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.

The F-30 was IHC's biggest tractor at the time, stretching 147 inches long. These cane high-clearance models reached nearly 100 inches in the air.
