Ag by the Numbers – First Farmalls

November 16, 2023

The Farmall name originated because the tractor was supposed to do it all – hence the farm-all!

Farmall tractors were first produced in 1923, known as the Farmall Regular. It was an all-purpose tractor for row crops with 20 horsepower.

The first Farmall tractors had steel wheels. It wasn’t until the 1930’s that tractor companies made machines with rubber tires.

Did you know that Farmalls weren’t always red? When they were first made they were painted battleship gray.

In 1936, the color changed to Harvester Red No. 50 and was trademarked so only Farmall can use that color.
