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!
