Belle City Mfg. Co.

Belle City found a new use for the Fordson tractor with a crawler tractor conversion kit offered in 1926. Known as the “Belle City Trackpull”, it adapted the Fordson to many new applications. Fordson dealers handled the Trackpull as well as other Belle City products, including the “New Racine” thresher. Few implement manufacturers would have anything to do with Henry Ford or his tractor because of the bitterness created some years before. A few, such as Belle City, joined forces with Ford and prospered for at least a few years.
