1936 H.K.HUBER

| October/November 1988


My H. K. Huber, Serial #11830, was manufactured in March 1936.

4617 Ithaca Road Horseheads, New York 14845

Originally sold by an agency in Rochester, New York, it spent its working life in Yates County New York powering a 28 x 46 Red River Special Thresher. Sometimes it was used to power a saw mill in winter. It never did field work like plowing or dragging. The tractor did the threshing on a commercial scale for about 25 years.

It was then stored in a building for another 25 years. I bought it and the Red River Special a couple of years ago. I painted it and added the decals and added the cab. The governor has had new bearings somewhere along the way. The engine has never been torn down. It is a Waukesha gas-kerosene engine. It usually starts on the third pull of the crank. I am the present owner and restorer.
