TRACTORS

A 1926 12-20 Case Crossmotor owned by Claude Hutchings of Sulpher Springs Road, Sauquoit, New York 13456, who writes 'I found this tractor holding up a silo in a barnyard and it had been doing that job for some 35 years it was about 18 inches sunk into the ground.' Claude reports that the two year restoration was well  worth it, and comments on the uniqueness of the 12-20's design: 'The frame is one piece of cast iron. The crankshaft lays in the frame and the block sits on top of it.'

A photo of a 25-40 X Rumely Oil Pull, serial number 2083. The tractor belongs to Fred Bloom and Jim Geddert of Alpena, Michigan. The two collectors bought the tractor near Atlanta, Michigan in 1982 and spent five months restoring it. Bloom lives at 11457 Bell Bay, Alpena, Michigan 49707.
