The Mogul 10-20 1916-19 tractor was built in the International Harvester Tractor Works, Chicago, Illinois, USA

Model HistoryEdit

This lightweight Mogul 10-20 1916-19 should not be confused with the earlier (and larger) Mogul 10-20 built around 1911-12. This 10-20 was based on the Mogul 8-16 but with the engine bore increased by a half inch and with a 2-speed transmission.

{{PML Mogul 10-20}

The Schnell Family of Franklin Grove, IL has a restored and running 1917 - 10 20 mogul tractor. Our Grandfather, Vernon Schnell bought it used and began doing custom farm work with it as a young man. A number of years ago our Fathers, Howard and Roger Schnell completely restored it including it's original green paint. It remains a treasured piece to our family and it's history in Lee County IL as we prepare to celebrate our mogul's 100th Birthday this year.
