When tractors went WEIRD
The Moline Universal D of the 1920s was a truly pioneering machine. It was the first tractor to use articulated steering, an electric starter, electric lights and an electric governor. Its drive wheels were in front, meaning the implement was often directly under the machine and the operator behind the rear wheels.
Tractor design took quite a departure from the norm in the 1910s (photos, info by Dave Mowitz).
