The History of Farmall Tractors: 1930-1935

In order to keep up with the progress of competition, Ed Johnston proposed improvements to make the Farmall a better tractor. Discover the changes that occurred to create more modern, small-scale F-20s, F-30s and F-40s.

Ed Johnston used these prototypes to test and develop the cambered front wheels. These, and the "duck-bill" steering column that topped them, went into production in 1932.
