I don't know much about the REO company and wondering if anyone might have literature or know anything about the rebranded Page tractors by chance? In all my Page and Red E research, I have never heard mention of them supplying tractors to REO until finding this picture which resembles a 1958-1960 Page 12RG tractor badged as a REO.

 

Thanks in advance for any insight!

 

PS: I'd love to find this picture if anyone recognizes this tractor. :) It was on the Yesterday's Tractors classified ads in KY I believe a few years ago.

Could the "REO" be off a big truck?

Check our Manuals Section. I came across some REO stuff in there several years ago. I don't remember where it was but I think that it was in an unexpected place. Good Luck, Rick

 I don't know much about Reo's early history. In the 60's Reo was purchased by Wheel Horse. Wheel horse continued to use the Reo name for a while on some low line equipment like rear engine riders & some walk behind equipment.

Thanks, that's consistent with what I read as well. I would assume that after WH purchased Reo, that WH would have used their own tractors to brand as Reo. The Page front engine riders didn't come out until 1958, so any rebranding of Page tractors would have been pretty short lived, no earlier than 1958 to when WH acquired Reo in the 60's I would assume.
