Welcome to the Home of EDGE&TA (Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association)

 
Positions for Northwest and Southwest Directors are both open this year and Resumes must be received by me no later than March 11, 2017.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association does not purchase or help with the individual sale of engines, tractors, antiques and other items. Please contact an EDGETA Branch near you to inquire about upcoming swap meets or sales.

The Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association (E.D.G.E. & T.A.) was formed in 1957 and is a national organization whose purpose is to stimulate interest in collecting, restoring, preserving, and exhibiting gasoline and oil engines, gas/diesel and steam tractors, power driven farm machinery and any other equipment of historical value. Individual membership is only available through the local branches and contacts to these branches are given under the”Branch Locations” section of this site.

The National Association is governed by seven directors elected on a rotating basis. The seven directors then choose a President, Vice President, and Secretary/Treasurer from within the Board of Directors with the exception of the Secretary/Treasurer who can be appointed from outside the board per the bylaws.

It is no longer an insurance requirement to report your event to have insurance coverage.  However, the EDGETA National Board of Directors strongly encourages you to report your events, so they are added to the Branch Event Calendar.   This will publicize your show or event for other branches to see.  It also gives the National Directors and Advisors a way to keep track of the branch activities.
