Your welcome.

I've been meaning to post some of these when is slow on here to give others something to look at.

Not a big collection but there are some seldom seen items.

I thought I might get a comment from moderator Craig. Or did he pass out from visual overload?

Had a call a week or so back from a friend. He was talking about someone he knows, in the US Midwest I believe, who is trying to resurrect what sounds like a pre John Deere model 'D' that Waterloo Boy was working on. I think the remains were found buried?
There might have been something written up on this project in a JD magazine some time back? So? Is there any information out there on Waterloo Boy tring to develop a next generation tractor just before they were taken over by JD?
Very interesting if they were.
Thanx,
RM.

As I understand it Waterloo was developing what eventually became the John Deere D. Before Deere bought them out in 1918 they had a few prototypes built that they called the "bathtub" tractor. They called it this because the crank case / transmission case looked like a bathtub.

Sometime in the 90's maybe there was construction work being done in the Moline area and the remains of a carcass of one of these early bathtub tractors was found buried. I believe a man in Ohio has been working to restore it over the past several years.

I have seen pictures but I can't remember where. I know there was an article in Two Cylinder that showed the tractor coming out of the ground after all those years.

I only got this one shot of it myself at gathering of the green since there was a session going on. It was unearthed at the old tractor works site in waterloo in 92 and was built in 1917.

metal4130: Lots of interesting info in that thread

Tom: Here is a vid of the Sycamore Dain running this summer, its the other survivor besides the one talked about in that article.

Thanks guys for all the information. That is very interesting. I wonder if there are any vintage photos of those experimentals working?
Thanks also to Tom for starting this thread way back when with the early WB tractor pictures. I think that was before Stak had the "thank's button" feature!??!
