I made the previous list of companies that made tractors several years ago. Since then I have found some more and I expect there may some more show up yet. Leroy Quandt of Ryder N.D. sent me a partial list that he had made out, and I was able to get some more names that I did not have. I want to publicly thank Leroy for his help. The list now stands at five hundred and I think that's about it.
