Holmes Mfg. Co.

The “Holmes Little Giant” was a small tractor, indicative of the current trend. It was rated at 12 BHP, operated at 800 RPM, and had a shipping weight of 4,500 pounds. The auto-type steering was a great improvement over the stiff axle, chain steering commonly used. An outboard clutch pulley was mounted on the crankshaft for belt work.
