Tractor Info


Otto’s 1897 tractor was long and low-down compared to its predecessor. The spur gearing in the drive train is evident as is the chain steering. Otto built a few tractors in the 1890s, and this one was shipped to Hope, North Dakota. Eventually, stationary engines for tractor power would be replaced by smaller, and lighter designs fitted particularly for tractors.
