  • Featuring: The White 2255 - North of the Border. During the Muscle Tractor era, the demand for more power led many manufacturers to use the V-8 engine configuration. Oliver was no different and put a V-8 Cat in the 2255. While this tractor was primarily sold in the states, a northern version existed and was painted as the White 2255. Feature tractor (previous) owner: George Schaaf - Frankfort, IL.
  • Pfister Seed Corn: The Oliver Connection. The Pfister name has been well known in the seed corn industry for nearly a century. But few know the role Oliver played in the early years of Pfister’s business in El Paso, Illinois. He was an innovator in the production of seed corn as well as an inventor.  
  • Series 800 Plows: Equipment that works in one area of the country might not work as well in other areas. Because of this, Oliver might have offered products through certain branches and not others. One such tool was the 800 series plow.
  • Oliver Whistle: Lunch Time! While they are not that common, Oliver did offer a whistle but it was referred to as a “chime whistle”. These are quite rare and often overlooked. In the parts book, these are part number CS-1275. It is also noted in the book that they were seldom ordered so be careful when ordering.
  • Roadbuilding with Cletrac, Pt 1. I think very few of us remember what it would be like to face unimproved dirt roads as the only means of travel. I know there are unpaved or gravel roads in some parts of the country, but these, at the very least, usually have a built up base and are graded. The following account gives a little idea as to what pre-automobile roads were like. This article appeared in the New Holland Clarion Newspaper (Pennsylvania) on March 23, 1884.
  • Another Oliver User: Joe Buberl. Located ten miles from the Wisconsin border between the towns of Hugo and Stillwater, this land is where Joe grew up.In addition to having carpentry skills, he is also a trained mechanic and works on everything from cars and trucks to his long line of Oliver and Cockshutt tractors, plus the various pieces of farm equipment he owns.
