It appears that a tractor has disappeared altogether following last week's passage of a EF-2 tornado which shredded the area

HARDING COUNTY (INTELLIHUB) — An EF-2 tornado with wind speeds of up to 138 mph touched down in the northwest part of South Dakota last Thursday where it engulfed an entire tractor weighing 5-tons.

The U.S. National Weather Service reports: “The tornado also lofted and destroyed some farm machinery, including a 5-ton tractor that has yet to be found. As the tornado crossed Camp Crook Rd, several hundred yards of fence were either flattened or littered with debris, and widespread sagebrush destruction was observed.”

The tractor or any trace of it is nowhere to be found.
