Bean Spray Pump Co.

The Bean 6-10 Track-Pull was offered from 1918 to 1920. Power was provided by that ever-popular LeRoi four-cylinder 3 1/8 x 4 1/2 inch engine. Thousands of these engines were used by many different manufacturers for motor cultivators and light tractors. Bean listed the 8-16 model in 1920. Ball bearings were used in the transmission, a special feature was the ball bearing crankshaft. International Harvester adopted this feature in their 10-20 and 15-30 tractors.

In the late 1800s, John Beam moved to Los Gatos upon the advice of his doctor. He bought ten acres of an almond orchard, and under threat of losing the orchard to an insect, he developed a sprayer. After several years of success with plows, fruit grading machinery, high-pressure fire pumps, and many other types of equipment, the Bean Track-Pull tractor was offered from 1918 to 1920.
