Bump... I see I've been quite absent for well over three years with this thread.

This is a later round radiator with tubes style 40-65 Reeves pulling a combined harvester with bulk grain tank, unloading grain near the Geraldine/Fort Benton area of Montana.

Just a few miles from the 40-65 Reeves in my last post is this photo of a 40-120hp Reeves steam engine and a 40-65 Reeves gas tractor farming at Pownall, Montana (don't look on the map, as it has been gone for over a half century) during WWI. There were actually five tractors and engines in this field and they were all sporting an American flag, as this Reeves is. I grew up within eyesight of that flattop mountain in the background; Montana's Square Butte east. I recently heard that tractor has been setting back away from civilization and is still there... not for sale. Notice this one has the earlier style of tall radiator with a fan atop it.



I thought, what the heck... I'll get this photo of all the outfits as well. Left to right: a Pioneer 30-60, Big Four 30, Geiser-Peerless Z-Z, 40-120 (US) Reeves and the 40-65 Reeves gas. They are all sporting US flags. The owner of the custom farming outfit was Len Chapin. Gary

Not many!

Or as we say here, a couple or three!

10 or 11 by my count. One is a 25-50, others are 40-65s.
