Steiger farm tractors

Steiger was a company based in the United States that was founded in 1957 by John Steiger from his barn. The company rose to prominence primarily due to its large four-wheel-drive tractors, and by the time it relocated its operations to Fargo, it had produced more than a hundred tractors. The company performed admirably until the 1980s, after which strict economic crises forced it to declare bankruptcy, and the company was taken over by Tenneco, CASE's parent company, in 1986. Until 1990, Steiger tractors were manufactured and sold under both the Steiger and CASE brands. After that, the Steiger name was dropped as a separate brand in favor of CASE. CASE continues to offer the original large 4WD gigantic machines produced by the Steiger under the same name. Steiger offered a total of 88 tractor models over the course of its operations, with power ranging from 118 to 525 horsepower. Panther, with its tripled wheels, was the most prominent Steiger tractor. This gargantuan machine truly depicted the might of Steiger tractors and also showcased what the company was capable of producing.
