Before coming to Brantford, Ontario, both Morris and Ingleton worked in western Canada, which in those earlier times meant Manitoba, or The Red River District. I think they worked independently on steam ploughing outfits. The Haggert Brothers from Brampton, Ontario also worked in Manitoba and built a 25 hp ploughing engine.
I suspect they were all ahead of the times, because steam ploughing really did not take hold until after the turn of the century. The heavy, purpose-built ploughing engines were really only in vogue for a handful of years until gasoline tractors took over in WW1.

This is a pic of Nick Foster's 75hp Montana Special. I got to operate this engine this past spring, as part of steam school in Mt. Pleasant. The picture doesn't do justice to the wide rear wheels.

Very nice video. The engine sounds great. It is good to see both operators with the proper attire for safety. Long sleeve shirts and long pants are a must for protection against steam leaks and hot boiler pipes.

When did J.I. Case open the branch house in Toronto?
Not sure? I saw that date a while back but can't recall where.
Perhaps some of the Case specialists on here who have catalogues can pin down when the Toronto branch house started showing up?
