John, Maurice and Douglass Steiger, the father and sons who built the first Steiger articulated 4wd tractor, have been inducted into the Agricultural Equipment Manufacturers’ Hall of Fame.

The announcement comes as celebrations begin to mark 50 years since Steiger tractors were manufactured in Fargo, North Dakota, USA (where production remains today).

The AEM Hall of Fame was founded in 2008 and honours "pioneering individuals, who have invented, managed, built and led the off-road equipment industry".

Inductees to the Hall of Fame must exemplify five guiding principles: innovation, industry contributions, leadership, corporate citizenship/social responsibility and sustainability.

Steiger became part of Case IH in 1986, and since then, the Steiger family’s legacy has continued to be crucial part of Case IH Steiger and Quadtrac design.

Last December, TradeFarmMachnery.com.au celebrated the 60th anniversary of Steiger tractors, read it here.

The current range of Case IH Steiger tractors includes models of up to 628hp (468kW) in Steiger wheeled and Quadtrac tracked variants with powershift transmissions. In addition, Case IH offers CVXDrive continuously-variable transmission versions of Steiger wheeled and Quadtrac tracked versions up to 540hp (403kW). Since the first machines were made, over 80,000 wheeled and tracked Steiger tractors have been produced.
