Answer: The 1917 Moline Universal Model D
History: The Moline Universal model D was made by the Moline Plow Company of Moline Illinois. It was launched in 1917 and was the first production tractor to come with an electric starter, electric lights and an electric governor as standard equipment. It would be another 30 years before these important features would become commonplace in the tractor industry. The model D was made from 1917 to 1923. It had a horsepower rating of 9-18. In 1929 Moline Plow Company, Minneapolis Steel & Machinery Company and Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company merged to form Minneapolis-Moline.
