The Perfect Match for Farmers, Ranchers & Contractors
The NEW MAGNATRAC® MH8500 is the Swiss Army Knife of Compact Earth-movers! It’s packed full of power, performance & value at every level. From the robot welded lower undercarriage, to the contractor-grade seat, this is…the BEST machine we’ve ever produced! Dollar for dollar, the MH8500 is a GREAT value! No need to spend thousands more, on a less versatile piece of equipment. The MH8500 will do it all, at a fraction of the price! The MH8500 shares many of the same components of its’ predecessors, such as: a similar lower frame, the same time tested & trusted TCP™ Tandem Chain Path system and more! Coupling together these time tested designs, with NEW Hydro-Static technology, means we can out perform all of our previous models and SAVE YOU MONEY!
Options include loaders with an optional quick hitch system which utilize third party universal skid steer front attachment compatibility and farm tractor implements. Such as: snow blowers, concrete mixers, grapples, mowers, chippers, sweepers and many more. A variety of backhoe sizes are offered as well as a 6-way dozer blade with a standard 540 RPM PTO using a 1 3/8 diameter, six splined shaft, as well as other category 1 three point hitch attachments as well. See specs for more details! – Shown in the picture is a hydraulic auger.
Powerful, Clean, Quiet & Fuel Efficient
The MH8500 boasts an industrial 3-cylinder Kubota D1305, (tier 4) liquid cooled diesel engine. Standard items include: glow plug for cold weather starts, 30 AMP alternator for adding additional electrical components, RPM gauge, hydraulic oil temp gauge & a LOFA industrial ignition with hour meter & battery indicator lights. Kubota 05 series engines has been powering heavy-duty equipment for over 30 years! That’s TRUSTED POWER!
Powerful Hydro-Static Drive System
The heart of the HYDRO-STATIC drive in the MH8500, are commercial grade tandem piston pumps. Rated @ 19.6 GPM, they provide less heat, dynamic braking, variable speeds & massive power to each track! – 3,000 PSI! — That’s DOUBLE the amount of pressure from previous MH Series MAGNATRAC® models!
PFC™Priority Flow Control System
This attachment control system, gives you the utmost in professional speed control of your rear attachments, such as backhoes & PTO. With an easy to use “priority flow control dial” you can control your attachment speed with “pin point” professional accuracy. Indicator light allows for easy recognition of ON/OFF control of these attachments.
Ready to Run for Hours
Nobody likes to stop working before the job is done! Boasting a big 5+ gallon, easy to fill fuel tank, with top mounted fuel gauge, easy release cap with cap connector, and protective steel guard, means uninterrupted earth-moving is easier and better than ever before!
Keep Cool All Day Long
Constant hydraulic flow to the Heavy-Duty heat exchanger rated at 363 CFM and 9” fan, keeps your hydraulic fluid cool all day long! Durable, tough, bright & reliable dual 18W LED headlights, allow you to work late into the evening or even those early mornings!
Easily Accessible Operator Cockpit
Jump right in! The loader/blade controls are at an easy reach, track drive controls are ergonomically designed and all NEW Hi / Low hand throttle makes setting your speed for moving dirt and engine RPM for backhoe work a snap! From a slow creep to max speed, the MH8500 is easy and safe to use!
EOL™ Easy Oil Level System
Easy to view hydraulic oil sight window, means no opening up the hood to mess with a hard to read dipstick! – Simple & easy to use! If you see hydraulic oil in the sight window, you’re good to go!
Robot Welded Undercarriage
The MH8500 inherited the backbone of its predecessors; an over 300 pound all-steel undercarriage frame, robotically welded in our custom fixture. Exemplifying not only good design, strength, efficiency and consistency, but this also creates a very low center of gravity when it comes to hilly terrain and steep slopes!
Thoughtfully Engineered Upper Frame
The upper frame isn’t just any regular old tractor frame by any means. It’s a rugged, all-steel, almost 200 lb., meticulously robot welded, 13 gallon hydraulic tank, engine mounting area, rear draw-bar and provides mounting points for the loader, backhoe and other hard working attachments!
Heavy-Duty Track System with Time Tested TCP™ Technology
The technology behind TCP (Tandem Chain Path) is the matched AR200 pre-hardened sprockets of the rear drive and front idler sprockets. Simultaneously engaging both track chains provides redundancy in case of debris interference and the effectiveness of a sprocket width seven times greater. 10 heavy-duty guide rollers (5 per side) cut from 5/8” thick solid steel, encase the heavy-duty CA551X track chain and precisely direct the chain into the drive and idler sprockets. Center roller axles are easily accessed by removing 1 bolt!

PRICES & MANUALS
|A.||The process isn't real difficult, I would say it takes approx. 30 minutes to make the switch. Both the backhoe and the three point hitch mount directly to the back of the tractor. So, only one can be on the tractor at a time. We use welded nuts on the inside of the tractor frame, so basically you are just installing a few bolts. The easiest way to remove the backhoe is to put the stabilizer arms down and the bucket down and treat it like a "tripod". Then you can remove the backhoe bolts and pull the tractor forward a few inches. We recommend that you put a few blocks underneath the backhoe frame, to keep it at the height you want for future re-attaching. Now you can disconnect the 2 backhoe hoses. Next, you can attach the three point hitch to the rear of the tractor, using many of the same bolts from the backhoe. Tighten with your favorite impact or ratchet driver, and connect a few hoses and your all set. This is a general run-down only, please make sure to use all Struck manuals for complete instructions.|

|A.||To switch from the HL900 Loader to the SWB54 Six-Way Blade, with take approx. 4 hours to make the switch. I would say most customers purchase our SH44 Speed Hitch, and then buy a speed bucket or hydro angling blade. Going that route will keep the cost down and only take a few minutes to switch attachments. That being said, the SWB54 Six-Way Blade is a much stronger blade than the angling blade, so if you are looking for a "true dozer" set-up, then this will be the blade to purchase. For a more in depth description of the switch out procedure, please give us a call and ask to speak with one of our techs.|

|A.||Great question. You may want to just give us a call with all your questions, but in general terms: the MH8500 is loaded up with all of our heavy-duty components, whereas the MH4900 you can buy a little more stripped down or build it up based on needs and budget. For a more detailed explanation, please give us a call at 1-877-828-8323.|

|A.||Yes, our products are Proudly made in the USA, right here in Cedarburg, WI. We have used many engines over the course of our over 50 years of existence, including: Tecumseh, Briggs & Stratton, Vanguard and Kohler. All fine engines, however at this time we feel the quality of the engines we use today match the quality we produce in our products.|

|A.||When you let off the drive handles, (back to neutral) it stops the hydraulic fluid and you automatically stop. We do have an additional safe guard built into the machine as well. It's a mechanical dual parking/emergency brake, (foot pedal) that you can push down to stop the machine as well.|
|Posted by: Thomas|
|A.||Yes you can. However, you would need a new set of tracks and grousers, as the hole design of the track plate and grouser has changed to accommodate the RP72 Rubber Pad Kit.|

|A.||Yes, we do have "True Dozer Power" built into all of our machines, but please keep in mind our machines are lighter than large full scale dozers, so you will have to take smaller bites. The larger MH series MAGNATRACS offer a true 6-way blade like a real dozer and come with the float action as well, so you can float your blade or bucket when reversing, to level the ground. On the smaller machines, like the RS1000 or the kit dozer, there is a manual angle (left and right motion) available and it does have a replaceable cutting edge than can be angled slightly (tilted), but is not considered a "True 6-way blade".|
|Posted by: Stanley|
|A.||Yes, you can! The loader on the MAGNATRAC MH8500 or the MAGNATRAC MH4900 are not just loaders, they can excavate as well. Building terraces with these machines will work, however, there are probably a few different ways to go about the project. If you'd want a backhoe on the back of the machine to aide in the project, you can add that as well. You could buy a backhoe at a later date as well and add it to the machine.|

|A.||A MAGNATRAC or MINI-DOZER has a very low center of gravity and great traction, so in general terms they can do much better than a wheeled tractor. Read more about the benefits of a MAGNATRAC here. As far as a published slope and degree angle, we don't publish anything more than what we feel is safe. The number that we provide is 30% maximum grade-ability.|
