The Terra Crusher had all the major features</span> 4 by 4 with two shocks per tire, in two-speed transmission, as well as reverse gear and on-board starting system. In addition, Terra Crusher was bigger than the competition at the time from other manufactures. A firm favorite for many over the years, and now becoming rare. The unique FRAT System (Forward Reverse Automatic Transmission) meant that the Terra Crusher could be brought to a stop and immediately put into reverse gear (something new for the time and now seems to be obsolete). On first seeing one of these a few years ago I new that I had to get hands on one and opportunity came along shortly after with a near perfect condition. If you like or liked the Terra Crusher then join on to this SIG, hopefully we’ll see more than there appear to be.
