1937 Cletrac Model E
Jun 07, 2011
This tractor is featured for the month of June in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.
This is among the first styled versions of Cletrac tractors. The word Cletrac is short for Cleveland Tractor Company. The firm dates back to 1911, when it was a big builder of early track tractors… Oliver took over the company in 1944. Cletrac used differential steering: one track slowed or stopped, while the other sped up. Many users preferred this system to Caterpillar’s. This Model E sports a 4 cylinder gas engine, rated at 1250 rpm, 22-hp on drawbar, 27-hp on belt pulley. It weighs a tad under 5,000 lb. Track shoe width is 8”.
Owners: Jerry and Jane Immel
Walterboro, South Carolina
This handsome-looking track-type tractor is shown throughout the South, getting bushels of bouquets from serious classic collectors. The Cletrac Model E is pictured at a recent Florida Flywheelers Club event in Fort Meade, Florida.
