The 45-65 Avery appeared for the first time at the 1976 Dresselville/Tyrone Thresher Show held on the Preuhs farm located 7 miles east of LeSueur. Here the Avery is powering a 36 x 60 steel Nichols & Shepard Red River Special thresher.
In 1997 the LSCPPA of LeSueur hosted the national MM collector summer convention. Here is a partial view of the over 450 tractors on display. In the background can be seen several large exhibit buildings.
