The Rite 750 "Earthquake" is a giant 4-wheel drive tractor built by Rite Manufacturing of Great Falls, Montana. It was designed and engineered by Dave and John Curtis. The Curtis brothers built 36 tractors, but only three were the size of the 750. This huge tractor was built in the 1980s and was powered by a Detroit Diesel 12V engine which could produce 750 horsepower. Two of the Rite 750s are working in Northern Canada. The 3rd Earthquake was the featured tractor on display during the Half Century of Progress Show at Rantoul, Illinois, in 2013. It demonstrated how easily it could handle a 15 bottom plow during the show. The 750 Earthquake has received a horsepower boost to over 850 horsepower; it is 18' wide and 14' tall and is currently owned by the Randall Brothers of Holgate, Ohio.
