Product Information

Originally published in the 1910s, Avery Company Catalogue is a great reference for Avery steam tractor owners and anyone interested in the history of American Agriculture.

About Avery Company -- Excerpt from the Wikipedia:

The Avery Company was an American farm tractor builder, famed for its undermounted engine, in that the tractor more resembled a railroad engine in a farmer's field, than a conventional farm steam engine. The company was successful until 1924 when a change in the tractor market led to its bankruptcy.

The Avery Company made many traction engines, such as the 1907 steam tractor model. At that time steam was the only form of power and the tractor resembled a miniature locomotive.
