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.

Bert Benjamin and Ed Johnston worked on a variety of systems to raise and lower implements. This compressed-air system never went into production but was photographed on November 13, 1934.
