Collection Storage Facility

Provenance:

The Allis-Chalmers Model G tractor was donated to the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum in 1974 by a private collector.

Technical History:

This Allis-Chalmers Model G tractor was a favourite of vegetable growers, nursery workers, and farmers with small holdings. Seated in front of the engine (over front-mounted implements designed especially for this model), operators of the Model G had an unobstructed view. This unobstructed view facilitated the precision work needed for delicate crops. The rear-mounted engine provided the needed traction, and the wheels could be adjusted to fit between rows of produce.
