Located in Guttenberg, Iowa, Mini Toys made 1:64 scale diecast miniatures of Hesston, Mitsuishi, and other tractor and farm equipment brand implements in the early 1980s. Their tractors were fitted with real rubber tires.

They had connections with Toy Farmer Magazine out of North Dakota which offered some early farm implements with Toy Farmer cast on the plastic bases. Mini Toys was eventually bought out by ERTL with the Hesston Tractors and implements showing up in the ERTL line up. To my knowledge the Mitsubishi and Kubota Tractors were never used by ERTL.
