Antique Tractor Favorites

Antique tractor quartet stars at Little Log House Antique Power Show.

Left: This side view of the radiator clearly shows the lineage of the Big Four tractor. The Big Four Emerson and the Flour City 40-70 (above) are displayed for 12 days each year at the Minnesota State Fair Old Iron section to help highlight Minnesota’s tractor-manufacturing history. By unofficial count, the state has been home to 112 different tractor manufacturers since the turn of the 20th century. These two tractors were built within five miles of the fairgrounds, and shipped by rail to their final destinations.
