Monarch

The Monarch Tractor Co. was formed in 1913 at Watertown, Wisconsin, and soon afterwards introduced two models of small crawler tractor, the 10-6 "Lightfoot" and the 20-12 "Neverslip". In 1919 the company added a larger 30-18 "Neverslip" model to its product range, and this was soon followed in the 1920s by several other models of heavyweight crawler with enclosed engine compartments and operator cabs. Allis-Chalmers purchased the Monarch company in 1928 and continued to crawlers production, firstly as the Monarch Tractors Division and then under the Allis-Chalmers name.
