last night I had purchased a water wagon at Defiance, Ohio to match for my Greyhound outfit. Finally got one!
I was told it was delivered from Banting Mfg Company from a major supply catalog.
It was originally owned by Frank Kolb a Huber engine threshing outfit of Defiance, Ohio.
Tank size is 15 Bbls model H. All are good shape.
See photo and image catalog....

i have an additional collection of 1920 Banting Mfg Co. catalog 14 pages. I have scanned two images of front and back cover. It's a little different in printing compared to the one in mid 1920's.
1. Front cover 1920 Greyhound logo "Active Powerful-Reliable
The fastest of them all made by The Banting Mfg Co. Toledo, Ohio" I have never seen this type logo advertisement.

2. Right below tell how to get to either our factory or office and salesroom...

A. Factory Dorr St opposite Calvary Cemetery

B. It is interesting to know where the original sales and office. It was located at 114 Superior St (North or south). I could find the archive building photos at special collections center Toledo, Ohio.

Two 4x 6 photos of a larger Greyhound engine. I have purchased it off from eBay. The rear wheels are plow cleats.
Search is on the way for current owner of this engine!

Baker balance valve was manufactured from Minnesota. I have seen an early Greyhound equipped with Baker balance valve then the later year was a standard Gould balanced valve Kellogg Iowa. Both were installed by Banting Mfg Co Toledo, Ohio. So far i do not see any connection from AD Baker. I have actual photo of Baker balance valve ads and an engine.
I heard The AD Baker valve was made on locomotives. Look for info in a brown encyclopedia of american steam traction engine.

Few months ago I have found the original 1916 phone directory book for north western Ohio area. The front cover ads shows an early first year introduction 1915 Greyhound steam traction engine. Very interesting rare find.

Nice find!

Do you recognize any of the names in it? Is Leroy Blaker in it? He may have been living in MI at the time.

Thanks for sharing.

The peoples names were listed in every small town. I do not see any of Michigan. There is no Alvordton , Ohio. Dial the phone like 5 on 35, 6, 9, on 1. It must be one of crank type wall phone! This book is fragile. Handle with care

January 18, 1915 The Banting Manufacturing Company of Toledo, Ohio began making The Greyhound Line of grain threshers and steam traction engines with the capitol stock of 400,000.00 then later in 1920 the capital increased to 1,000,000.00 as shown in state of Ohio record book. It is now 100 years ago when they began manufacturing. I have history written down from 1865 till 1954. The new book will release on approximately around 2017. The first book will be announced and will distribute in Banting Greyhound Museum white canopy near announcer stand at National Threshers Wauseon, Ohio.

Here are the basic info I have documented
1865 Charles Banting The top horsemanship toward the end of civil war in NC
1860's purchased the strip land in Elmore then began using barrel oil
1870 Engaged in farming
1882 First opened Banting-Wolf Hardware store and farm implements Elmore, Ohio.
1890's Wolf left and became a plumber business in Toledo
Sanders became the partner as Banting and Sanders Hardware Elmore, Ohio until 1905. Charles, John Banting has devoted attention about negative and positive farm machinery. They have some inventions to highlight it.
In Dec 1900 Banting established business on 114 Superior St the Buffalo Pitts farm machinery and Buffalo Pitts Line road equipments. They didn't have the business Until late Jan of 1901. The business was named Banting Machine and Supplies Company. The company remotely purchased Auburndale and Toledo Suburb. Building was built when it was the product of Buffalo Company right by the railroad centers where it was delivered in one of the greatest railroad centers in the world. There was over 150 trains in and out daily besides the numerous of electric trolley lines. Banting continue selling the BP lines. They began selling attachments thresher feeders, seeds, Wood brothers machinery line.
In the teens they were agency of Flour City, Wolverine, Ypsilanti, Shelby, John Lauson tractors and some machinery such as American sawmill, Papec, hay presses, etc. Banting machine continue till early 1920's to move to manufacturing office and sales at 2979 Dorr St.
In 1912 Banting bought the 5 acre tract triangle shape next to railroad track and in front of trolley line just 2500 feet outside of city limit. They have the building built with county permit. Buildings were built. The manufacture incorporation January 18, 1915 until it went ceased the manufacturing early 1930 during depression time. The property was sold in April 13th 1930.
During the manufacturing year teens they began selling Allis Chalmers 6-12. Banting was the distribution warehousing in old Willys/Overland plant and dealership at another rented building. Banting Company remained the Allis Chalmers business until 1954 due to Carlos Banting death ended sold at auction. Banting had store located in West Central Ave. They established several branches In Ohio area and Michigan. Banting Company was the largest and the most of Allis Chalmers farm tractors and equipment more than any other dealers in the nation well known sold within six states. I do know Banting Implement store had 33 salesmen at that time of the year. That's amazing. For now I have documented some former Banting employees. One is 43 years career salesman that began in Superior St till Allis Chalmers.
Greyhound steam engine parts was available until 1954 at Allis Chalmers dealership. Threshing machine discontinue in 1930. Greyhound bean thresher was sold to AD baker and all Greyhound Bean thresher parts secured at AD Baker distribution. Ad Baker started manufacturing bean threshers till mid 30's.
Banting mfg company designed and built road machinery, cotton picker and sugar beet harvester. Banting Motor Car company established business in early 1900's till 1941. Banting was the oldest auto dealership in city of Toledo.
That's about it basically. There are lot more I have documented since 1996.

Craig

Hello.

This mans full name was Idan John Haug (1869-1947), son of a norwegian immigrant to MN, USA in 1866. I have some more familyhistory on him if there are some more interest in that. I have received wonderful help out of the Public Library of Regina, which provided me with his obit from 1947 from the newspaper "The Leader Post" in Regina which confirm much of what is written of Mr. "greysteam24hp" here in the forum and others.

Regards Morten undseth of Asker, Norway. (Europe).
