Minneapolis Moline Tractors were the workhorses for many farmers in the years starting in 1908, through the war years and up until 1963. They were also every farmer's pride and joy.

The Minneapolis-Moline Company was formed in 1929 after a merger between the Moline Implement Company, the Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company and the Minneapolis Steel & Machinery Company. They started their tractor business with the production of the Twin City models built by the Minneapolis Steel & Machinery Company. Production of this tractor continued through 1934 and was followed by many other popular models of tractors. The MM line was an extensive line to fill the need of every farmer. The White Motor Company acquired minneapolis-Moline in 1963. General Rule of thumb: Use the six point (parasol style) until the end of World War II. All metal parts are finished with a special baked epoxy covered with a baked aluminum enamel to provide resistance to rust.

From WWII on, we generally recommend the square units. Both the curved hanger and bent shaft units were produced and used by many tractor manufacturers. Both umbrellas feature yellow dichromate zinc plated tubular steel frame provides a corrosion resistant, durable finish. No painted parts.

Recently we have had many requests for the 40-inch 3 Bow Buggy style sunshade. The sturdy design features easy installation on tractors using home made, fender style or axle mounted brackets. Heavy gauge steel components withstand rugged field use and strong winds.
