I saw soooo many GT's today that I would've liked to have taken home with me but...they were someone else's:angry-nono:

I love to see this hobby thriving though...

Dan let Caleb (my son) also drive his Rat Rod---caleb couldn't stop talking about that!  He was too light to get it to pull a wheelie by blipping the throttle though.  Boy--that thing sounds sooo cool:auto-layrubber:

It is quite the show and I was impressed about the number of GT's there. Also was everything else there one could ask for...log sawing, threshing, pulling, rock crushing etc as well as some nice working stationary displays. Cindy and I both agreed (that doesn't happen often!) on the calendar for next year! I should have stayed longer but admit I  was anxious to get my new to me 753 home for a look over. Will get up afew of what little pics I got when near some wifi.

Burnett had the largest assembly of PK's I have ever personally seen in one place.  I took video of them but realized when I got home that I didn't take any oics with my phone.  It was a really cool display with a bunch of attachments.  Hopefully Dan or Jim snagged a few pics...

Like Josh said there were a lot of Economy's, PK's & Red E's there. The reunion for these is held at this show every year. In fact they have their own permanent building on the grounds.

On Fri. I helped my friend Willie set up his saw mill & then we got his 36hp Frick steam engine fired up to cut some lumber. Leveling the mill is quite time consuming.DSCN1717-min.JPG.8b0d3228005fd82ce2e358e4c37295c0.JPG

 

After sawing for a while Willie decided that he wanted to hook up to the rock crusher for a while. Here I'm using my 3500lb tractor to position his 8500lb engine and get the belt lined up.IMG_20170804_141708681-min.jpg.40ea513f2a27583e2cecd6550a29d545.jpg

 

The 36hp Frick had no issues running the rock crusher.IMG_20170804_144142501-min.jpg.b25df4ee819cdfcb3c089d25d4f4be6c.jpg

 

This 1930's Oshkosh truck with a Waukesha power unit mounted on the back also took a turn at running the crusher.

This is an Allis Chalmers steam powered generator. This generator once ran the Monarch appliance factory in Beaver Dam WI.

There were a lot of hit miss engines as well as other small engine displays.

With mowers to boat motors as well as advertising, this Reo display was quite impressive.DSCN1741-min.JPG.ca211d201c06a79bf4e76a37a21581e4.JPG

 

For odd balls & customs I found this Scatmobile.

I also like this custom Farmall M? Well the hood may have been from an M.DSCN1742-min.JPG.dbe5202b6b3e2836cdca2ef4b5856809.JPG

 

For those who are into plowing, this may be the wrong color but the home made trailer plow was very cool & well done.DSCN1724-min.JPG.f21879f62a604e35a356012278ea9ae7.JPG

 

The feature tractors at this show were Ford & farm equipment that was sold by Sears. This Graham-Bradey was an item once sold by Sears.DSCN1732-min.JPG.3edfef80dc3e66c001902b7c630bac24.JPG

 

It was great hanging with @WHX11 & Cindy for a while. I also had a great time with @PeacemakerJack and his great children. Caleb definitely has the tractor bug for sure. My favorite part of going to tractor shows is seeing friends (new & old). 

I had 1 casualty at this show, my Rat Rod is currently in sick bay. I'll start a post on it when I find the problem.

:text-coolphotos:            Looks like a great show. The Graham-Bradley is one I had never seen; very highly styled. Wonder if there was any connection to the Graham Automobile, they too had a unique style too.

Thanks for sharing the pictures and information.

I went to a show a few years ago that featured Sears products. There was a Graham auto on display at that show. I'll look tonight for some pics.

We got an old guy with a HEAVY European accent with a Lawn Ranger with a diesel at our steam pageant every year. He tows his wife around on a sulky. He absolutely flies on that thing and she has to hold on for dear life!  :)

Excellent pictures you guys...thanks for sharing those. :)  Looks like Jim changed his handle...I think that means he is keeping the 753.  I kind of knew he would keep this one.  :occasion-xmas:

Here's some info on Graham-Bradley from Wikipedia ...

 

Graham-Bradley model 103 tractorThe Graham-Bradley tractor was built by the Graham-Paige Motors Corporation of Detroit in Michigan, just prior to World War II. The tractors were sold by Sears-Roebuck, which owned the Bradley factory and built implements. The tractors were advertised as "built by Graham, Equipped by Bradley, Guaranteed by Sears". One basic model was offered in both standard and row-crop configurations. Production lasted only two years and Graham switched to wartime production. Graham became Kaiser Motors after the war, acquiring and becoming Jeep before selling to AMC.

 
So there in the Wheel Horse family tree :) .
 
Again guys thanks for the great pics !

I think you need to get everything out into your yard and get a drone photo of it all. That would be impressive! :bow-blue:
