Great pic but the word "tractor" was first used on patents in the late 19th Century.

Good to see.

There is ongoing National and International trade in Classic Tractors -  (tractors have  always been an important part of providing the world with food....) 

I have 3 , one of which was imported to Australia as a "collectible tractor"   It has been a sociable and satisfying hobby for me .  -      KB

A 120-year-old vintage tractor restored by West Australian farmers has set an Australian auction record, selling for $375,000.

Key points:
A 1904 Ivel tractor which sold for $375,000 has set an Australian auction record
It is one of only nine such tractors known to still exist
The tractor was restored by Midwest farmers John and Sue Illingworth, who collected more than 150 tractors
Constructed years before the term "tractor" was coined, the 1904 Ivel agricultural motor was the rarest item in John and Sue Illingworths collection.

Sorry but the reporter didn't do their job. While agricultural machines had various names at the time, the word "tractor" was in use in the 1890s both in patent applications and marketing blurb. I'm not saying all machines we would describe today as a "tractor" were actually called "tractor" but some definitely were.

The word tractor is from Latin, trahere meaning to pull. The first recorded use of the word tractor was George H. Edwards' 1890 patent request for a tractor to be propelled by steam-engine. This 1890 patent is one of the first known recorded uses of the term tractor to describe an agricultural powered vehicle.

 

Blessed A B C, always on about fact checking.
