Wagner Iron works built 25 little giants at a time.Wagners was building pipe loaders for IH. Little Giant starting being built in the mid 50's.IH asked to test wagners tractors to see if they wanted to rebadge them and sell them through there dealerships.They didn't meet IH specs.So IH decide to build there own tractors.I have friend that has told me that his local farmall dealer was selling wagner gt at there dealership. I had the priveledge to talk to Bob Wagner about his family history.

I'm glad you posted that, thanks. I was going strictly by what I had heard and I'm always grateful when the story gets to be a little clearer.
