Exclamation Rite 470 to 750

Does anyone know of anyone who owns Rite tractors that wants to maybe sell? Im looking for tractors from 500 to the 850. Any help would be very much appreciated. I own one and looking for more. Any names, towns, and #'s would really help. Thanks!! You can email me at [email protected] or 405-249-2248 Ty

With all respect to those tractors and without beating a dead horse, a used Big Bud Series 3 would be a bit easier to find. I believe they made only 37 or so Rite tractors.

This site here might be of some help, maybe not. I believe the 750 was the largest they made. I know of no 850 model officially made. It like the Big Bud 650/50 had the Detroit 12V92.

I suppose Dave Curtis still runs the company. Folks at Big Equipment might be able to track down one and direct you to Dave. As a matter of fact their was one for sale on Tractor House or Fastline a few months ago. I believe I posted a link.

Good Luck!

Try this # (406) 453-7707 D & V Sales, mentions Dave Curtis.

Well I already own one 470 and really like it, besides Ron wants $220,000 for the 650/50 and thats more than I want to pay, but they are great tractors! I want to find another Rite it will just take time. Dave has a 470 new, but I want used.I was told the 707 was cranked up to 850 but that is here-say. Appreciate any help and thank you.

If you don't mind me asking, how much does a new Rite 470 go for?

Yeah, that 650/50 has been there awhile! If it has a new Cummins QSK23 in it maybe so, but even then that engine would cost, I'm guessing new around $75K, maybe more.???

Didn't the Rite 707 have a Cummins KTA1150 in it? I don't think their efficiency was really effective past 600hp back then, or so I've heard.

Their was a guy on here that worked on them, had them, etc. Do a search on Rite Tractors.

750 rites have a 12v detroit in them. 3 were made with allison autos and i think cotta 2 or 3 speed drop boxes. KT models were the best in my opinion.

rite 750 earthquake

The Rite 750 known as earthquake is at randall brothers equipment just outside of holgate ohio. i actually just stumbled apon the tractor today not knowing what it was and did some research to find out that it is 1 of 3 750s built. it is a very impressive machine and it towered over the other 4wds in the barn.
