Mercedes-Benz farm tractors
1925 is considered as one of the most prominent years in the history of the entire tractor production segment because it was in this year that Daimler and Benz who had previously been offering their products under separate branding went into a merger. After this Mercedes-Benz started offering its tractors to customers not only locally but also on a global scale. The company also has the honor that it was the first manufacturer to offer diesel-based tractors to the market in 1922. In the year 1950, Mercedes-Benz acquired Unimog and started production of farm tractors once again after having gone through a major break. However, it wasn't until 1973 that the Mercedes-Benz title could be seen on these machines. In 1980 Schluter acquired the tractor production segment of Mercedes Benz and thus no tractors are now offered under this brand name. With approximately 10 different tractor models, ranging in power from 60 to 140 hp offered to customers, Mercedes Benz was considered as one of the industry leaders in this segment. However as the brand decided to focus only on automobiles, it gave up the MB Trac brand and this is why very few operational tractors of the company can now be found.
