What about the earlier big girls, the 4 cylinder 40-60 an such! Now whose keeping that one secret? There has to be one in Minnesota or the Dakotas?

Rick/Kevin- Ive been told about a basket case model D, serial number 275 though I don't have a picture of it and am sworn not to say anymore about it. There is a rumor about a second model out there now also. These things have a way of turning up as the values continue to climb.

@lawrence
I try my best to keep the tractor for myself.The tractor is on my yard until it runs and i am still waiting for the magneto but some minor parts are missing
(bonnet for the crankshaft and for the gears.Heard the eagle from Micheal Kendall running in Onslow park and i like the sound so much!Unbelieveable.
Regards George

There seem to be a surprising number of surviving Eagles considering how few were made. Will likely have my 20-40 running tomorrow
All the best,
Rick.
Rick: "Running tomorrow" , does that mean that Christmas has come early to the Mannen household? I can think of only one reason you would have your Eagle running at such a blustery time of the year. That Eagle is a Good, Solid, Machine .

After I did the Eagle book, I came across some scetchy info that they made some of the lighter models with a four cylinder in line motor Anyone hear anything about this? I am doing some redecorating in the house and have a lot of those notes packed away right now - but I will do some digging. An 8-16 would be a sweetheart to find and listen to. Even better if it were in Lynden, Ontario, Canuckland
Robert - never got my Eagle going the other day after all. It was just too damn cold in the shed and with howling winds, I was leary about opening the big doors. She is loaded up with antifreeze and ready to go - will it get colder than -55 this winter?
Rick.

Lightbulb Re: Eagle Tractors

This eagle finally landed in the shop. dads only had it for 40 years Maybe it will be running by spring. that rads not right but dad wants to adapt in on there needs one crank bearing done, and the carb put on. and lots of cleaning and loosening up. so i guess we'll see how it goes this winter. Rick proably knows the details on it i forget the serial # alreay. 13-25hp H

Colin - Your Eagle should be serial #1636 Beyond that, I don't know much more except there were a fair # of 13-25s in that serial # range in your area. Waterloo Manuf must have shipped a few flat car loads into Regina? I wonder if your's came out of Sakatchewan as there were several more around within a few #s? 'Bout time you guys got that baby in the shop
Rick.

yup 1636 is it how many 25s are left now days. these eagles look like pretty well built tractors for there time. what yr is this one exactly. i dont think ive ever heard one run before. i guess i never payed any attention to the 11 hp at austin. im not sure if it even ran there in the last few years. where would the closest 25 be to us, is there any in manitoba?
