Last weekend we took the Big 4 tractor to the Little Log House Antique Power Show near Hastings, Minnesota. We took pictures of our tractor alongside the Big 4 tractor owned by Steve Bauer. We also got a picture with Steve Bauer and the niece of Morris Blomgren who had owned the tractor before us.

I was at that show on Saturday and took a few minutes to admire the Big 4, all I can say is that pictures don't do it justice - when you can actually walk around it and have a good look at everything it's apparent how much effort went into its restoration. Again, excellent job.

We have the Big 4 tractor at WMSTR (Rollag) for the show this weekend. The 1915 Emerson Brantingham Big 4 tractor owned by Steve Bauer is also there. We are looking forward to a great time visiting with everyone that can come to this great show.

Our daughter in law and son gave us this for Christmas! We had quite the year with the Big 4 tractor.

It had somewhat of an attitude that day. Didn't want to be on a Facebook page for a radio program.

At the age it is, I suppose it can be forgiven for being a little cantankerous.
