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 50k, 60k or even 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 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.
The MH8500 boasts an industrial 3-cylinder Kubota D1305, (tier 4) liquid cooled diesel engine. Standard items include: glow plug for cold weather starts, 40 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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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. Axle covers protect the center roller axles for years of abuse!

We offer a variety of easy shipping and delivery options within the United States and Canada. From home delivery to terminal delivery and everything in-between, we have you covered.
We ship to thousands of trucking terminals across the USA & Canada. While requesting a quote submit your zip code/postal code and we will find the trucking terminal closest to your location. When picking up at shipping terminal, you will need a trailer to accommodate your machine. The shipping terminal will load your machine into the back of a customer supplied trailer. Some customers hire a local flatbed towing service for larger deliveries to their home.
The business you select must have a semi height loading dock or forklift to unload and accept delivery during normal business hours. You must make arrangements with the business to accept your delivery. Business locations could include: work places, feed stores, lumber yards, building supply centers, etc.
Your home must be accessible by tractor-trailer*, and someone must be home to accept delivery. The truck driver will lower your item to the ground using a forklift attached to the back of a flatbed tractor-trailer. The driver will move the item to the ground with the forklift. The driver can only move the item off the truck, not to a specified location.
All customers outside the US and Canada must find a freight forwarder to handle the shipping, crating, and any other duties, taxes or other fees. The freight forwarders only deliver to a business address. If you do not have a business address they can deliver to the countries closest port and then you can pick up the unit at the port or make other arrangements for the items to be directly delivered to you. Merchandise is payable directly to the Struck Corporation by wire transfer or PayPal.
