Welcome to Steam-Tractors.com! This site is dedicated to the steam traction hobby, and is intended to become a one-stop clearing house for all sorts of information about steam tractors in general, with an emphasis on accurate technical data.

    Here (as they become available) you will find serial number lists, company histories, technical articles, definitions, links, suppliers, literature downloads, show dates, and more - but the heart and soul is the survivor's database. With your help, the list will someday include all steam tractors and portable engines known to remain, of the thousands and thousands of such machines built during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Please make sure your engine is listed (and your neighbor's, and your cousin's, and….).

    This site was new in the spring of 2004, and with luck, updates will be often. Keep checking, and see how we're doing! I invite you to contact me and let me know what you think - I know what I think the site should be, but I'm interested in hearing what you think could or should be added.
