Tractor Info


Central Machine Works announced this 40-horsepower tractor in 1912. One of its features was the friction drive transmission which provided infinitely variable ground speeds. Power was derived from a four-cylinder Clifton engine — a very popular tractor motor at that time. A roomy platform, half-fenders, and canopy top provided some degree of comfort for the operator and served to enhance the machine. Nothing more was heard of this tractor after its’ announcement was made in Gas Review Magazine.
