Carbon Robotics

"We're not exactly the same color as any of the tractor brands, so I thought that was pretty smart. It's something you have to think about. You know, it's like wearing a jersey or something, right? You're not going to wear the wrong jersey to the baseball game."​

John Deere

"It was a pretty broad line, and the snow mobiles were incredibly popular. We had some world class snow mobile racing teams. And I think the most enduring legacy of the snow mobile line was the tagline, 'nothing runs like a deer', which was actually created for the snow mobile line."

“We used to feature an antique tractor on the cover of our publications... farmers would mail in or send us - over social media, pictures of their tractors... Some of the feedback we got from that was just incredible!”

New Holland

"In the history of the company, the the merger with Ford tractor happened in 1986. And at that time, and this is certainly an unauthorized version - I've picked up through the years talking to heritage Ford tractor guys that were still with the company. At that time is Ford Motor Company looked at its business. They wanted to focus on automobiles. And so when the when the next generation of Ford's took over the company, they were curious about what to do with this tractor arm in the business, but they had a problem. They had tractors, and they had no implements. And New Holland was a strong company with all sorts of implements, but no tractors."

"I like to use a little saying, ordinary people doing extraordinary things. We take great pride in that, our materials manager started out on a fork truck, one of our top three trailer salesmen started out in the office verifying excise tax forms - we can name them over and over again the people who have grown up with the company."

"Ben & Jim Copeland were the first two to do this and that’s why the company originally was called BJM, for Ben and Jim Manufacturing. Ben was actually the father of the feed mixer, because before Ben invented the auger box there really wasn’t any way to mix feed in the early 60s. Then he kind of decided he had something going, he had something that worked pretty good, and kind of one of those things - the neighbor sees it and he says I want one, and the other neighbor sees one and he wants one. And Ben started manufacturing the auger mixers."

Farmall Century

"When Farmall made their 100,000th tractor, they decided to make a big deal out of it. They had a big event at the factory, with over 3000 people in attendance. They painted the tractor silver and had Cyrus McCormick III drive it off the line. That tractor later disappeared, and eventually a man named Ryan Peters bought a bunch of junk tractors from a guy's pasture in Iowa. He had it a while before researching the serial number, and realized he had acquired that 100,000th Farmall tractor!"
