Holt 5- and 10-ton artillery tractors on YouTube
Permalink   


 

There were many hundreds of Holt 5- and 10-ton artillery tractors in service on the Western Front by the time of the Armistice.

During the 1920s a number of these tractors were declared surplus and sold for civilian use. There are some survivors as well as

remnant machines restored to working condition. Found on YouTube:

Regards,

Charlie

great to see that these are still running.

Someone mentioned: "Top speed is 15 mph, which is pretty fast for off-roading 100 years ago." smile

Thanks for sharing.
