That's what I thought when I first saw it. But a little research shows that it is a Fageol heavy-duty tractor for pulling trailers in a road train. Electric motors for each axle, including the trailers, powered by that generator. Air brakes at each wheel too.

See the link I posted a few days ago:

Very cool, 47. Looks like it could pull 20 of those carts loaded.
As much time, energy, assembly and cost these took, I wouldn't be surprised if none are left today.
