Hello all, today this is the last thread about french adverts about steel wheels tractor. The three last pictures are very special, the first is one original picture of one tractor , she was make in 1928 in Caen (next beach of debarquement in Normandie in 1944), the tractor is one Early "french" Austin built in Liancourt (Oise). In 1996, I have found THIS tractor in this place, second picture is my spiritual father (dead today)
on my tractor with plough (but not the original plough)Third picture is the same picture but with original colours.

All this Story is for Antoine Neveux...

Thank you very much all for interest

I have a Guide Des Importateurs from Feb 1920 for a Wichita Tractor from the Wichita Motor Company. It looks like the wheels in the picture pulling the grain drill has the articulatng pads similar to the picture at the beginning of the thread.Does anyone have one of these tractors? My family had 3 of their trucks that we used in the teens when we had our traveling vaudeville and silent picture shows. We have pictures of them from South Texas all the way up to the Badlands in the Dakota's in their truck's. They advertised for WMC for a few years.

I was mistaken the tractor wheels that have the articulating pads wasn't in this thread it was in the unknown tractor thread by Gede20 that was in Indonesia. The second attachment picture on my post above is to low resolution to show them though. This has been a wonderful thread.

Just scrolled down this board and wondering about all of the never heard of tractorbrands and their pictures in the early 1900's. a lot of these wonderful machines only exist on pictures in old newspaperads.
As I like old implements ( specially plows) I am wondering about all the different tractorplows they are pulling. There must be a lot of manufacturing companies too, and the most of them are forgotten too!

ps Any info on plows is welcome

thanks Gerrit

Perhaps a separate thread for pictures of old and unusual ploughs/plows would be interesting?

Hello all, I have found some "new" old adverts about steel wheels tractors in France

Begin with Garner tractor (around 1920)
Le Gaulois tractor (in reality one Galloway farmobile) 1919
One very original french electric winch for plough : Compagnie d'entreprise Electro-mécanique (1923)
And the end, one good picture of belgium Doyen with plough

Here is an ad for an interesting machine. I'm not sure whether "Forgues" refers to the name of the designer, manufacturer, place of manufacture, or something else - any ideas? Although they call it a "road locomotive", it sounds like it was designed more for ploughing.

Hello David, I think that Forgues was not the constructor of this steam tractor (probably an english product); but Forgues
made some portable steam engines and stationary engines.

Next pictures : the plough for this N° 4 steam tractor,
portable steam and engines.

Hello Christophe

Thanks for posting the images of the portable, plough, etc. Was this you who posted the image of the Passe-Partout No.4 before? I couldn't remember where I found it, but I had a feeling it was from a French forum.

It could be an English machine, but compare it with the French-built "Cail" road locomotive below. It has a very similar layout to the No.4, but there are also some differences.

All the best

David

Hi David,

The ad mentions that the big development in devastating land for vineyards, in 1892 made them search for a machine, powered by steam, that could help land owners in this mountainous region to devastate where other heavy equipment could not get. After 4 years of experience they had this ''passe partout numero 4", which means goes everywhere number 4, ready, together with the automatic plow.
Marc.
