I have a picture of one of these going down the road in one of my Ford books. Were used for mail delivery on the plains. Also remember seeing one in action in the Dakotas (didn't know how important a picture would be at that time)

Would be a good find to latch on to

Thank you for your reply. Looks like it will not happen unless some "unknown" rich relative passes on leaving me filthy rich.

The Snow motor drive looks very interesting; I would like to see one operating, or better yet, get to operate one myself.

Cheers

Brian

It was sent via email to a friend of mine, who in turn, thought I might like it.

I am not sure who actually salvaged it.

I am also happy that this was re-born!

I think it's wonderful that someone found and preserved this video presentation. So much of the "old stuff" that was produced has been lost. To whomever is responsible, I would like to say THANK YOU!

From what I can see it looks like you are correct.
A model F would be the right year according to the film.
It appears to me that the Blue Fordson in the other pictures has a P6 engine.

Is it also a model F? Would I be correct in assuming this Armstead Snow Motor attachment would fit on a Fordson E27N?

I would like one to play with, - o-o-opps I meant work with!

I would like to thank everyone for your assistance on this.

Brian

Brian Allen greetings. I guess a P6 would fit onto an F gearbox/drive train as I have seen several Model N's with either a P6 or an L4 perkins and as far as I know F and N were interchangeable. About fitting up an E27N in this guise!!!It would not just fit because the back end is completely different both inside and out; but I always reckon that within reason any engine/attachment will fit on any tractor. All you need is a little ingenuity,the facilities, determination and the money. I think for this particular one It would mean a lot of everything especially money. If you do play with this one let me know the outcome because I would travel wherever to see it.
Good luck and Take care MTF

I found this link, which provides additional information on the Armstead Snow Motor.
Testing was carried out as early as 1924.

Thanks for posting the picture.

It is identical to the one in the video.

I haven't come across anything like this before.

Looks like it would be fun to drive.

Thanks

That engine looks kinda like a old model A or T motor we had on an old grist mill . It was home made from one of the two just not sure what one .

Pic worked for me on this slow dial up connection THANKS .

Great pic never seen anything like that

Everything about this machine suggests to me a Fordson Model F. I understand that a lot of ModelF/ModelT
motor parts were interchangeable.(dont quote me cos I don't actually know that) MTF

Hi I have actually seen one of these in a museum, but I cant for the life of me remember where. However I did manage to find this pic which I hope is the machine in question( Incidently I believe they were also trialled in the mud and slush during WW1) MTF

I've posted pictures of this type of machine previously. There is one on display at Butte, Montana. No, they did not share many parts with the Model T. Maybe the ignition system and some nuts and bolts.

I was just a kid it was many years ago and I'm just not that familliar with these. The way the heads shaped with the top cooling hose on a slant built into the head is what made me think of it .

Checking it out again and reflecting back this engines much heavier duty ( beefier) Than the old engine on the mill . But reflecting back I can see Henery Ford in both lol

I emailed the link to you.

Does anyone else need it?

It would be nice if someone could provide information.

It took place in Michigan in 1926 and is called a Snow-motor.

It is a large download for your computer for the movie.

I think it would be too much for those on dial-up.

PS

It shows a Fordson tractor converted to dual screw drums under the tractor.

Also shows an old Chev car converted to the same system.

So, would think it is aftermarket.
