The Beast

Here are some pictures of my 1919 6 HP Novo and cement mixer that were taken at the Antique Farm Engine & Tractor Association's Show at Roy, Washington in July.

The Novo has serial number #79921. I believe it was once owned by King County.

As you can see, it isn't pretty. I dub it 'The Beast.' All the men in the picture are about six feet tall so you can get an idea of the size of the mixer. Everything is totally unrestored and the cement mixer even has old cement stuck on it. Even so, it seemed to draw a lot of attention at the event. And the more it smoked, the more people came to see it perform.
