The Tractor

Who, when, and where it was invented.

Benjamin Holt

Benjamin Holt was an American inventor who manufactured the first practical crawler. Exactly 95 years ago people were lined up and down the street in Stockton California watching as Holt Junior Road Engine number 77 passed.

The tractor was finally invented in the state of Iowa. The tractor also did not become a success until 1911.

What it is and how it works.

Well... It's a tractor and the wheels were huge and metal. He built strong and flexible chain belts instead of gears for power from the ground wheels to the working mechanism. This also reduced breakage and down time.
