Default Bates Model 80

Was the Bates Steel Mule Model 80 crawler actually 80 horsepower?
Thank you.

Apparently that unit was never tested at Nebraska as I can't find it listed.

I think the gas 80 had a 6 1/2 x 7 Waukesha. The 10 ton Holt with the same size engine was doing good to get 55 hp. Iím thinking the only thing 80 about the Bates would be itís name. Maybe thatís why they never tested it at Nebraska? The diesel 80 was more likely to get closer to 80 horse

I stand corrected.... if the Bates has a Waukesha 4-80 engine then it would have been rated 80 hp . Here’s an excellent Waukesha site. http://www.wehs.net/index.html. There’s also a very valuable listing for early truck and tractor engines on there as well.http://www.wehs.net/tractor_mfg_wmco.html. http://www.wehs.net/trucks-l.html

IIRC WEHS.nets' truck and tractor Wauk users lists are a bit confusing, listing some Company names and the truck/tractor they produced separately (when the truck/tractor name did not follow the Company name)...had some notes on it once, but probably didn't keep them...
It was/is a noble effort, to be commended...
