Cushman Motor Works

Cushman sold gas engines by the thousands, particularly their 4-horsepower binder engine. Their efforts in the tractor business were rather feeble in the United States. In Canada, it was a different story. The Macdonald tractor was aggressively promoted by Cushman about 1918.

The Cushman Scooter Company was incorporated as Cushman Motor Works in 1913 by Everett and Clinton Cushman. They were based in Lincoln, Nebraska, and began production for their four-stroke Husky engine in 1922. They produced engines for lawn mowers, boats, pumps, and farm equipment. In 1989, the Cushman Scooter Company was purchased by Ransomes.
