  • What is Horsepower?

    Horsepower is a term we have all heard at some point in our lives. Whether it was uttered while admiring pricey sports cars or considering your next tractor, horsepower is an important thing to have, and understand, when it comes to the operation of equipment. With so much attention being focused on horsepower, it can be easy to get sucked in and lose track of what horsepower, and the addition of it, means in terms of the performance of the machinery in your life.

    The term 'horsepower' was...

  • Track Tractors

  • Hauling Your Tractor

    From time to time you are going to be faced with a need to move your tractor to different locations, especially if you hire out for work.

  1. Size Matters: The Big Bud 16V-747

    When conducting work on a tractor, how much does size really matter to you? We, as Americans, seem to at times be fans of excess. The bigger it is, the better it must be, right? So it sometimes seems. Over time most everything has gotten bigger from our vehicles to our houses. Farm equipment and implements should be no exception, right? The creation of the Big Bud tractor made this argument seemingly true. Perhaps these increases in size are a bit too much. Some might call them overkill....
  2. The Evolution of Australian Tractors

    Australia was a place where it was hard for tractors to initially get a foothold in the economy, as there was not initially much economy of which to speak. With a penal colony of convicts brought by the British accounting for a wave of early settlers, there was not a lot of motivation and success to be had. In time that changed as more settlers appeared, hungry for gold and pursuing gold rushes around the 1850's. Only then, as the population grew quickly and food production was necessary,...
  3. The Plymouth to Silver King Evolution

    In the town of Plymouth, Ohio, a company was formed that began building trucks under the trade name of Plymouth. While this business venture was unsuccessful, the man behind it, J.D.

As a result, Plymouth Locomotives was born at the hands of J.D. Fate. In time J.D. Fate found himself joining forces with a new organization to build clay...

With financial backing in place, Earthmaster Farm Equipment Company of Burbank, California began manufacturing tractors after World War II.

  6. Beach Tractors

    The jobs done by tractors are widely varied. Some do road work while others work on farms and even more perform lawn and pasture maintenance. Since their capabilities include so many things, it has become unsurprising to see tractors in places you may have previously not expected to see them. One such place is the beach. The first time I saw a tractor on the beach, I will admit I was a little baffled. With tractors previously defined in my mind as farm machinery, seeing one on the beach was...
