To Share and Preserve the History of Steiger Tractor

To make their farming operation more productive, Maurice and Douglass Steiger, along with their father, John, built their first Steiger tractor in a barn converted to a shop during the winter of 1957-58. Little did they know then that their tractor would draw so much attention and interest, that it would impact the agriculture industry, and that the Steiger name would be recognized as a world leader in the high-powered, large, four-wheel-drive-tractor market.

The Steiger Heritage Club has been formed to honor Steiger tractor history – from those early and humble days in the 1950s to today’s huge, powerful, four-wheel-drive articulated Case IH “Steiger” model tractors. 


About the Steiger Heritage Club

The Steiger tractor has often been credited with changing the course of farming. The Steiger Heritage Club was formed for the education, information sharing, and enjoyment of Steiger Tractor owners, employees (past and present), and interested Steiger enthusiasts and friends. The Steiger Heritage Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Minnesota.


You can be a member of the Steiger Heritage Club simply by signing up. There is no membership fee.  We do have expenses, however, and will rely on free-will donations and support from members and Company/Farm sponsors.


From March of 1958, when the first Steiger tractor was completed, to the present day, Steiger tractors evolved, revolutionized the agriculture industry, and have been recognized as a world-leader in the production of the large 4WD tractors.


Vintage and collectible Steiger tractors can be seen each Labor Day Weekend at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion (WMSTR) in Rollag, MN.

We are honored and excited that the WMSTR will be highlighting Steiger Tractor History in 2026!

Bonanzaville, U.S.A. also has four unique Steiger tractors on display.


See photos of Steiger Tractors in our Gallery–from the lime-green “barn-built” models to the green Fargo-built models to the giant red Case IH Steiger tractors of today.

And, we want to see your photos, too!
