Brockway farm tractors

The Ohio based Brockway Tractor Company offered its tractors to local customers during the late 1940s and early 1950s. The family that founded Brockway Tractor Company had prior experience in the segment, having established the Leader brand of tractors. However, it was forced to leave the brand due to a dispute with the creditors. The company’s factory was opened in 1949 and only two tractor models were offered to customers. The business was full of turbulence and thus Brockway Tractor Company was forced to cease its operations within a few years. The company's tractor models included the 49D and 49G. Customers were mostly turned off by the brand's small selection of options because they had better alternatives that were offered by competitors. This was the primary reason Brockway Tractor Company was unable to persevere in the face of adversity. Another factor that contributed to the Brockway Tractor Company's demise was that its products were considered too expensive by locals, and with much better and more advanced imported options available from industry giants, customers avoided its products. Since the Brockway Tractor Company went out of business nearly 70 years ago, none of its tractors is now in operation.
