Hi all, as mentioned in another topic I visited the local harvest-show in Onstwedde again. I brought my mini International 1468 with me and got set up at around 9 in the morning. Gates opened at 10. It was a bit overcast and wet at the beginning but it turned out to be a nice and sunny day for the most part. @Pullstart requested some show pictures so here ya' go All set up, waiting for the folks to come in and say Hi. This 1/3rd scale stationary thresher is built by my dads grandpa (who has passed away) and is now owned by my dad's uncle. He tours the country with it and displays it on several shows. It actually works and my dad's grandpa used it to harvest beans. The steam tractor that powers it is not my dad's uncle's but happened to be there aswell so they thought let's see if the tractor can power the thresher. Worked flawlessly. Besides the small tresher there's always a real one setup aswell. They thresh grain and bale the straw with the attached baler. Powered by a flat belt off a vintage Hanomag tractor. Threshing machine, Dutch built out of the province of Groningen. Straw baler. The bales are manually tied and knotten. This apparatus was placed before the thresher. Not 100 percent sure what it does but it seemed it gets rid of excess chaff and other unwanted debris. Who can guess what these are and/or what they're used for? Vintage DAF truck. Dutch truck brand. This one was very nicely restored. And another one, this one obviously for military use. Note the second axle which is free rolling. This helped it conquer dunes and tranches in rough conditions. My granddad used to operate one of these. Also no big center differential on the back axles but driveshafts coming directly from the main gearbox. The shock is the rear of the vehicle. I guess they went this route for maximum ground clearance and articulation.
For a few years I've been on the hunt for a nice Snowco trailer. In CT they seem to be few and far between. I've looked at a handful all of which were more rotted than I wanted to get involved with. My patience and persistence finally paid off. I picked up this super solid model 954 yesterday. It's missing the original air dam but is otherwise complete. I was told that the rarest of the Snowcos were the Allis Chalmers version, which were yellow. Unfortunately, the ID tag on mine is missing, but based on the underneath it seems pretty clear that the original color was Allis yellow. Who else has a Snowco? Let's see some pics. Original brochure This was the only Craigslist pic and it was listed just as "Trailer". I immediately knew from the tongue that it was a Snowco. Pure luck.
