Default 12-25 Avery doing the work of a 40-80

Here is a little video clip from the Central North Dakota Steam Threshers reunion in New Rockford, ND this year showing a 12-25 Avery doing what is not supposed to be even close to possible. It strutted right along with the plow levers all the way up in that North Dakota wheat stubble(did have a little wheel slippage though, nothing some extra wheel spuds wouldn't cure).
Doing the work of a 40-80, on less than half the fuel!

Thank you for the video. Always wanted to get to the New Rockford show and made it there a couple of years ago. That is one of the nicest shows I ever attended!
