Around 1910 the Adams Husker Co. of Marysville, Ohio, USA began making the "Little Traction Gear", a tractor chassis on which the buyer could mount any make of stationary engine. The tractor came in three sizes, the No. 0 for engines of 9 hp (6.7 kW) and under, the No. 1 for engines of 9-13 hp, and the No. 2 for engines up to 20 hp (15 kW). 1920 tractor catalogs described the No. 1 with a 13-hp Hercules single-cylinder engine. The No. 2 was shown with a Jacobs engine producing 16 hp (12 kW) at 300 RPM. These tractors seemed extremely primitive by 1920 and production ended that year.
