Crazy old tractors 1 March 29, 2012March 24, 2012 Written by Catherine An old school fire engine. I think horses would have probably been a better choice here. This mini steam tractor looks like the wheels are too slick to get anywhere in the spring This one is at least 4m high and is steam powered. I guess it beats horses? The name is enough to sell this one… Not a hot rod – this is actually a luxury tractor! Here are some of the cool old tractors at the Western Development Museum.
