Thought I would try this and see how many different manufactures of steam rollers that were really out there. Not just traction type conversions but all types. I've included the easy ones! Case and Baker. Andy will have to help me with the owner of the Case as it was taken at Rushville 2007. The Baker has Arthur S. Langenderfer Inc. on the canopy. Anyone know where this engine is?...Brad

We have a Buffalo-Springfield donated by Washington Corp at our depot downtown. She looks in good condition and is behind a stout fence.

This is what happens when you post your photos off site at short term services.

Here is a kelley springfield at Preston's for sale in the UK. This was imported just this month and pictured on the Old Glory website. I sure wish i had a chance at this one. I know where it is now, but I would like to know where it came from.

Its been mentioned before, but this seems a good place to put in another plug for "Classic American Steamrollers" By Raymond L Drake and Dr Robert T Rhode. ISBN 1-58388-038-0 This I would say is the definitive work: Acme to Waterous. Heavily illustrated and well documented. Paper back with nice quality gloss pages and good clear images.

Hello All,

Attached are pics of BUFFALO-SPRINGFIELD roller, serial number 12624. These were taken the Sycamore show in 2006. The roller is owned by Neilan Fruit of Kirkland, IL. As I understand it, at one time this roller was owned by BannerBoy’s grandpa, Al New.

Happy New Year,

Ron

I have put pictures of a Iroquois 8 ton on the Buffalo Springfield thread. I am hoping to get it out this spring. Neat little machine, needs some work to get it going. Someday. For some reason it wil not let me post them here.

Hello All,

In line with Cody’s post, attached is a pic of HUBER roller serial number 11508. I believe that this machine is owned by the Antique Steam and Gas Engine Club as it does reside at their show grounds in Boonville, IN. Presently it is a work in progress.

Am sure that the KAY GEE BEE can add more to the above as to its history, etc.

Ron

I quit stirring the milk and the cream came to the top! :O It was a Buffalo Springfield roller, I do believe.

Brad,

Here's Rol using his Buffalo Springfield roller over at the elevator rolling the base of a new 2-3 million bushel round pile.



Here's another picture of Kramer's Case Roller with the bright green jacket taken this year at Greenville.



I think, and Philip can verify, that Langederfer's Baker roller went to the Sauder's Museum in Archbold, OH. There is one there, but I haven't looked at it in a decade ...or so....:eek:

Speaking of Case Rollers, who owned the Case roller at Pinckneyville this year?

In amongst the pile of "seemed to be a good idea to buy it at the time" items in my collection is a 10-ton Buffalo Springfield roller (Kelly-Springfield type with sold disk flywheel) that was probably the last steam roller located in the state of Mississippi. Anyone know where I could get a boiler for it? The old boiler's TOAST! :bonk:

Thanks for starting the thread, I've always thought steamrollers were COOL!!!!! :D

Thanks,
Mike

Jeff,
Came from Sonny Hamilton, of Petal, MS. Do you remember seeing it there at his place?
