Welcome to Steel Wheels, a website devoted exclusively to pre-1930s tractors. The aim of this site is to give some information about the companies that produced these tractors and to present my photographs of them at shows and museums around the world. I have also included a section for collectors of pre-1930s tractors to display their own collections. Please feel free to email me with any comments or suggestions, or if you need any information about your tractor. Just click on a link below to get started...
