Farmers in the market for a diesel farm buggy now have another name to add to their potential shopping list – Mudrat. Designed specifically to tackle the UK’s challenging conditions, the Welsh-built Mudrat has been given an 800cc Perkins diesel engine, a CVT transmission and a tipping rear load deck that can carry 300kg. Max power is a fairly steady 20.4hp, but that’s enough for it to haul around an 800kg braked trailer and propel it to a top speed of 40kph.
