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
