Ever seen an Amigo tractor? Me neither till last year! I know nothing about them, but maybe someone here can fill in the blanks.

Some quick points from the article in LAGC. Amigo tractors were built by a factory formed by three partners in Dowagiac Michigan called DEMCO, for Design, Engineering and Manufacturing company. The company operated from 1959 to 1968.The company was sold to AMF. The three partners of Demco continued to build Amigos for AMF for about six months, these were built as AMF Amigo. The leadership of AMF changed and the production of the Amigo was halted. The article states that there may be a few AMF Amigo tractors out there but they are very rare.

Same here, never seen one, but they look like a well made tractor.

Hey... just for asking... what's the cost for the LAGC magazine subscription?

Greetings, this is my first post and look forward to reading this site. In responce to the Amigo Tractors, we own 5 of them. As the story goes, it was before its time. We have a 77, 1170, 1200 recoil, 1200 electric, and a 1400. I call the tractors of the 50's - 60's the BC (before computors) series. It is amazing the work it took to make products with the machines they had back then. Enjoy and preserve them. If you have any questions on the Amigos feel free to contact me. Thanks, Gt Man
