Tractor Info


Advertised as one of the “420 Fleet” instead of the model 420 Standard due to that there was so many different configurations. The first year of production saw every version of the 420 painted in the traditional all green chassis and yellow wheels, better known as “Phase I” tractors. Crawlers had optional 10″, 12″, or 14″ wide tracks.
