The Great Minneapolis Line was the trade name used by the Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company for its line of threshing machines and tractors. Minneapolis Threshing Machine was founded in 1887 and was soon selling steam engines from Huber and Allis before building their own design. Minneapolis entered the gasoline tractor market in 1910 and built a range of tractors raning up to 80 horsepower. The Great Depression put considerable pressure on Minneapolis Threshing Machine and it joined with Minneapolis Steel & Machinery and Moline Plow in 1929 to form Minneapolis-Moline.
