I'm going to guess that you have a research document from T-C that gives you this information?
So does the document say that Minneapolis is the "branch" that the tractor was delivered to and also that Deere & Webber was the "final destination", or does it say something different, like a number, for a final destination?

If Deere & Webber is actually the final destination (the end purchaser of the tractor) then it would be all conjecture as to why they would keep the tractor. The primary reason I can think of would be as a workhorse around the property. Most of the workhorses used around the branches and factories were either standard tread models or wide front general purpose tractors, so an AW would be a candidate for that. I believe that they almost always had a secondary tag on them somewhere to indicate that they were the property of the branch or factory where they worked.
Have you found anything unusual on the tractor, or details told by someone else, that would give any clues about this?
If it was owned by and used at the Minneapolis branch for a number of years it would certainly add some interest to the tractor.
The Minneapolis branch was a big one with direct family ties. Sometimes they did some of their own "modifying" or use of non-traditional implements that were specific to the needs in their territory. The San Francisco branch was known for a lot of this type activity. Maybe a "demonstrator" of sorts?
