Not since the Krause sale!!!
Was that Jeff's doing? I was invited to attend but I seldom get ANYWHERE...
I'll bet you all had great time and what a beautiful setting.
I STILL have a set of canopy irons if anyone has a Waterloo Eagle with the frame drilled FOR a canopy....I know they are out there.
My 22-45 had the drill holes but talk about a Chinese PUZZLE....

The 2005 Eagle Expo at Chelsea, Michigan was a great Eagle tractor show. The comment was made that there probably wasn't that many Eagle tractors all sitting in one place since they were made at the factory in Appleton, Wisc. Jeff Vigue told me that there were 21 two cylinder models, with 7 20-35 E's alone, with 3 model F's, two 16-30's and one 12-22; and the rest H's from the 13-25, 16-30, 20-40, and 22-45. There was 7 Eagle 6's of the different models both row crops and standards. Also on hand was 6 power units, a Eagle silage cutter and a few various hay tools made by Eagle. Eagle equipment came from Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio, Canada, and I sure hope I didn't miss any other places, and if I did please let us know on this forum. The Paul Bollinger family sure puts on a good show with beautiful grounds for this kind of show--many thanks to them!

Warren - Good luck with the Eagle show at Symco. The last Symco one was a hoot - it seems like just yesterday but I bet it has been a few years now. These things keep coming out of the woodwork! Never heard of the one in Germany and just got a letter from the Netherlands yesterday looking for info on another one. He didn't say what hp but the # was 1602 or 1682, hard to tell. There seem to be a surprising number of surviving Eagles considering how few were made. Will likely have my 20-40 running tomorrow
All the best,
Rick.

The Symco, WI show will be a great time for Eagle owners to get together. I was there visiting this summer, had the private tour and got to know the Werth family very well. They are wonderful, friendly folks and their many permanent buildings and displays rival any show around. It is truly a little village that this family has put together. Being the self appointed events director of the '06 Symco Eagle rally, we've already planned on having some active Eagle demonstrations including belt work and plowing.
I told Warren I'd help getting owners there, but only up to 27 tractors, one less than I was able to get to attend the Chelsea show ths summer!
Seriously, with any luck we should be able to set another record and I hope we do. We should have every known model of tractor exhibited along with a great number of rare engines and other implements. Wisconsin is of course the state of origin of the Eagles and there are more there than any other US state. So, mark your calenders and bring your Eagles! I've had several people tell me they wished they'd have exhibited at the one this summer. Don't be one of those next year.

George auf Deutschland, wie gehts? - Not sure how many 20-40s were made and a lot of that Eagle info has faded from my memory. The earliest # I have for a 40 is #1226 (c1921-22?) and they built the Regular 40s with the 12 inch tread until about 1926. After that you got the Improved model with 16" wheels starting about #1464 - I have one of those. Later, they had the 40 Special with 18" wheels and the highest # I have is #1767 (c1929). Remember, they also mixed all the other sizes in the same # system so not very many made in total. Improved and Special were the same motor but heavier gears, etc., over the Regular versions - all 8x10 cylinders.
Auf Wiedersehen!
Rick.

I have several original Eagle catalogs in one they picture an 8 - 16 tractor. I never heard of this model are there any out there? Kevin

Kevin - I never sniffed out any 8-16s in my research how ever many years ago that was now!? But no doubt there is one out there somewhere; more likely in Wisconsin because Eagle never got too far afield in the early days. There is supposed to be a Model D tractor out there but never knew the size - could it be an 8-16? I am sworn to secrecy on that one
What about the earlier big girls, the 4 cylinder 40-60 an such! Now whose keeping that one secret? There has to be one in Minnesota or the Dakotas?
Rick.
