I live just outside Ottawa, Kansas, and have always admired the little Ottawa Mule Team Tractors. I understand they were built from early 1949 to July 1951.
This past weekend was the 9th Annual Power of the Past Tractor Show, held just 2 blocks from the building where Warner Manufacturing built the little Ottawa Mule Teams. Next year, the 10th Annual, will be very special, Ottawa Tractors and Warner Engines will be the feature models. If you would like more info about next year's show, let me know. I'll see what I can find out for you.
As a teenager sometimes referred to as a "hick", I love messing with old tractors, especially Allis Chalmers Tractors and Wheel Horse Garden Tractors.
If anyone has an Ottawa for sale not far from Kansas (and reasonably priced!) I would love to bring one back to it's roots here in Ottawa, Kansas.
