Since I was thinking about tractors again I thought I might as well post a few more photos of what I found in the parking ramp.


Here is a little crawler called a Bear Crawler. Not the best photos of it.

Here are a couple of tractors that were sitting side by side. One was called a Lion tractor and the other the Big Bull 12-20. If I understand the signs correctly, they both were designed by D.M. Hartsough.



There is some interesting info about the Lion tractor company here

I was fortunate enough to see all these tractors plus more when they lived in the buildings at Oscars back in 97. Seems stupid to be in a parking garage. Be that as it may, I'm wondering what is stopping people from vandalizing or stealing bits off them? Mags oilers etc.

I expect that some time in the not far distant future those displays will become unwanted by a new manager and be changed to some other theme. And like the Ford museum and many others these units will be removed and disposed of some way. Just watch and keep it in mind as it will happen.
I agree, especially once the vandalism and theft begins to seriously detract from the displays as MattL eluded too.

I dislike a bunch of old whiners engaging in endless gnashing of teeth, rending of garments & wailing over something they will never change. It's mostly jealousy anyway, money talks, bullshit walks. At least the tractors didn't go to scrap...As I've said before in this thread, come up with the money to buy them if you don't like it, otherwise, knock off the bitching. Waste of breath & bandwidth.
End of my rant.

I do thank BigGoomba for posting pics, even if it does give you old farts a case of the vapors...

Lucky, most of these tractors are fairly protected. Any of the the tractors in the glass cases should be safe from vandalism and theft for the most part. The tractors in the parking garage are less protected because you can get right next to them. There is a fairly noticeable security presence. All access points have video surveillance and security does walk the building on occasion. I donít think valdalism will be a huge deal here either but I do think there may be some opportunity for theft. Smaller easily removable stuff is at risk.

On a positive note - Boise is in a desert and is very dry. That should help avoid some deterioration due to moisture.

I canít pretend to guess where they will be in 10 years, I think at worst they will be dirty and probably filled with yellowjackets - maybe a bird or two.

I just wish I could have gotten the opportunity to see some of these run. There is some cool stuff here. But that boat has sailed. I will have to ask around on here and see if there are shows where I can see ones that other collectors have running.

Well one thing about it, they will be around for future generations to tinker with should the time come that the jump organization disbands , etc. Better there than a hedgerow, shame that they cant be exercised, I can see both sides of the fence from here. I do wish they were closer to home, but there are many fantastic pieces throughout the world I will never see in person, unfortunately, and that's only my fault, nobody elses'.

I would like to reach out to Smokestak users to show what has happened to the rest of the Oscar Cooke collection that J.R. Simplot had purchased. Trying to find a thread to comment on I came across Big Goomba from Meridian Idaho. I cannot believe I did not meet him when he was here. My name is Rob B. I am the curator here at JUMP. I put off my restoration business to take care of the 110 tractors we have. The first thing I did when I got here was lube everything that turned over and assess what could run at some point in time. Then it had been almost four years of constant research trying to find out exactly what we have. I did have some time to get one running. Google search ď1919 Avery cultivatorĒ (I know itís older now) and you can hear it running. I have cages around them now since Goomba has been here and all the park tractors (11) are getting glass boxes to keep people off and the parts intact. I saw what happened to Travel Town within Griffith Park in Los Angeles and it broke my heart. Rest assured that I am doing everything within my means to protect and preserve all the national treasures here at JUMP. I have been doing this since my dad let me push the lawn mower to the neighborís yard and over the course of some 50 years I have had a grand time with machines and the good people who own and operate them. I came on to Smokestak three years ago and after being forewarned about the feelings that the people have about this collection I have been well reserved on commenting. I do feel disappointed and saddened by a lot of the comments about the collection but people being who they are I guess itís to be expected. There is a bright continuance to this story, this is what I have done with the rest of rest of Oscarís tractors.

Enjoy,
Rob jumpboise.org
Thanks Scott & Maggie

Bob, thanks for posting that, it lays to rest a lot of apprehension as to the intention of the project. I knew Oscar and had visited the collection before his passing. I do believe Mr. Simplot had good intentions in mind when he started this collection, glad to see that someone in charge is taking care of these units.

Rob B.,
What arrangements need to be made for viewing the collection?
Also, I have former ownership information on the Eagle Model H tractor which I sent to another party at Jump. If you need this, please let me know.
Best wishes with your projects.

rob, thanks for the update. happy to hear that and we were planning on a trip to glacial national park next summer so may have to jump over to jump.... a question that I would have and am serious....is it possible when there is a tractor feature or expo at a threshing show, to request one of the JUMP tractors to be shown, or displayed at one of the shows around? great banner to display and showcase JUMP, and help other shows bring in a crowd to see what the buzz is all about..

I think all the tractors are now viewable too. Not all of them have glass yet so you are looking through fencing.

I don’t need the ownership information but if there is a story about the tractor, I would love to hear it. I wished I could know the history of a lot of these tractors. At one point or another they all played an important role in someone’s life - I love they story behind a tractor
I feel dumb, I guess I should pay better attention to the conversation - I got an email notification where G Willikers asked about special arrangements and didnt read up the thread to see Robs post. Sorry about that.

Rob, I had no idea that there were that many other tractors. I hope to be able to visit that collection too. I drive and walk by the Jump facility every day - and given that the traffic stinks lately - spend a fair amount of time creeping by slowly in my car looking at the stuff on the south side in the mornings.

Was happy when they opened up the court yard area so I could get in to see the few remaining tractors there.

If you ever see a fat bearded guy wearing shorts walking around (even when everyone else has switched to pants for winter) with a 'not completely there' look in his eyes - thats probably me I talk a walk almost every day so maybe I will see you around.
