heavy-duty tractor for hardcore farmers. That’s a good description of the thingamajig you’re looking at, but their makers call them the most powerful tractors in the market.
More interesting is that its tracks are not built as an add-on. The actual tractor is built around the four tracks, so you can’t fit wheels on it and then switch back to tracks.
It also tips the scales at 52,000 lb (that’s 26 tons) and uses a 12.9-liter six-cylinder engine with common-rail fuel injection that makes 2,169 lb-ft of twist (2,940 Nm). Price tag: $625,000.
