Neutralizer Tractor
Type: Sonic beam transmitter
Top Speed: Unknown
Main Operator: Brains
Appearances: Move And You're Dead

The Neutralizer Tractor is a small vehicle that is equipped with an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) generator, which is used to disable the radio control signals and electronics of explosive devices. It is also used to disrupt computer systems by overriding incoming data signals transmitted by carrier waves from external source.

To accomplish this, the Neutralizer Tractor utilises its transmitter dish to send a beam. Due to its small size, the Neutralizer Tractor can travel to many different areas for operation. It featured in Move And You're Dead, where Brains used the tractor to disable a movement-sensitive explosive device. Its front-mounted dish is also seen briefly in Sun Probe when Brains enters Pod 6 with Virgil to find a mobile computer.


On the front part of the Neutralizer Tractor is the EMP dish/neutralizing dish which uses sonic beams to render devices inactive. Inside, below the dish is the tractor's power source - a 200 bhp power turbine. At the rear end of the vehicle, behind the dish, is the operator's seat. Inside the tractor, below where the operator sits, are the fuel tanks.
