Current and ongoing 9390 AMTRAC project

 

 

This page will be updated as work progresses, but it started with this tractor, then not looking too impressive.

To the observant, there is a certain omission in the engine department.

This represents an opportunity that has been anticipated for many years.

It will be something a bit special......

CASE STEIGERS

 

 

Large Cheap Horses, - to get the job done quickly,

and on time. 

Sounds sense ?

Then why not buy one from us, since we can give the back up and supply parts.

Here's how it works:-

We supply parts worldwide, however only the clients who have purchased tractors from us have access to the stock of obsolete parts which we have specially made in batches, and also our valuable free advice service.

This advice is what our tractor clients buy along with their tractor, and they also get 20% discount on new parts.

 We usually know the answers, and our clients get the answers which are intended to save their valuable time 

and money.  

These brutes have been coming here since 1984.  

Although they are solid and reliable it's likely that we will have seen most problems before. 

 

It's our speciality, and we enjoy being anoraks !

 

 

If you're into the ultimate in real Power Tools...
You've come to the right place!

 

A line from a 225 bhp Steiger / Ford FW 20, to an Amtrac 525 bhp Tigress .

We have sold and made tractors up to 718bhp.

 

 

 

 

American Tractors (now Amtrac) is unique in offering you the tools to do the job! 

We specialise in rebuilt Steigers, Ford FWs and Case Steigers.

Our reputation is built on solid reliability and a high level of personal service.

We have also hand built artic tractors to the client's specification like "Tiny",  

this Caterpillar engined 525bhp Lioness on twin 710 x 38 tyres.

Jack (aged 13) driving 'Tiny' (aged 2)

 

The Caterpillar engined 460 bhp Lioness below was built in 1998. 

It was then the quietest and one of the most powerful tractors that Silsoe had ever tested, 

measuring only 77 dba at the drivers ear with both doors open travelling at full revs. 

It recorded 72 dba travelling at full load speed with the doors closed.

 

Below is the prototype Tigress built here in 1992. 

It was rebuilt in different guises three times in a brief 630 hour life, and then dismantled. (too expensive to HSE cab test for a one off).  However the components have been bought by a collector for him to rebuild.

Version 1 and version 2 (above) were 470 bhp. Version 3 was 525 bhp in 1994.
