Cletrac farm tractors

Cletrac operated under the title of Cleveland Tractor Company and was conceived by Rollin and Clarence White. Since its inception, Cletrac has focused on customers seeking compact and medium-sized crawlers rather than large machines. The company recognized that the demand for this segment dwarfed that of large machines with four-wheel drive technologies. This is why Cletrac did not waste its time pursuing the domain of these large machines and utilized all its resources in the research and development of its products. Cletrac was later purchased by Oliver in October 1944 and remained under its control for some time. However, it is important to note that in the years that followed, Oliver was purchased by a company known as White, which belonged to a member of the White family that had originally created the Cletrac brand of tractors. As a result, the company found itself back where it belonged. During the course of its operations, Cletrac offered a total of 24 different tractor models with powers ranging between 17 and 162 horsepower. These machines were also lauded for their high-quality materials. Some of the tractor models offered by the company included but were not limited to H 12-20, CG and W 12-21.
