Tractor Parts: Steiger

A Brief History About STEIGER

The Steiger family, father John with sons Maurice and Douglass, were farmers in North Dakota.  In 1958, they felt a need for a larger tractor to solve their own farming problems.  The father and sons trio engineered and manufactured one of the first 4-wheel drive agricultural tractors.  The Steigers, using truck parts, designed and built the first model in their farm shop.

After logging more than 10,000 hours of farm duty, the decision was made to manufacture and sell these tractors.  The first STEIGER manufacturing facility was a dairy barn near Thief River Falls, Minnesota.  STEIGER Manufacturing was incorporated in 1963 and moved into larger facilities in Fargo, North Dakota. 

The distinctive lime-green STEIGER tractors supported big horsepower - up to 525 hp - and unique names, like Puma, Bearcat, Cougar, Panther, Lion and Tiger.  Each denoted a specific horsepower class.

In 1986, STEIGER was acquired by J.I. Case.  To solidify the family, both company's 4WD tractor lines were unified in color and name.  The name STEIGER never lost its appeal nor it's popularity.
