These guys built this thing from scratch using blueprints they got from Case. I think it was quite remarkable and very interesting. When I was a kid, you could get working toy models of these and if you weren't careful, they could blow up on you. The real ones could too.

Also, you sure as heck better watch where you put your fingers on one of these.

I use to travel to tractor to tractor shows all over the east and to the fringes of the mis-west. I marveled at those behemoth steam tractors but always stayed well distanced from them out of caution they might blow up. Some of the tractors were 100 years old and were given a great deal of respect. Compared to my John Deere lawn and garden tractor those things were BIG!

Eighteen minutes of watching a tractor, a steam tractor, pull 44 plows. Loved every minute of it and the camera work was very good. Pretty impressive stuff but doubtful city boys will get it. Thanks for sharing!!
