Minneapolis-Moline BG

Minneapolis-Moline BG tractor photo
1953 - 1955
Utility tractor
Previous model:Minneapolis-Moline V

The Minneapolis-Moline BG replaced the former Avery V in the line, although the BG's engine was significantly larger, making the tractor closer to the BF. The BG was narrower than the BF, as the BG was intended to be a single-row tractor. TractorData has been unable to find definitive production information for the BG. The end year for the BG varies by source, some claim 1955 while others state 1957.
