Tractor Info


Geo. White & Sons at Brandon, Manitoba were distributors for the Canadian-American tractor. It appeared in 1911. Its opposed two-cylinder engine had automatic intake valves and mechanically operated exhaust valves. Make-and-break or jump spark ignition could be used at the whim of the operator, and the engine could be run either by hit-and-miss governing or by volume governing. It is likely that the Canadian-American was the only tractor ever built with these features. The final drives on this tractor used hardened steel rollers in the bull pinions. These were replaceable, representing an important advantage since bull pinions were quickly cut out from plowing and road work.
