Tuesday Torque: Prairie Tractors At Rollag

 These beasts turned a lot of ground and threshed a lot of wheat. It's well worth the trip to see these machines in person.

Sometimes I speed up to get past the boring parts. Not this time.
I'm especially glad that I kept on eye on the tractors or I would have missed the Red Devil with the single drive wheel. I never saw one of those, nor heard of one.

And I was glad that film time was spent on how to get them started. Except for the first one where any kickback would have caused that bar, well, give somebody a bad day.

I know that the early Cat tractors had gasoline starter pony engines, but I had not realized that principle was used on these big tractors.

Excellent quality video.

When I see anyone barring an engine over, I make sure that I am not in line! Belts are dangerous, too.
