I was born and raised here on a 280 acre farm in West Central Wisconsin. My Great Grandfather purchased the farm in 1897. My wife Kathy and I built our home on the Northeast corner of the farm in 1977. We had Case and IH tractors and equipment when I was growing up.
In 1970 I worked on the Loren Young farm and he had Olivers, 880, Super 88 and 77, all diesels. I fell in love with those Olivers and his daughter Kathy. We were married September 1, 1973. We have four children and seven granchildren. My son Scott and I are diesel mechanics by trade, we have a large shop were we work on our old tractors, six of which are sued for antique and farm pulling.
My grandson Xander pulled his Moline U for the first time in Fountain City. He took a 1st and 2nd in his classes. His dad Scott and I were very proud of him. He did a great job for only being 8 years old, but he has lots of hours of practice at home. We had three generations pulling that night.
We have purchased parts from Steiner Tractor Parts over the years. You have an excellent and friendly staff with reasonably priced parts. I also enjoy your catalog. Here are a few photos of some of our collection.
