Vintage farm equipment on display harvesting an oat field in McMinnville, Oregon. Antique farm equipment included a vintage 12-24 Hart-Parr farm tractor.
The 12-24 Hart-Parr farm tractor is a beautiful piece of restored farm equipment that has passed from generation to generation in the Dezotell family. Tim Dezotell gives us a personal view starting up his vintage shiny green and red 1930’s Hart-Parr 12-24 Farm Tractor that delivered 12 horsepower to the drawbar and 24 horsepower to the pulley wheel.

Hart-Parr Tractor Company began operations in 1897. W.H. Williams, Sales Manager in 1907, decided the words “traction engine” were vague and too long to be used in press releases, so he coined the word “Tractor”, a combination of the words traction and power, instead. For this reason, and because the Charles City plant was the first to be continuously and exclusively used for tractor production, Hart-Parr often used the slogan “Founders of the Tractor Industry” in their advertising.
