Description

We loved this little jewel we found parked inside the blacksmith shop at Capitol Reef National Monument, Utah. This is a 1940 Eimco Power-Horse tractor. Growing up in the midwest, I have seen my share of antique tractors, but this was a new one for me. If you look closely, you will notice that this tractor does not have a seat, nor does it have a steering wheel. Instead, you will see two levers on each side of the tractor; this allows the farmer to attach reigns in the same manner that he used to control the horses.

This design allowed farmers to transition from horse to tractor-powered farming. The farmer could use his existing horse-drawn equipment without the need to invest in all-new implements. The sales of these tractors were limited to Utah, Idaho, and Arizona. Since there were only 100 of these manufactured, this tractor is quite rare. Keith Peters
