Yesterday I mentioned that there was a decent collection of classic tractors on hand during the Empire Farm Days 2013 show. The large turn out was made possible by the local tractor clubs of the area. Red power. Green power. Orange power. All the colors of the rainbow.
And where would modern farming be without the diesel powered truck? No where! Most of the rigs on hand were of the “just rolled out of the field” variety. EFD is held on a working farm so I was even able to grab a shot of a truck parked near some silos. There was a nice restored B-Model on hand for Alyne Trucking and a International WorkStar with some serious floating tires for the fields.
There was also an interesting selection of tractors from Willow Run Farms. If you want a immaculately restored John Deere from the mid 80’s to early 90’s give them a call. They have some really beauties.
And if that wasn’t enough there was a massive two day auction on the grounds. Tractors, trucks, cars, heavy equipment, building supplies, etc. I was surprised to find a B-67 sitting in the row of trucks waiting for the hammer to fall. Body wise it was in decent shape from what I could tell. Other highlights included a Detroit powered 70’s FWD plow truck, Cat 621 scraper, a Cat 977K dozer and International Hough Payloader. All fall under the vintage, heavy iron category. Walk around videos to follow.
So next year if you are looking to take a day off in the middle of the week I suggest taking a trip to the Empire Farm Days. There is MUCH more to this event than I covered. Bring the entire family!
