A 500 Horsepower Homemade Giant — the Story Behind the Honey Bee 2WD Tractor

Looking to add a bigger tractor to their farm and save some money along the way, Greg and Glenn Honey of Bracken, Saskatchewan spent the winter of 1978-79 building a giant yellow and black workhorse that has come to symbolize farmer ingenuity and sheer power.

What an inspiration, I am wanting to build my own tractor and maybe Combine etc. based on current machines, but without the washing machine mentality of "let's put in weak spots to make sure our techs stay busy and we can sell expensive parts". Less electronics and lots of fail safes to ensure continuing operation.
