TRACTORS:

1953 International Farmall H as purchased in Iowa in October 2000.  The trailer that was rented for the job was too narrow to allow for proper loading.  We hauled it this way for 40 miles until we found a home improvement store.  We purchased ~900 pounds of concrete landscape blocks and used it as ballast on the front of the trailer.  Hauled the last 140 miles without any problems.

Moving some of the 40 inches of snow that we received in December 2000.  The Blade was included, but needed some modification to connect to the loader brackets.

1939 Allis Chalmers B - on Trailer May 11, 2001.  Loaded the Tractor just before the sun set.  Photos are a little on the dark side.  The haul home (~70 miles) was uneventful with my new trailer.
