Here is a Utube of it running. Wendell

Jim purchased that 20-35 in Wisconsin years ago. That is one neat tractor. I would love to have a two-cylinder 20-35 Avery.

Brad, Do you know if the 20-35 Avery was originally from Wisconsin or have any other history about the tractor? Thanks, Lou

Wendell, What's the serial # on the Avery? John Tysse has serial #1806 & #2052. They are featuring Avery next year at Crosby 2015. Both running.

Here is a picture Mike Travis was gracious enough to pass along to us of our 20-35 Avery before Jim bought it out of WI.

I only know that Jim picked up the tractor at the Rock River show. Oilpulled or someone up in that area may know the history of the tractor.

I think I have the previous owner's name in my notes. In NC now, I'll buzz it to you when I get home.

We have had it running since it returned to Canada, starting it up with the small engine.My friend Clyde Hall from Filmore SK came and helped get the small motor running.Clyde is going to help get all the pipework reconnected so we can run it on kerosene, as we hope to have it plowing after next year's harvest.

Yes we did see the name of JJ Ruth of Macklin,I have a friend who lives close to Macklin who is checking if any of that family still exist.
He also told me that in the sixties a guy called Stan Faye had a lot of big old tractors stood in a field.
I know this is a very old post but I just happened upon it and I am wondering if you ever found the family. J.J. Ruth was my Grandmother's brother-in-law and she worked on his farm after coming to Canada. I would be interested in finding out more. Thank you.
