In 1919 Bolens apparently produced a tractor for the Beeman tractor company that cultivated and seeded. so that could also be considered the first one Bolens had a hand in making......

It's kind of hard to tell because the picture is a little fuzzy but looks almost like those are briggs pb engines on the model a's which they did have in the later production Cool picture I love lookin at the old tractor pictures in the catalogs
