Tractor Info


The Pioneer “30” featured a four-cylinder horizontal opposed
engine with a 7 inch bore and 8 inch stroke. Proof of
the vibrationless motor was carried in an advertising
photo showing a coin balanced on the frame of the tractor
while a photographer took a one minute time exposure.
With its 24 x 96 inch drivers, the Pioneer “ 30” was an impressive
sight. The cab was enclosed with windows and a
back curtain. List price for 1911 was $2,700. The “30” was
listed yet in 1927, the last year the company was
represented in the tractor directories.
