When You Put An 80 HP Suzuki Engine In A Tractor…! (Video)
Here’s why putting a Suzuki GS1000 engine in a tractor is a great idea!

We’re not entirely sure what engine this crazy Dutchman has transplanted into his Fieldmaster tractor, but whatever it is, it sure can go. We’re going to hazard a guess that it’s from something like an old Suzuki GS1000: it’s definitely an inline-four, it sounds about right, and according the sparse information we can find about this eccentric agricultural machine, it produces a rather hearty 80 hp.
Given the weight of the rather home-built frame that holds it all in place, you’d think that thing wouldn’t have nearly enough power to move…but if you skip towards the end of the video, it really can shift. It’s not going to be winning any awards or smashing any records, but it’s pretty wild nonetheless.
The Suzuki Tractor – Easily The World’s Best Tractor
You might have seen this video before, as it’s been on the internet a while…but this is the first time that it showed up on our radar and we think you might enjoy it. If you click the suggested posts on YouTube, there’s actually a longer video…but unless you’re fluent in Dutch, it’s pretty useless. And yeah, this is a Dutch build – there’s something awesomely eccentric about the Dutch when it comes to machinery and motors…that country has produced some of the weirdest home builds that we’ve ever seen on the internet…
Anyway, if you’ve got an old tractor that you want to soup up…then this probably isn’t the most practical way to do it. But that all depends on what your end goal is. If you want something to turn heads and have a laugh on, and old Suzuki motor is a great choice. If you actually want to do something useful with you farm equipment…like tow something, or plow a field, you’re better off finding a different donor engine… Take a look at this in action…it’s pretty wild.
