Yellow Medicine County Agricultural and Transportation Museum, Hanley Falls Minnisota

We are staying in Big Lake MN with my wife's cousin. We took a drive to Hanley Falls MN to the Yellow Medicine County Agricultural and Transportation Museum, which was built in an old school house and grounds. Here are a few photos of the two cylinder John Deere tractors at the museum. Tractors include a model H, model AR unstyled, model AR styled, model GP and model A with mounted cultivator.


Importing Tractors to Australia (Part 3)

The third tractor I searched for to import to Australia was an unstyled model B with round spoke wheels, which was a lot harder to find. I eventually found a 1935 model B in Dunlap Iowa from Larry Folk and Sons Antique Tractors. I arranged to store the model B at the Folks place until I arrived to pick up in person when in the USA.

The forth tractor was a 1952 styled AR which looks like a small model R tractor and were the last two cylinder tractors to be styled. the AR is a starndard tread configuation of the model A tractor. The model AR I found came from Manitoba Canada and was delivered to OK city while we were there. To my disappointment the tractor was not true to the sellers ad which stated “running”. Although it did run after cleaning dirty fuel/rust out of carbi and tow starting it. The starter motor had some kind of seed through it and was very rusty. On a positive note, the tractor came with an original operators manual. We had a bit of fun with this tractoras when it arrived at the Boultons, it came on the back of a truck with no ramps!, We took it to a local farm produce store and borrowed their loading ramp and then had their folk lift and driver tow start it. I then drove it on the main road for 2 miles back to the Boultons.
