Tractor Info


Odd was the word to describe this 12-20 Ebert tractor announced in 1918. This was another outfit that never made it past the experimental stage. Tractor designers in those days looked at every conceivable method of building the ultimate tractor, and a great many designs, such as this one, were so impractical that they made no impact on the market. Perhaps these far-out designs typified a remark of Thomas Edison. After making thousands of experiments on one of his projects with no success, he was asked if he was getting any closer to a solution. Edison replied that he thought he was since he already had found at least 10,000 ways that wouldn’t work.
