Tractor Info


In 1919, Alberta Foundry & Machine Company, Medicine Hat, Alberta, announced the “ Canadian” tractor. It was simply designed but still maintained absolute reliability. The “Canadian” was the only tractor ever built in the Western provinces and was designed by R. B. Hartsough, one of the principals in the old Transit Thresher Company in Minneapolis. The “Canadian” had a 14-28 horsepower rating and used a two-cylinder engine. It pulled a three-bottom plow and sold for $1,200. Weight was 6,850 pounds. A novel feature of this tractor was that its all-wood frame could be lengthened or shortened, depending on the length of the frame installed. The rear wheels also used wooden spokes. The “ Canadian” was only marketed for a couple of years.
