That is a large and odd looking machine.

I found a short description at the Caterpillar website.

A longer description from the California Agriculture Museum.

This is the Best Tractor at the Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont, California.,the%20top%20of%20the%20smokestack

This short video show a red Best tractor at around the 0:41 second mark.

I wonder if the height and motion made the operator's seasick until they got used to it.
