ATC farm tractors

ATC was the acronym for American Tractor Company. It was an Indiana based business that was initiated when a factory located in Churubusco was acquired by the Rojtman family. ATC offered crawlers under the TerraTrac branding. These machines were heavily influenced by the US and German army’s crawlers and were thus built extremely tough. This is one of the reasons why ATC machines were able to withstand the test of time and were thus reminiscent of reliability and superior quality. 1956 was a watershed moment for the company, as it was the year that ATC merged with Case, becoming a vital component of the company's crawler production division. In 1960 all production was shifted to Iowa which initially hurt the production line but proved as a blessing in the times to come. The company existed as a standalone brand between the years 1950 and 1956 and within these 6 years, it was able to offer a total of 18 different tractor models with power ranging between 25 and 62 hp. This shows the company’s motives for meeting the needs of all clients regardless of their size and requirements. Some of the prominent tractor models offered by the company included but were not limited to DT-34, GT-35 and M-4.
