So, here is the next post in the lawn tractors and boys series of pictures. This photo session was hosted (without any consent) by Rona, a Canadian home and garden improvement store.
Memories of Sunnier Days
The last week and a bit have been mostly overcast and snowy here on the Calgary area. I’m not complaining or anything and would gladly have that rather than hurricane Sandy.
So, to remember when the days were more sunny, here are a couple of pictures of little boys driving lawn tractors at the local Lowes store.
Pioneer Days at Irricana, Sunday, August 12th.
This next tractor is interesting. Grandpa was telling us that the manufacturer, trying to add another useful function to the family tractor, envisioned and built a tractor that a farmer could use to both till the fields and drive to church. Apparently the tractor had some issues with the front suspension not working that well, and the go-to-meeting aspect didn’t work out quite as hoped.
And the last tractor picture that I will post is this Minneapolis-Moline 4 wheel drive tractor. This is the first MM 4 wheel drive that I had seen, and while I admit that I am not a tractor historian, I never knew that they made them.
