Fiat farm tractors

The Fiat brand was formed in 1899 as “Fabbrica Italiana de Automobili Torino”, an automobile manufacturing firm but soon the company diversified and extended its manufacturing process to produce tractors and was all set to roll out its first product out of the factory by 1910. However, contrary to everyone's expectations, World War I proved to be a stumbling block for the company, delaying its initial growth. As a result, the company's first tractor model, the "Fiat 702," was produced in 1919. The 702 had a 6.2 liter, 30hp engine that was strong enough to withstand even the most difficult tasks, but this came at a cost. In the United Kingdom, the 702 was five times the price of the Fordson. In 1927, the 702 was replaced by the 700 model. This tractor was also available in a crawler version known as the 700C. Smaller tractors were in high demand after WWII, and Fiat introduced the Fiat LePiccola and 500 series in the 1960s to meet the needs of this market segment. The 1960s saw a surge in Fiat tractor production as the company secured license agreements for production in countries such as Turkey and Romania. The 100 series was introduced in the 70s and 1990s saw the rise of 90 series Fiat tractors which completely changed the fate of the company making it the largest tractor manufacturer in Europe with more than half a million units produced. The current model of Fiat tractors includes Fiat F100, F110, F115, F120, F130, F140, M100, M115, and M160 to name a few. Fiat is one of the world's leading tractor manufacturers, and its acquisition of numerous other companies indicates how, over the years, it has been able to feast on its competitors.
