Minneapolis-Moline was formed by the merger of Minneapolis Steel and Machinery, the Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company, and the Moline Plow Company in 1929. Minneapolis-Moline entered the lawn and garden tractor business with their Town & Country lawn tractor series in 1962. These lawn tractors were built by Jacobsen. In 1963, Minneapolis-Moline was purchased by White. Minneapolis-Moline sold a full line of lawn tractors until 1970, when the lawn tractors were switched to the White brand name.
