Really Old Tractor Video

Now this one is a real antique. The video itself is one I shot almost 20 years ago and the tractor was an antique even then. A circa 1911 Hart Parr 30-60 gas/kerosene tractor running a Case threshing machine at the Motherwell Farm/park on a sunny day in August.

Like the video Ralph. I schedule the tractors to run the threshing machines at the Portland show. Always try to have a variety of tractors to run the machines. Have had Rumleys, Hubers, Nichols and Shepherd, Allis A's and E's, Minneapolis cross motors, along with about 4 steam engines. I run my Case LA often on the seperators.

Couple special units were a truck with 2 flathead Fords mounted on back with a side pulley. Even ran a D-4 Cat with a rear mount belt pulley. I like lining up the tractors for the demonstrations and schedule 1 day with the feature tractors running all the machines.
