It’s been awhile since I’ve featured steam tractors on this site, and I thought it might be a good way to introduce everyone to the new website design. Whaddya think?
The video, above, was taken in 2009 at my own Boulder County’s antique farm show. The 1907 steam engine has 22 horsepower and it performed threshing and plowing back in its heyday. It also ran a sawmill, pulled a scarifier for state road work, and provided steam for a chemical company near Valmont Butte. It was last used to thresh wheat in 1976. The video, above, shows this steam traction engine running a threshing separator.
This above video from 2009 shows a steam engine tractor pull.
