As this year's 2015 National Gathering of Graham-Bradley and Sears Sold Farm Tractors closes in under 2 months to go I thought I should remind everyone to please make plans to attend! This year we will be featured at The Badger Steam and Gas Engine Show in Baraboo, WI on August 21-23, 2015. We are working extra hard to bring together the largest number of Graham-Bradley standard models (503.104) ever assembled, so if you have one of these fine rare machines we sure hope you will bring it to have on display!...running or not, painted or rusty! We look forward to seeing you all there! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me!

Just wanted to put in one last plug for this year's 2015 National Gathering of Graham-Bradley and Sears Sold Farm Tractors Show which will be held at The Badger Steam and Gas Engine Show in Baraboo, WI this week August 21-23. If you go please stop by our feature tent and say hello!

Below are a few pics from last year's 2014 gathering in Kalamazoo, MI. We had a total of 43 featured tractors, 24 Graham-Bradleys, 14 Sears Economys, and 5 Bradleys.

Hope to see you there!

Will post some pics of our stop by the Bradley & Parrett tractor factory in Benton Harbor, MI a little later. Those of us with our 5 Bradleys stopped there for a photo op on the way to Kalamazoo last year before the show.

As I had briefly mentioned earlier, a handful of us Bradley tractor owners had gotten permission from the current owner of the old Ross Carrier factory to unload our tractors for a photo op. This took place last year (June 26, 2014) on our way to our "National Graham-Bradley and Sears Sold Farm Tractors Show" in Kalamazoo, MI. The old Ross Carrier factory is located in downtown Benton Harbor, MI and was where Dent Parrett engineered and built the Bradley GP tractor along with the 3-wheeled, rubber tired Parrett tractors from the 30's. The factory building has had some recent work done to it to fix a roof that was in need of much repair. Now it appears to be in relatively decent shape. Knowing that this photo op would probably be a once in a lifetime opportunity, I decided to contact Tom Parrett who lives in New York to see if he would be willing to attend. Tom is the grandson of Dent. He gladly flew in for the event.

The first picture is of Tom sitting on our tractor next to my wife and I in front of the factory.

The second picture is of the 5 Bradley GP tractors and 1 Parrett #6 tractor that were present for the photo op.

The third picture is of my Bradley sitting in front of the door that it would have rolled out of 84 years ago!

P.S. You may have seen some of these pictures in the Antique Power last year in an article Chad Elmore did.

He mentioned to us at Tipton that he needed to switch tractors on the back of the trailer so he can take the one that was on there to Alaska.

Thanks! It was a great show! Two years ago at the show in Penfield, Illinois we actually had 8 or 9 more a Graham-Bradleys there than at Pinckneyville and we also had including Sears Economys, believe it or not over twice as many featured tractors as we did this year than in 2016. It all depends on the location of our show and who all turns out LoL!

Hello Everyone! I know it's much earlier this year for my yearly reminder of our upcoming "National Graham-Bradley & Sears Sold Farm Tractors Show", but instead of 2 weeks notice, I thought 2 months would be much more appropriate. Hopefully not everyone has their summer plans all made and can find room to slip this show in their schedule! This year it will be held in Winamac, IN @ The Northern Indiana Power From The Past Show July 18-21, 2019. Please make plans to attend and bring out your Graham-Bradley, Sears Economy, Bradley, or Thrifty Farmer! And if you don't own one and just want to see more of these low production tractors all in one place at one time than you'll find anywhere else, then come out for that too! This year will be our 14th annual club show.

The show's website is: www.winamacpowershow.com/events/summer-show

If you're interested in coming and are looking for a hotel, please contact me and I can get you hooked up with our block of rooms we have set up.

Below are a few pictures from last year's national show that was held in Pinckneyville, IL.

Thanks for the notice of all the Sears and other tractors sold by Sears shows. I see some of the tractors at other shows, Because of John Baum and his trailer load of Sears tractors. He attends lots of other shows, both in the north and south. I would like to visit his farm in Wisconsin to see all of his tractors. I am from Wis. and visit family there, witch is about 75 miles from where John lives. Roger Weinhold AKA Charlie 1925 Witch is a 1925 Allis Chalmers model ' L '
