Two Notable Cockshutt Tractors
May 01, 2012
This 1939 Cockshutt 90 and 1940 Cockshutt 99 were featured as tractors of the month of May in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.
Cockshutt, the Canadian firm with headquarters in Brantford, Ontario, earned an excellent reputation among farmers with its plows—dating all the way back to the 1880s. In modern times, Cockshutt had a first in the field, introducing a live PTO in early 1945 on its Model 30.
At one time, Cockshutt bought tractors made in the U.S., later Cockshutt built and sold tractors in the U.S. Either way it could be the same tractor—different paint, new name.
The unstyled 99, with its big Waukesha 4-cyl. engine (443 cu. in.) made 62 PTO hp at 1,125 rpm. Cockshutt superseded the 90 and 99 with its own Model 50 in 1952.
