March Featured Photo

“Government Contract, Glen Canyon
Dam and a Golf Course”

Featured Photo

March’s featured photo was submitted by Judy Kitson. “This tractor is a 1951 UB Minneapolis Moline Industrial version, as can be seen by the dual tires and shifter for forward and reverse. It was made on a US government contract and still has the original government plates. The tractor was used by the bureau in building the Glen Canyon Dam that created Lake Powell. After the dam was built the tractor was purchased by the city of Page, Arizona and used on their golf course. When they finally parked it, it was picked up by Eugene Tucker at the city auction. He has since used it in the Page, Arizona annual tractor pulls in October. He and the tractor can be seen pulling on our website www.PageTractorClub.com in our cover photo. Eugene is one of the founders and the President of the Page Antique Tractor & Machinery Club – EDGE&TA br. 217.”

February Featured Photo

“The One He Dreamed Of”

February’s featured photo was submitted by Jason Hedrick. Pictured is Jason’s 1965 International 1206 tractor. “Growing up on a farm and also collecting antique tractors, the 1206 was the tractor I always wanted. While we had several makes and models of tractors, the 1206 was never one that we had. In 2011 I finally got the opportunity to buy and restore one. It was a complete front to back restoration.”

January Featured Photo

January’s featured photo was submitted by Keith Fink. “This is our 1942 Ford 9N which belongs to our 11-year old son, Hank (pictured). The whole family helped to fix up and paint the tractor. This is one of three ‘old tractors’ on our dairy farm, but none of them have achieved collector status yet as they are all daily workers.” Click here to see the other winning tractor photos that were selected to appear in our 2018 catalog.

December Featured Photo

“His & Hers”

December’s featured photo was submitted by Kim Horneman and will be featured in our 2018 catalog. The tractors pictured are a John Deere 720 and a John Deere 40. “My 720 diesel is a 1957 or 1958, pony start, has 3-point hitch and dual hydraulics. I bought it just out of high school and it was literally in boxes but somehow it became a tractor again. My husband’s 40 is a 1955 and is the latest addition to our family. We just got the chrome pipe from you all 2 days prior to this picture when we were having our family plow day at my parent’s farm, Daily Crisis Farm. He was a Farmall man but I think he has realized it’s okay to like both.”

October Featured Photo

“This is my recently restored 1952 Allis Chalmers WD. I won the tractor at an auction at the Le Sueur Minnesota Pioneer Show as a barely running, well-used machine right out of the field. I spent the first year just scraping congealed grease from the frame. The next three years were spent tearing it down into its various components, babying each one. Thanks to encouragement, technical help, and some physical effort from my friends of the Park Rapids, MN Antique Tractor Club, I got “Alice” up and running a year ago. It’s my parade tractor and my pride and joy!”

September Featured Photo

This tractor was purchased new by my grandfather in 1955 and was used on the family farm. My uncle did an overhaul on it when he was in high school but it was later replaced by newer equipment and parked in the barn. After sitting in the barn for 30 years I pulled it out and completed a full restoration on this John Deere 50 during my senior year of high school. I competed in the tractor restoration contest through FFA at the major ag mechanic shows in Texas and managed to place quite well.”

August Featured Tractor Photo

“I recently moved to a location with 20 acres. I was in need of a tractor. After meeting new neighbors and friends, I mentioned that I needed a tractor. One of my new friends said he would sell me his tractor and gave me his address where I went to see it.

This picture says it all. The shed was probably being held up by the wisteria growing through every window, wall, and door. Peeking out the front was this amazing find. A 1959 Case, model 210B. The owner drove it in the shed 6 years prior and had not touched it since.

I put it on a trailer and took it home. I put a carburetor kit in it, the 6-volt (positive ground) generator was rebuilt, and a new battery was installed. It started up and continues to run better each day.

It is a wonderful tractor and a rare model. It has power steering, low and high range, and is easy to drive.”

Tractors on the Big Mack

This picture was taken in 2011, the third year our of eight that we have crossed the Mackinac bridge in the Antique Tractor Crossing. Pictured in the photo starting with the front tractor, my son Shaun Keenan on his 1946 John Deere A, then my oldest son Dan Keenan on his 1936 John Deere B, and I am on my 1955 Allis Chalmers WD-45. All of these tractors have been fully restored with parts from Steiner on our family farm with the help of our good friend Bob Eggebrecht.
