John's Old Antique Tractor Pictures

After the success of John's Old Car and Truck Pictures I decided to try a web site on old tractors.
Again like on my other web sites my visitors are invited to email me a picture of their old tractor.
I will do my best to have the pictures placed on the page the same day I receive them.
You may use this link to do so. E Mail 
I would like to also mention that I am no expert on tractor but have always like looking at 
pictures of them. I hope as I progress with this web site I will get to learn something about them.

The pictures you see on this page came mostly from Kijiji and eBay and are offered for sale 
on those sites. I have also added a few of my own collection.
Some of these tractors have been restored but many are shown just as they came
from the fields and were offer for sale. 
The names, models and years are shown as the owner said they were. 
The years of some of the pictures is not shown. It seems that the year didn't matter, it was the make and model that was the concern.
If anyone know the year of those tractors you might want to advise me of it so the page can be updated. 


If you enjoy antique tractor pictures this site is for you.
Many of these antique tractors are shown as they came
from the field to be sold. Weed, sods and dirt.


A brief history of the farm tractor
The first powered tractors used steam and were introduced in 1868. These tractors were built as small road locomotives and were usually operated by one person. They were used for general haulage and the timber trade. One of the most popular steam tractor was the Garrett 4CD.

These early tractors utilized wide metal tires, especially in the rear of the machine to disperse the weight. The front wheels often had ridges to help them steer in the dirt.  This was not the best way to obtain traction and it forced engineers to come to another form of wheels.  A continuous belt with slats were  fitted to the front and back wheels.  This style has been made famous by Caterpillar company and is still used in heavy earth moving equipment today. 
The Formosan was one of the first mass produced tractors starting in 1916.  It was a slow, heavy machine that ran on kerosene and could plow 8 acres on one tank of fuel. 
 Pneumatic tires from Firestone Tire and Rubber Company were introduced by In 1932 Allis-Chalmers. These tires had a much better grip in the soils.

J.I. Case's first pioneering efforts at producing a gas traction engine date to around 1894.
These early machine ran, but not well enough to be produced.

Charles W. Hart and Charles H. Parr began their pioneering work on gas engines in the late 1800s.
Hart-Parr is also credited with coining the word "tractor" for machines that had previously been called gas 
traction engines. The firm's first tractor, Hart-Parr No.1, was made in 1901.

In 1907 under the direction of chief engineer Joseph Galamb, Henry Ford produced his first experimental gasoline powered tractor. It was not called a "tractor" but rather a "automobile plow". The name tractor was not used until after 1910. The gasoline powered tractors were used extensively in farming.

The Frick Company was located in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. George Frick started his business in 1853 and built steam engines into the 1940's. The Frick Company was also well known for sawmills and refrigeration units.

We all know that tractors are used around the farm for many chores such as plowing and hauling but 
how about playing music. This video has been around for some time now but it is still worth watching.
