Tractor Info


Holmes announced a new tractor in 1912. By 1913 the company name was changed to Holmes Tractor Company. The “Holmes Little Giant” was a small tractor, indicative of the current trend. It was rated at 12 BHP, operated at 800 RPM, and had a shipping weight of 4,500 pounds. The auto-type steering was a great improvement over the stiff axle, chain steering commonly used. An outboard clutch pulley was mounted on the crankshaft for belt work. The firm was absent from the 1914 advertising.
