Default DD Farm Spring Tractor Extravaganza

Today Several thousand people attended Dudley's first big open house at the DD Farm Museum in beautiful Roxbury, CT. I know there are quite a few big public and private collections[ Rollag, Dalton, Wataskwin etc.] around the world, I do not think any match what Dudley has put together up on Painter Hill. First off it was an absolutely perfect day with blue skies and big puffy clouds overhead. Dudley's crews had many tractors outside of the 4 big barns. The star of the day was the Kinard Haines Press Co. Flour City. I'm posting a bunch of pics that I took today which show many of his big tractors outside in the sun. I will say taking pictures inside the barns are difficult because of all the sunlight streaming in the windows at the top the walls. Hope you enjoy the Pics. Pic No 1 shows the star of the show a 1899-1900 Flour City which is the oldest gas tractor in the world. [I know this statement will bring out a lot of questions and rebuttals.] Pic No 2 A lineup of tractors inside one of four big barns. Pic No 3 is a 40-65 Reeves. Pic No 4 Another big Reeves Ed B

This is the last full set of pics. Pic No 1 Since my last visit Dudley has added several foreign tractors to his collection. A Lanz is in front with what is one of the earliest Fiats known in the back. Pic No 2 has I believe a Munktells in front and a early Bates Steel Mule in the background. Pic No 3 is a Yuba Ball Tread. Pic No 4 is a beautiful pic up the hill with 2 prairie giants framed by a big blue sky. Ed B

A wonderful day is nearly over and my last pic is of a Huber Return Flue Steamer. I believe this was one of the first big tractors purchased by Dudley nearly 30 years ago. It is the only big steamer he has and after this tractor he turned his main attention to Big Gas Prairie Tractors.
I would ad a disclaimer that the information here is what I believe to be true. If I made any mistakes I'm sure the Stakers will straighten me out. Ed B

Thanks for the pictures Ed. It looks like it was a great day to get the toys out for a drive. I am kind of partial to the Eagle. I was there several years ago but there has been a bunch of nice pieces added since then. Wish I could have been there! Wendell

Erik You know when I wrote that I thought I was wrong but just couldn't remember which German tractor it was. Thanks for the correction. Ed B

Ed, I hope you did´t think Munktell was a German tractor, it´s as Swedish as it can be. Well anyway, both you and me like and know Tracks better than Wheels.
Thanks
Erik

The red German tractor is a 1931 Hanomag Diesel. She had been in a car collection that came from Portugal and is on the list for some work. Thank you so much for posting these pictures, Ed. It was a big time.

It is indeed a Hanomag AR38 build from 1936 until 1942. A very nice and original one!

Thanks for the pictures. Beautiful collection. I guess you wouldn't know the serial number of the Avery RoTrak? Or where it came from?
Thanks!

I wondered about the RoTrak also, because it looks an AWFUL lot like one that used to come to the NTA show in Wauseon.
