  • Featuring the 100 Series: 1600 | 1800 | 1900. The introduction of the 100 Series was more than just a pretty new face. It was a truly modern machine that could do more than any other tractor in the Oliver line thus far. The goal was for the machine to take the place of a farmhand while covering the same or more amount of ground. Introduced to dealers in the winter of 1959, the march was “Vote For Power” and it didn’t take long for Oliver to come up with a winner.
  • 100 Years of Oliver. Few companies survive 100 years, especially in today’s business climate. Oliver did, however, and they were quite proud of it. The company pulled out all the stops to put on a celebration that would bring in dealers from around the country. It also included the introduction of a new line of tractors that would become one of the most popular series in the Oliver lineage.
  • Oliver Automatic Wire Baler: 100 is Better! The history of Oliver balers started with Horace Tallman, a hay dealer in Shelbyville, Illinois, in the 1800s. Through a series of events, Tallman would eventually acquire the Ann Arbor Hay Press Company of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and move it back to his hometown of Shelbyville. In 1943, Oliver purchased the baler manufacturer and made it their own.
  • Another Oliver User: Paul Lano. In February of 2020, I was sent to Lano Equipment in Norwood-Young America, MN, on an errand for our local Oliver club. As Historian, I was to pick up toy 1:16 scale Oliver tractors for future club raffles. Since Lano’s is an AGCO dealer in our area, it was the logical place to go for the high-detail Spec Cast Oliver toys. 
  • Ask the Oliver Mechanic: Question and answer with Larry Harsin.
  • Cletrac Facts: Cletrac 100 - Super Power Ahead of Its Time. By May 1927, the new Cletrac 100 was being introduced. It seems Cletrac shifted gears in just a few short months and re-rated the 75 to become the model 100. What brought this sudden change about? The Cleveland Tractor Company had a test field west of the factory where a lot of time was spent putting their crawler tractors through varying loads and conditions. 
  • City Encroachment: During the 1950s, many a farm boy gawked out the big windows of St. Martin Grade School watching the passing railroad trains roar through Rogers. Flat cars loaded with many different brands and colors of tractors, combines, and farm equipment exited the Twin Cities through the tiny town to disperse its heavy load of painted iron to dealers across Minnesota, the Dakotas, and Canada.
  • Hart-Parr Highlights: The Hart-Parr 60-100. Bigger isn’t always better. Such was the case with the Hart-Parr 60-100.  Information is slim on this behemoth model built over the course of 1911-1912.
