Zetor was founded in the town of Brno, in the Czech Republic. The town has had a metal works since at least the mid-1800s. During World War II, the factory was pressed into service to produce munitions for Germany, until it was destroyed by bombing in 1944. The factory staff had begun making plans for production after the war, and the model 25 tractor was the result. Zetor was an early developer in four-cylinder diesel engines, diesel injection, factory-built cabs, and mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD). Because of this, and their low cost, Zetor tractors were exported through the world. Zetor also licensed production to factories in India and Iraq in the 1950s and 60s.

Landini was born out of Giovanni Landini's machine shop. Landini had been building farm machinery since 1884, and had been building steam and internal-combustion engines prior to World War One. Landini's sons carried on the business, building their first tractor in 1925 using a hot-bulb diesel engine. Their tractors became very popular, and Landini was the leading Italian tractor manufacturer prior to World War Two. Landini resumed production after the war, but the primitive diesels were no longer popular. Landini survived by licensing Perkins engines in the 1950s, and was acquired by Massey-Ferguson in 1959. Argo SpA acquired Landini in 1994.

Lamborghini Tractor History

lamborghini-r395-1.gifFerruccio Lamborghini started building tractors in Italy in the late 1940s. Initially, the tractors were built using a mixture of surplus military hardware from World War Two. By 1954, Lamborghini was building its own engines. Also, the company had expanded manufacturing into other areas, notably, high performance sports cars. In the late 1960s Ferrucio became disinterested in tractors, and the firm was formally acquired by SAME in 1971. The Lamborghini name is still used on tractors today, as part of the SAME Deutz-Fahr Group.

Kubota Tractor History

kubota-m9540-1.gifEstablished in 1890, the Kubota Corporation has a long history of manufacturing agricultural machinery in Japan. With an excellent line of compact tractors, necessary on smaller Japanese farms, Kubota entered the North American market in 1969. In 1974, Kubota introduced a 12 HP four-wheel drive tractor in the US. Prior to that point, US manufacturers did not use four-wheel drive except in the largest models.

The popularity and low price of Kubota tractors led to a number of "grey market" imports of Japanese models into North America. These models lack safety equipment required in the US such as PTO shields and seatbelts. Kubota won a lawsuit in 1997 to make it illegal to distribute these tractors.

Kioti Tractor History

kioti-lb1914-1.jpgKioti is the trade name for Daedong tractors in North America. Daedong was founded in 1947, producing its first tractor in South Korea in 1968. In 1993, Daedong expanded into the US market with Daedong-USA, and the Kioti tractor brand.

Ford Tractor History

ford-tw35-1.gifHenry Ford had grown up on a farm, and had taken a personal interest in providing an affordable tractor to the small farmer. He built his first experimental tractor in 1907 and was said to have made more than 50 different prototypes until the development of the Fordson F in 1917. The Fordson name was selected for two reasons. There was already a Ford Tractor Company in Minneapolis at the time, and the Ford Motor Company shareholders did not approve of tractor production. So Henry established an entirely new firm, Ford & Son Inc., which was shortened to Fordson.

Ford stopped tractor production in the US in 1928, choosing to focus on the Model A car that was replacing the Model T. Fordson production, however, continued in England. In 1938, Henry Ford and Harry Ferguson made an agreement for Ford to build tractors with the Ferguson three-point hitch system, and the Ford 9N was developed. The Fordson name was continued to be used in England until 1961, when the two branches of the company were consolidated.

Ford purchased New-Holland in 1985, but was soon looking for a way out of the tractor business. In 1991, Ford-New Holland was sold to FIAT. The deal required that FIAT stop using the Ford name on tractors in 2000.

Fiat Tractor History

FIAT was founded in 1899 as an automobile manufacturing company. Fabbrica Italiana di Automobili Torino (FIAT) began developing tractors by 1910, but was delayed by World War I. The first FIAT farm tractor, the 702, was being produced by 1919. With the acquisition of Ford-New Holland, FIAT dropped the FIAT and Fiatagri brands.

Massey Ferguson Tractor History

ferguson-te-20-1.jpgHarry Ferguson started in the tractor business selling Waterloo Boy tractors (renamed Overtime) in Ireland and England during World War I. While working with farmers to maximize the use of their new tractors, Ferguson began working on a better system to attach implements. His "Ferguson System", later known as the three-point hitch, would become the standard for attaching implements to farm tractors.

To demonstrate his new hitch, Ferguson built the Ferguson Black tractor. This led to an agreement with David Brown to build the Ferguson-Brown. The arrangement was short lived, and Ferguson made a new deal with Henry Ford to develop tractors using his hitch. The deal with Ford lasted until 1947, when it ended with a bitter lawsuit. Following this, Ferguson entered into an arrangement with the Standard Motor Company to produce his own line of tractors. Ferguson was taken over by Massey-Harris in 1953. The Massey-Ferguson brand is still used today by AGCO.

Fendt Tractor History

fendt-415-1.gifFendt was born out of the Fendt family blacksmith shop in Marktoberdorf, Bayern, Germany. Hermann Fendt built the first "dieselross" (diesel horse) in his father's shop using a stationary engine and an old mower in 1928. The Fendt Dieselross became a popular tractor and the company grew in the 1930s and 40s to become a major brand. Fendt's innovation, particularly with its Vario transmission and Xylon chassis, carried the company forward. In 1997, Fendt became a part of AGCO.

Farmtrac Tractor History

farmtrac-675-1.gifThe Farmtrac brand was created by the Escort Group of India for their tractors. Prior to the use of the Farmtrac brand, Escorts built tractors for Ford. In 1998, Escorts purchased Long Agribusiness in the United States and used it to import the Farmtrac line. Farmtrac North America entered bankruptcy in 2008 and was purchased by Montana Tractors.

Farmall Tractor History

farmall-1.gifIn 1924, International Harvester introduced a new row-crop tractor named the "Farmall". Its pioneering tricycle configuration would dominate US farms for the next 30 years. IHC used the Farmall brand for all their tractors with a row-crop front axle until the 1970s. At that point, the name was phased out before finally disappearing completely in 1975. CNH Global has revived the Farmall brand on some of their modern utility tractors.

Erkunt Tractor History

Deutz Tractor History

deutzfahr-agrotron-1.gifDeutz can trace its history to the Nikolaus Otto, Gottleib Daimler, and the first internal combustion engines. Agricultural machinery production began in 1907. Deutz tractors were very popular in western Europe after World War II. Farmers liked the simple, rugged air-cooled diesel engines. In 1969, Deutz mergered with Fahr, a farm implement manufacturer. The company was purchased by SAME in 1995.
