Past, Present & Future at Stevens Tractor
Since the early 70s Russell Stevens worked for various businesses that required traveling in our surrounding states such as Arkansas, Texas and Mississippi. Mr. Stevens would stop along his travels and buy old Ford and Farmall tractors. He would bring them back home and begin to work on them in his shed. Russell Stevens then founded Stevens Tractor in 1976. With the help of friends, they would work on the old Farmall Cubs, Ford 9N, 2N, 8N and NAAs.
In the early to mid 1980s, Stevens tractor would then go on to sell new tractors such as Yanmar, Deutz, Case IH, Zetor and Kubota. Russell knew small farm equipment would be ideal for the weekend gardener or small farmer. We began fabricating small farm equipment under the name Choctaw. Along with manufacture of the small farm equipment we also offered new finish mowers such as Big Bee, Landpride and Woods. We sold rotary cutters from many suppliers over the years such as Big Bee, International, Hico Howse, Sidewinder, Kodiak and many more. Hay balers such as Vermeer and disc mowers such as Vicon and PZ were visible as you drove on highway 71 just north of Coushatta.
Along with the tractors, small farm equipment and hay cutting equipment, we stayed very busy with tractor and equipment parts. With the development of a major Interstate soon to come near our town, Mr. Stevens knew that traffic would soon slow down on highway 71. This small town business would begin to develop a customer mailing list and mail out flyers offering tractor repair manuals for many brands of tractors including Allis Chalmers, Case, David Brown, Ford, International, John Deere and Massey Ferguson. The mail order business continued to grow and we offered many parts for the Ford 9N, 2N and 8N such as engine overhaul kits, water pumps, radiators, brakes, tune up kits, manuals, filters, hydraulic parts, grills, fenders, seats and more. Not only the Ford tractors but also the Farmall and Internationals such as the Cub, 100, 200, 300 and many more. The Stevens Ag Parts catalog was born and offered all the equipment, equipment parts, tractors and tractor parts. The original size of the tractor parts catalog was 11 x 14 and all the equipment and tractor parts images were cut out of books and pasted onto the pages then sent to the press.
With technology and computers increasing the Stevens Ag Parts catalog would drop down to a standard 8-1/2 x 11 and become much thicker. Still offering tractor parts for the same brands of tractors, the Allis Chalmers, Ford, International, Farmall, John Deere, Massey Ferguson, Long and Zetor tractor parts would increase in variety and parts availability. We now offer parts for all the compact tractors such as the Hinomoto, Iseki, Mitsubishi, Bolens and Satoh. The growing demand for compact tractor parts has been an area we have grown in obtaining engine parts, clutch kits, water pumps, hydraulics and steering parts for these hard to find compact tractors. In fact some of the last Case International tractors we sold in the late 80s had the Mitsubishi engines in them. Some of the Massey Ferguson and Allis Chalmers compact tractors have the Hinomoto engines. Of course, Yanmar made the engines in the John Deere tractors for many years and we are still able to get most of those parts. We offered a compact tractor parts catalog back in 2015, but have not published another one since.
The farm equipment and equipment parts catalog has also grown in variety of rotary cutter blades, bolts, tailwheels, tailwheel forks, gearboxes, drivelines, disc mower blades, belts, hay baler teeth, wheel rake teeth for many models such as John Deere, Gehl, Vermeer, Sitrex, Rossi, Tonutti, Otma, New Holland, Massey Ferguson, Deutz Fahr, PZ, Zweeger, Case, Ford, International, Pollard and others. The farm equipment catalog also offers sickle mower parts, sprayer parts such as Hypro pumps, Spray wands by Spraying systems Teejet, PTO sprayer kits and spot sprayer booms to name a few. Gardening parts like cultivator sweeps, cultivator tines, disc hillers, disc hiller blades, cultivator clamps, cultivator parts for those old International cultivators, disc blades, disc axles, disc bearings for most size tandem and garden disc. Planter parts are included in the farm equipment catalog for models like the Covington TP46 planter, the Cole Powell 12 MX planter and the Multiflex planter. Lastly, you will find a large variety of three point hitch parts in the farm equipment catalog such as top links, easy hitches, drawbars, pins, leveling boxes, stabilizer bars and arms, adjustable side links and PTO couplers, PTO adapters, and over running clutch or coupler parts.
