Tractor Info


The Samson Model M was announced in December 1918. At $650, it provided excellent competition for the Fordson, since the Samson was sold complete with platform, fenders, governor, belt pulley, and other features. These were all extras over and above the base price for the Fordson. After adding up the figures, the Samson ended up being an excellent tractor for the money. The Northway engine had a 276 CID. Clutch was a multiple disk type, running in oil. The transmission and rear axle were built as a unit. The shipping weight was 3,233 pounds.
