He Owns A Leader D Tractor
My father bought a Leader D tractor in 1948. It came with a 3-pt. hitch and with a Hercules engine. The leader was made in Auburn, Iowa.
    Leader tractors were made from 1940 to 1949. The year my father bought his tractor we harvested 128 acres of wheat with a wheat binder. I couldn't reach the clutch nor the brakes, since I was only 8 years old. My father would come running to get the tractor started on each new row. I can still see him running from the wheat binder to the tractor.
    If anyone has a Leader tractor, I would gladly take it off your hands. It's the only way I can find parts to get this tractor up and running again. (Vernon Vest, 721 Kentucky, Joplin, Mo. 64801 ph 417 781-0627)
