Here's the pics I took of the Wheel Horses at the LeSeuer show, I forgot the camera the next two days so I missed some of people, as well as the rest of the show. Have to be better about that next year. Some recognizable Red Square presence at the show... joebob, mikewilliams, ole550, stevesarus's 502 (didn't get a pic of Steve) and Dale's NOS plow that's still for sale. Made a lot of contacts with local people again this year and should have an even better turn out next year.

Thanks guys... It really was a great weekend. We had a good turnout and representation of models from 1956 - the late 80s (520H Maroon stripe) Even quite a few of the lesser seen more collectible models. An RJ-35, a 701, a 502, a 62 Lawn Ranger (that even has the service replacement fuel tank), a pair of 603s, a 1045 and a 500 Special just to name a few. Lots of other great models as you can see.

Looking forward to next year already!

Lovely photos :woohoo:

Is the WH in the last two shots a Suburban? I'd kill for one of those! They're so pretty. Practically no chance of finding one over this side of the pond though I fear :D

That last tractor is a 1958 RJ-58. I think the trans in it is from a 1960 Suburban though as the RJ didn't have the holes in the side plates for the accessory tow hitch.

    • 2016 LeSueuer Pioneer Power Show, Le Sueuer, MN
      By CasualObserver-(Super Mod)
      I've just heard this morning that the Le Sueur show that some of our  members have attended for several years is going to host the MN Cockshutt collectors which I'm guessing is a small group because they also want to do a shared main feature of Wheel Horse and other brands of GT feature next year. Show dates are Aug 26-28, 2016.  We are getting first crack at promotion since we've had a Wheel Horse presence at this show for a while now. Our group, the North Central Wheel Horse Events Club (NCWHEC) has been going to this show since 2008. We were initially added to the show in 2008 as a feature and almost not invited back due to some miscommunication and misunderstandings about expectations and show operation. This show does not allow a general swap meet at the summer show. They hold a separate annual swap meet in the spring with about 1500 vendors that take up the entire showgrounds and even a lot of area used for parking during the summer show.  However, when you're the feature, vendors who have non-swap items are allowed to have booths... such as decals, new reproduction parts, other novelties and memorabilia type stuff. Just no used part swap meet type stuff. Being the shared feature, there will also be use of half of a 60x130 feature building for anyone who might want to set up there with displays that they want to keep out of any potential weather.

      Anyway, I'm posting this out here nice and early to see if anyone has an interest in coming out the Minnesota way in 2016.  Lots of time to work out details and questions. Just wanted to throw this up nice and early to avoid some conflicts with other shows that are usually around that time. I know we got Lane a pretty good turnout a couple years ago when he asked for representation at an IL show... I'm hoping that with enough advance notice and planning we can really get a great turnout.

      Getting to be that time of year again. Who's thinking about going to Pioneer Power this year?   @joebob @prondzy @Shynon @wheelhorseman1000 @stevasaurus @ol550 @rydogg @Terry M @dclarke @Martin @Operator

      Show dates this year are August 28-30, at the usual Le Sueur Pioneer Power showgrounds. If there are any new comers this year, I've got some picture maps that have helped some other newbies find our little Wheel Horse gathering at this incredibly large show. 

      I'm planning to be there all three days.  Anyone interested in coming is welcome, they don't charge exhibitors at the gate. As I understand it there will again be an opportunity to drop a plow in the ground if you're so inclined. Also keep in mind there is a consignment auction on the grounds first thing Friday morning as well, so if you like auctions (and who doesn't  ) make sure you're there plenty early to scope it out! If you have any questions about this show, please post them up. This will be our 8th year showing horses here at Le Sueur. Primitive camping is available on site, there is a charge for campers / camping trailers. Any questions about attending, please ask.

      Great year again at Pioneer Power... The big show's double features were "Classic Tractors" meaning anything made before 1970, and "Vintage Snowmobiles".  I thought the turnout for regular tractors/gas engines was a little weak, perhaps due to no specific brand feature. The snowmobiles however filled the feature building and they had to find space for the overflow in adjacent buildings.  I think I heard they were expecting 125, and by Friday morning there were already 160 with more showing up all day.
      The Wheel Horse turnout was pretty good.  I never took an actual count, and we were definitely down a few from other years, but we still had a strong showing.

      It's been interesting to watch how our presence at the show these last 7 years has begun to really draw out other Garden Tractor exhibitors. 
      There were a few Wheel Horse items on the auction... none of which came home with club members.  Not that prices were unreasonable... just no one felt the need to own them.  Reportedly the D-250 brough $650.  Supposedly ran and drove in (don't they all, right?), didn't start at auction.
      Lawn Ranger brought short money, but no one was particularly interested in it.  

      Likewise with the little dump cart.

      A few faces....


      TerryM (and son Andrew)

      prondzy (and wife/daughter) and shynon

          Rest of show pics... good turnout of horses and attachments.  A few others mixed in here.
    • Pioneer Power Show, LeSueur, MN Aug 22-24
      By CasualObserver-(Super Mod)
      30 days now until the LeSueur, MN Pioneer Power Show. Just wanted to pop this up on people's radars. This will our 7th year showing Wheel Horses at this show.
      Got to meet several members who made the trip for the first time last year, looking forward to seeing any of them back as well as catching up with all the regulars.  As always... hoping for new faces as well.  The Pioneer Power club has been very receptive to us showing Wheel Horses at their show, in fact, it's brought about a whole new contingent of garden tractor exhibitors outside the realm of the regular hit and miss gas engine crowd.  All in all, it's been fun to be a part of growing a little bit of this show.

      Last year I posted the following info which some people said was quite helpful, so I'll include it here again.
      You can get official information and  showground map off the website but that doesn't really show what you guys need to know.  It's best to get in at the Alternate gate, in the parking lot.  Go in , turn left and go about 100 feet.  That's where we set up.  Fill in along the building first, and then across the lane as needed.  We're supposed to have the whole area, but some other brands often end up filling in across the street too.
      First, here's the location of the show grounds, just off Hwy 26 between LeSueur and Montgomery on 265th Ave, just a few miles north of LeCenter.  (Click images for larger versions)
      GPS address  34605 265th Ave, Le Sueur, Mn

      And here's the actual grounds.....One thing to remember, as you look at this map, North is to the left, East is up.

      Looking forward to another great show.  Don't forget your lawn chairs!!

      I think it is time to post about this great show in Minnesota, LeSueur. Always a good time...and yes, we are planning on staying an extra day to play golf on Monday. If someone wants to ride around the golf course, but not play, I am looking for a good caddy. WHO'S YOUR CADDY?? :)
