Found this online but I have no idea what it is.  It looks to be built very solid.  The tiller is hydraulically driven and looks like it might be to big for the tractor.  I kind of reminds me of a Terramite tractor.  Here are some pictures so tell me what you think.

Not sure about brand but looks very similar to an aircraft tug we used in Hawaii on an old army base. I believe that tractor was a bored sailor build, as it had more horsepower than my first three cars combined!

It has the optional heated seat. 

 

Nothing like hot hydraulic oil circulating on your back side on a 100 degree day.

A Heinz 57. Looks like Case tiller. 4 bolt rear wheels.

    all hydraulic everything, even the steering. I don't see a drive system?  no handles foot pedals, nothing ??  wonder how it drives.  almost want to say modified fork truck drive system ?? pretty neat whatever it is. looks heavy as sin!!

Very interesting. It probably would be a money pit to keep running and time consuming to figure out what parts were used. Still would be fun to have and use.

Interesting machine.  Probably drives by the large had lever on the right side by the tiller engage/disengage lever.  The lift set up looks something like an outboard motor trim & tilt mechanism.

It does look heavy. I didn't notice that it has hydraulic steering. The hitch looks very different.

You might be right about the tug. What do you think of the hitch? Is it like a tug?

I would like to bring it home, but I need to find out what it is first.

Does the owner know any history of it? I wouldn't let not knowing what it was stop me. You'll have plenty of time to research it after you get it.
