The Equipment

If you thought the tractors were hard to find....try to find this stuff!!!!

This is a listing of the equipment designed or modified for use on the industrial tractors. I underlined that, because virturally any piece of regular farm equipment could be used too. My grandpa plowed for many a year with his DI....

Many of the links below open in new windows
In no particular order:

Early Industrial Ds DI
  • Caterpillar Trailer Patrol (see DIpic4)
  • LeTourneau rear mounted bulldozer (see DIpic3)
  • LaPlante-Choate single-section sheeps-foot packer
  • 20 series five and six foot revolving scrapers from Killfer (see DIpic3)
  • Single or Double hoist/winch units and cranes from LeTourneau
  • A huge two-way snowplow. See some pictures- DIpic10 and DIpic11
AI and BI
I have combined the AI and BI, because they have similar sizes, and equipment could often be traded between the two. (in most cases)
  • One and Two way snowplows from the Parsons Company (see BIpic7)
  • Load scoop from the Parsons Co. in both Junior and Senior models (see AIpic3)
  • Broom and street sweeper from Detroit Harvester (see BIpic2)

40, 420, 430, 440
These tractors are similar enough that most equipment could probably interchange. If you know that a certain implement was specific to one or the other type, let me know. The majority of the equipment below is for the 440.
  • Hancock 7E2 Elevating Scraper, on early tractors (See 840pic1)
  • John Deere #400 Elevating Scraper, on late tractors (See 840pic4, 840pic5, and 840pic9)
