Adams Tractor • Coeur d’Alene Tractor • Boundary Tractor • Adams Tractor Lewiston
It wasn’t a bad living selling apples in the early 1920’s but when Henry Ford stepped off a train and struck up a conversation with Don Adams about the idea of selling tractors, as an alternative to being a fruit farmer, it was a no-brainer to pursue a new path. By 1929, he had established Adams Tractor in Spokane, WA and never looked back.
Adams Tractor distinguished itself as a reputable business serving farmers and homeowners in Eastern Washington, and eventually expanded its operation with Coeur d’Alene Tractor in 1948 to accommodate the Northern Idaho market. Twenty-eight years later they opened Boundary Tractor in Bonners Ferry, Idaho with the help of another family member, Cal Russell.
Currently, there are five generations representing three locations of one of the most iconic family businesses in the Inland Northwest.
