Hicks Tractor Co.

The Hicks 12-25 was a tracklayer but used oversized steering wheels to guide the machine. It could be operated with reins, just like a team. The 12-25 must have been a real delight at repair time with all of its mechanisms. It is hard to imagine the jolts and bumps provided free of charge by the steel seat mounded on the end of a spring steel bar.
