On the way to some ice, stopped to see this ...




... and saw this tucked in the corner of the dooryard.



A cool old Oliver dozer.

Snow's gone, mud season almost never was, and I've been keeping an eye out for backyard metal.



















Some lift rigs. 1950s? Pettibone and a '70s Lull with a chaindrive hoist.









Along with the obligatory Deere and a nice sturdy Oliver.





Whoa.

Too much?

I used to haul around a couple of those old pettibones, Dale. Those were serious death rigs. They ran, though. No extras, like brakes, though. ;-)

I've been seeing some really nice old tractors in my travels lately. I'll make a point of keeping a camera with me in the future.

NH is rife with them.

GhoulweJ, that Farmall is pimped!
We've also got a couple 8N's around here, show up at the usual fairs - sturdy little fellas.

Skully! The guy with Pettibone and Lull says the last owner of the Petti used it to move cars around a junkyard - that kinda cantilever action up high on a 4-wheel turning rig sounds skeeeetchy.

Brandon-, the potential for ending up in a ditch rubbernecking for old rigs is about the same as eyeballing for ice flows early season. Be careful and post yer pics.

There is a Pop Laval photo I've always liked of Henry Ford in Fresno in 1916, visiting J.C. Forkner.
