It is said that David Friday built his first tractor in 1939. He used parts from old vehicles because he couldn’t afford to buy a tractor. Very little information is known about when the company was formed and with no documented history, rumors abound. Friday offered the “0-48” tractor beginning about 1948. It was a unit designed especially for orchard use. This tractor was offered until the late 1950s.
