OK, we're on a roll here so here's some more. How many Reeves tractors have you seen in your life?
B&W pic is from a 1913 Canadian Farm Implements magazine. It says Reeves 40 hauling broom corn to market, owned by AF Bond (The name's BOND, AF Bond!!!) (sorry, couldn't help myself there ) from Beaver County, Oklahoma.
The colour shots are again a couple of Mr. Tysse's tractors at Crosby, ND in the late 80s.
I don't have much statistical data on Reeves. Can anyone help out?
All the best,
G.

Mr. Wendel gives stats on the Reeves 40 (40-65) as having a Twin City (MS&M Co) motor - 4 cyl, 7 and 1/4 by 9 inch @500rpms. Weight 23,000, 24x90 inch rears.
But can't find info on the 25-50 shown at Crosby?
How many Reeves tractors exist? They were sold by Emerson-Brantingham who took over Reeves c1912.
Thanks,
G.

Ross,
Great view of all those Averys. They are great machines, they would make a wonderful sound.
Here is a picture that should set everyone's heart to thumping!!!! This load of E-B, Big4s was heading to Western Canada in 1913! You'd want to get the job to help unload this train! Wonder where they all are now?

Well Eric does have it right. Look where all the American stuff went, its either at the bottom of the ocean or rained over Japan and Europe. What a neat picture though

Sad as the idea is, if we hadn't scattered Rumelys, Big-Fours, Gaar Scotts, Cases of every kind, and a few old binders and plows all over those places, do you think we'd be speakin' English now??
Thanks for posting the trainload of Big-Fours, G!

Right on, MoRO, guess we should consider all that old machinery as soldiers that gave their life for the country, huh?

One of the Big 4s escaped that fate. I saw one at the Western Development Museum in Yorkton, Sask.

So, Case made some big iron too. The two 30-60s are at the Case Expo at Rollag, but several years back now, in the 90s? I hope someone can tell me which be which? I think one belongs to the Rathert Family of ND, and the other???
I must have taken the 40-72 crossmount picture at Austin, Manitoba at the Case Expo there in the late 80s as I see a Sawyer-Massey smokbox door in the background. Again, I am sad to say , I can't recall the owners name? I do know it ran like a top and I couldn't believe how easy that big motor was to start!
So, how many of each exist today? There was a 30-60 at Crosby and possibly at Billings? WDM in SK has a 40-72. Are there 5 of each?

I'm fairly positive that there was a 40-72 at Mt pleasant in 2005. I'd have to dig through a lot of pics to make sure.

Here's another line up of power that I also need a bit of help on? I am pretty sure I took this picture at Crosby, back in the 80s, sure looks like it? As for IHC tractors, I usually get them wrong when I try to name off the early ones There must be some experts looking in who will know for sure?
Boys, it is a bugger to get old and have the memory start to get wobbly Just ask ol' Farquhar or Ross Clarke?
