Default Tucker Model 2742

Last (?) of the 'classic series' is technically a 1742 Wide Track. But they are almost always referred to as a 2700 series (not sure if the id plates reflect that or not). Tracks are 38" wide instead of 28" and have 6 bands instead of 4.

Now that we're into the six-belts, here's an odd one-off. Not sure of the model number, but it's purportedly Tucker's prototype hydrostatic cat, built in '83. It was offered with what looks to be a 12-foot wide tiller.

Unfortunately the photos don't show the axles well. Would be interesting to see what's down there and how they did it.

Pontoon Princess - can you give us any history on this one?

In what way are the frames stronger than a 1600? The reason I ask is my 1600 has a Cummins and an Alison so I'd like to compare.

That was just a semi-educated assumption (?) due to the added weight & torque of the diesels over the gas powered units that there must be additional bracing or gussets stock. I would also assume that any 1600 that had a diesel as an option would have had those added on w/ the engine. But that is just my pure speculation . . .

I guess right here with the hybrid machines?? How many of those were actually sold? I love how this one sheet shows the numbering mess/confusion.

4540. Wide stance torpedo. Makes sense.
4543. Wide stance sedan. Makes sense.
425. What?? 4 series, 2 tracks & 5 doors? Who came up with that?

Originally a 2542 - we built it into a 2544 for a customer a few years ago. Its a very nice cat, and it was a little hard to see it leave the yard. Not as much fun to tow around!

Fun thread to watch!

tucker sno-cat started in business in 1942 and in 25 years ending in 1967, the company had built just about 1200 machines and that includes tow behind trailers

some years were really big in production numbers, other years like 1944, only 1 was built and 1947 had 3 completed.

Would you guys consider doing a similar thread where you post a picture of every model made in a specific year? Or a thread where you show the refinements of a certain model over its run? I think that would be super interesting.
