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.

HC assembled the first F-20 in early January 1932. By the time the company stopped producing these tractors, more than 154,000 had gone out the doors at Rock Island Farmall Works.
