Tractor Info


Following much of the original Big 4 design, E-B brought forth the Model “20” in December, 1913. It was also known as the Model D. Weight was 9,800 pounds, and power was generated by a four cylinder 5×7 inch motor. It sold for $1,900 in 1916. Pickering governor, Bennett carburetor, and K-W magneto were standard equipment on all of the Big 4 tractors. Proving the trend to smaller machines, the Model D stayed in the E-B line through 1920, several years longer than its bigger brothers. It was rated at 20 drawbar and 35 brake horsepower.
