    Default Mahindra Max 25 vs Chevy Big Block

    This was just us playing around at work with my old truck and a new Mahindra Max 25. This video really doesn't intend to show anything technical. It was just plain old fun! Hope everyone enjoys it! Mahindra Max 25 vs. Chevy Big Block 454 - YouTube

    I think the pallet on the ROPS really adds to the traction. Good idea.

    Wasn't the pallet on the ROPS a safety measure to keep the chain from hitting the max 25 operator in the head if the chain parted? Of course it did add some weight too.

    Now... put both of them on asphalt so the truck and it's street tires can get good traction, then try you're little "test" again. Or if you insist on doing it on grass, why not try it using a 4x4 truck equipped with off road tires. Traction is everything and if the truck can't get any traction, it's weight and larger engine are useless, a fact that has been exploited to sell tractors, nothing more.

    Put 1000 lbs in the bed of the truck, put both on asphalt, and watch the truck pull the little tractor all over the parking lot.. as said it is all about traction.. of course the pickup truck would lose, There is nothing as helpless as a pickup truck without weight in the bed. A front wheel drive passenger car would have been a better match for the tractor than than a pickup truck. If you don't believe it try backing a 2 wheel drive empty pickup truck up a slight slope on a gravel road.. Light azzed thing wont even pull itself. Now put 1000 to 1200 lbs of weight over the axles and try the same thing... big difference. But I think the spirit of the demo was all just in fun anyway, not to really prove anything.

    It's funny that you mentioned Ford because I couldn't help but wonder how funny it would be to see the look on their faces as my Ford F250 Super-Duty truck was pulling that little Mahindra all over the place.

    When I saw the title of the thread, I was thinking you were going to drop a 454 BB from a few stories high onto the Max O'well. Thats too bad
