Fordson Tractor

<< >>
Fordson tractors were in production in the US between 1917 and 1928. As gas-powered tractors dropped in price, farmers moved away from horse-drawn equipment. Seventy-five percent of tractors purchased in 1923 were Fordsons. This tractor is powered by a 4 cylinder, 3 speed, 20 HP engine. It measures 42" across the rear wheels and 28" across the front wheels. It has front steel wheels with lugs on the rear. The original owner added an Allison hoist to the front of the tractor.
