http://hornsbycrawler.org/index.php/Main/HomePage A different machine than Lombard, but not actually factory built and commercially sold before Lombard was, Holt would buy the patent in 1913 and decades later was portrayed as the "inventor" of crawler tractors. A british soldier watching an early demonstration referred to it as a "caterpillar" and the term became generic until Holt wisely made it his trademark and threaten to sue anyone else for misusing it.

   Consultant on all things Linn tractor/Trailer/Van made in Morris or Oneonta, NY, and can email data, analyze photos, parts recognition etc. And general fan of old snowplow and logging equipment.
