This was one of the first crawler tractors produced by the newly founded Caterpillar Tractor company (1925) after the C.L. Best Tractor Company merged with the HOLT Manufacturing Company. This model was a rebadged version of the C.L. Best model 30 that had been manufactured by the C.L. Best Tractor Company since 1921. The Thirty design was based on the Best 60 but providing approximately half the power. The Thirty was a popular tractor in the marketplace as it was tough and reliable and was therefore chosen to become one of the first Catepillar offerings. The Caterpillar Thirty was manufactured from 1925 to 1932 and there were approximately 23,830 made in total.
