Bean

The Bean Spray Pump Co. of San Jose, California introduced their first "Track-Pull" model, the 6-10, in 1918. The machine featured a single crawler track at the front and two rear wheels for steering, and was powered by a four-cylinder LeRoi engine. An uprated 8-16 model appeared a few years later, which used an engine of Bean's own design.
