  • hi, we have an old twin city that we believe could be a 1919 model but we are not real sure. how do we go about finding out we d really like to know
    William Farley wrote on Thursday, July 13, 2006 (PDT):
  • In northwestern Montana, Dad owned a large Twin City tractor with steel rear wheels that were at least four feet high. These wheels contained rows of "lugs" or solid steel triangles that spiked out from the rim, providing traction in soft ground. We used the tractor to power our saw mill that we ran on our homestead. It had a PTO with an 18" pulley on the left side that was perfect for hooking up to a belt that ran to the pulley for the saw's flywheel and blade. I do not know the year or model, but remember distinctly the big "T" superimposed over the "C" in an oval just above the radiator. The engine was very powerful and smooth-running. It was started by a crank at the front and the spark was provided by a magneto. Would anyone have an idea as to its approximate model year? We used the tractor in the late 1940s to the mid 1950s.

  • I am doing research with my son on this tractor. I have a picture from a farm calendar of this from 1925. The photo was taken by Ozzie Sweet. New Information on this as follows; it was built by the Minneapolis Steel and MAchinery Company and had simple oil cups that needed to be kept filled. The front wheels did not have bearings.

    Bruce wrote on Sunday, December 26, 1999 (PST):
  • I wish I could remember all the details; somebody out there will, but Twin city tractors were one of the forerunners of Minneapolis-moline. Twin City threshing machine co, Minneapolis threshing machine co, Moline plow works, and a few others joined about 1930 0r 31 to try to weather the depression. They were able to survive in some form for another 40 years....
