Steam Engine Tractor

Steam Engine Tractor  A steam tractor is an agricultural vehicle powered by a steam engine usually used for plowing and threshing during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Steam tractors were designed specifically for agricultural uses to replace horses for pulling farm implements like plows and later for powering other farming machines.  These tractors were gradually replaced by the mid-1920s with the less expensive tractors using internal combustion engines.   For more information, check out this year’s Threshermen’s Reunion.
