Minneapolis-Moline farm tractors

Minneapolis-Moline, as the name indicates, was a US-based company that was founded in the year 1929. It came into existence as a result of the merger between giants named Moline Plow Company, Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company and Minneapolis Steel & Machinery. The prior experience of Minneapolis Steel & Machinery, which it had gained by offering its own line of tractors under the brand name Twin City tractors, was brought to full use after the merger. It is also pertinent to mention that Minneapolis Steel & Machinery was considered such a high profile company that during its heydays, it manufactured tractors for industry leaders including Bull and Case. This speaks highly of the confidence these companies had in Minneapolis Steel & Machinery. The UDLX Comfotractor model offered by the company in 1930 played a pivotal role in bringing Minneapolis-Moline to the limelight. During the entire course of its operations, the company offered a total of 68 different tractor models to interested customers. This huge number of choices reflects the company’s ability to fully address the needs and wants of clients of all sizes. These machines ranged in power from 24 to 169 hp. Some of the tractor models offered by Minneapolis-Moline included but were not limited to 2 Star, 4 Star and 5 Star.
