Default Emerson-Brantingham Feature

Just putting a shout out for Emerson-Brantingham enthusiasts -- This will be the feature at Rollag in 2017!!!! I thought that we all might need a few years to get ready for this one. When Gary and I put on the Avery feature in 2011, we only gave ourselves 2 years to get our own projects done. Many exhibitors also were in our shoes and tried to get as much done on their tractors by show time. We are hoping to have 9 or 10 Big 4 30s for the feature. Many are in shops across the country in various stages of their restoration. Let me know if you would be willing to bring your equipment to our feature! Peerless steam engines are being included in this feature. Also Gas Traction. Any Emerson-Brantingham equipment welcome!

Sharon and Gary. There are enuf of the smaller EB tractors, either done or in the works, that the number should at least equal the number of Big 4's by that time. Can think of about 20 of the 12-20 EB's out there within a few states of Minnesota. Sounds like a great time for an EB reunion of sorts.

Yes Kent, there are enough 12-20s around but we will take whatever numbers in any model that we can get. This is going to be a fun feature!

At the moment there is no feature for 15... No one has stepped up to chair anything. 14 is construction and 16 is Minneapolis-Moline.

You might consider inviting Reeves steam engines and tractors Their sale to E-B transpired on 1-1-1912, just like Geiser Peerless.

An E-B tractor that should be invited is this 1916 Model L, three wheeler from Arlee, Montana, owned by Dennis Black. It beat out a couple hundred other tractors for top honors, at an Iowa tractor show several years ago. Gary

The EB L 3 wheeler pictured above, is now in Ken Eder's collection. Here are a couple other 12-20's, an AA and a Q, that should make it to Rollag. That's the plan.

If someone ever make a radiator to an AA. Please remember me, and make two (2).
Just recall the Swedish guy on Smokstak, and you find me here.

I will not bring it to ROLLAG, but might meet up. I'd like to.

Kent,
Obviously I don't travel the 200 miles to Arlee, MT anymore! The egg is on my face.

I guess the the point I was trying to make, not only was Geiser Peerless sold to Emerson-Brantingham on January first 1912, so was Reeves & Company. I know this is Lugs & Cleats and steam isn't supposed to lurk here, but "the tail goes with the hide," my dad used to say.....

1. E-B Peerless smokebox door. 2. E-B Reeves smokebox door taken of me AT ROLLAG in 2005. 3. E-B Reeves water tank head. 4. The 25hp Reeves engine of the Danielson Family... It is "Pre" E-B, so technically doesn't count! Even if it is there every year. Gary

I know this thread is about tractors but ?

That won't include JI Case, who bought haying and cultivation implements from E-B in (??) 1928, will it?

Chuck Wendel included Reeves and Peerless in his 150 Years of JI Case book. Reeves was folded and plant burned down by 1925. Reeves & Case were sort of adopted step sisters by default. Gary

Didn't the family have a estate liquidation sale a few years back? I know he was collecting anything from EB. and had set up a nice museum dedicated to that. F.J.W.

I won't go that far into it but if people bring JI Case equipment to display we will not turn them away.

I don't know of one a few years back, but they had one this summer for what was not part of the museum collection. I had totally missed out on it; I believe his L is still part of the museum collection, but the second E-B he had picked up a year or two ago, 12-20 IIRC? was sold at the sale as it had not been transferred over to the museum yet.

What Paul said. The Paulson Agriculture Museum is still alive and well. A good place to visit . Especially if you like EB or Rockford related ag history. The AA was sold off in the estate auction and resides in southern Wis.
