Antique Miscellaneous Tractor: Samson Sieve-Grip

[Return to the Shed]

This picture shows a 1917 version. Originally produced in 1914, this tractor became very popular. So popular, that the General Motors Corporation bought out Samson - apparently in an effort to match the success of Henry Ford's Fordson tractor.

  • I am looking for a Samson M tractor. My great-great-grandfather bought a Samson M brand new back in 1922 and it was our first tractor on the farm. I live in Everett, Pennsylvania, and it would bring great joy to my family if i could find one before my great-grandfather is gone. The tractor had wide front end and fender wells on it! IF anyone has any information on this subject please e-mail me!! Thank you very much.

  • My Great Grandfather, John Minor Kroyer built the Samson Tractor Co, as well as Samson Iron Works and Samson Motors. He started the Company in the city of Stockton CA back in roughly 1898-1918 at which time he sold the co to GM, after the sale of the co he started another company called Kroyer Motor Works, its great to see that people are still interested in my great grandfathers tractors and many pieces of other farm equipment, if anyone has any questions please feel free to e-mail, thanks, John Buettner

  • If anyone knows of a Samson Sieve-Grip with anything remaining of the Flying GMC Logo fender decal, please let me know. Samson started in Stockton, CA, later bought by GMC. Did not last long after that.

  • My last name is Samson. I just learned about this Tractor (Samson Iron Hourse). I was wondering were I could find out about the history of the Samson company.

  • Hi, My uncle has a Samson tractor which he has restored to running condition. I was going to find him some more information on the net. However, his does not have the tricycle front end. Am I on the right trail. I remember that he said something like "...they quit making these and started making Chevys..." so I think it's the same outfit.??

  • Check out the book "Orphan Tractors" by Bill Vosler for article on the Samson. Can email debbenga at rconnect.com to maybe order a copy. They may be out of print.

  • one of the best sampsons that i have ever seen was at pioner acres in irricana alberta. It was in show room sape but it was a tragedy that the man that started the restoration and did most of the work did not live to see it finished. His parterns and friends finished the job as a tribute to him.
