5-Ton Holt
Designed to pull a 77 mm cannon during World War I, this 1918 5-ton Holt may never have seen battlefield duty. “It has a 30 gas radiator, not a 5-ton radiator,” Ted notes. “Evidently somebody took the radiator and manifold.” The Holt’s tracks are studded with extra cleats. “That’s how they made grousers on the original tractors,” Ted says.
