Minneapolis farm tractors

Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company used the trademark of Great Minneapolis Line for its tractors and threshers. The company was conceived as early as 1887 and in the initial years of its existence, it offered steam engines to the locals. However, the company focused on the production of tractors only after a lapse of approximately three decades in 1910. The initial steam engines were offered under the brand name of Huber & Allis and it was primarily due to the success of these engines that the company was able to generate enough resources that powered its growth in the times to come. The tractors offered in the starting years ranged in power up to 80 hp. These machines received great appreciation from customers. However, the success was short-lived as the great depression put a lot of stress on the company which finally forced it to join hands with Minneapolis Steel & Machinery and Moline Plow. As a result, the Minneapolis-Moline was formed which continued serving its customers for several decades. Some of the models offered by the company included but were not limited to 12-25, 15-30 and 40-80.
