Something that tall, grapevines, hops, some type of bush crops like blueberries. Anyone have a guess. Something like that was at Kinzer this year.

Yep them cranks on O C and H G Oil ALL OVERS are deadly i know first hand on that, one tried to eat me many moons ago . First tractor i was allowed to drive was a Oliver O C 3 and started driving it at age 7 usuallypulling the wagon with irrigation pipe while the men layed it in the tater fields . By age 9 i was working ground with that crawler by myself . The day it tried to eat me i was by myself dragging a 4 section spike tooth getting a large field ready to plant wheat . Everybody else was over a mile away digging taters . The old crawler would not hold the throttle where set so you had to keep you right foot against it , i was running second gear and i was making a wide turn to go back north when i hit the dead furrow at the headland and my foot slipped off the throttle ans she staled . Well the electric started did not work and the battery was dead but it had a crank . For the men it was no problem as they would just give her a quick flip and she would start every time on the first flip . If ya did not want to crank start then when you were done with it ya parked it on the barn bridge and coast started it . With everyone up the road i figured i was BIG enough to just give her a quick flip of the armstrong started and get back with it, So i did as i have seen a hundred times before and my first try i got a putt out of her and on the second try i gave it all i had and she kicked back and spun back wards ripping the crank from my Monkey grip whipping back around and nailed me on the right elbow then it came flyen out and laced me just above the right eye and knocked me senseless for a few seconds . when i got back up off the ground blood was streaming down my face and i was mad and my Saxon temperament came out in full force . I picked up that deadly piece of iron and threw it for all i was worth , in the direction of the big irrigation pond , a 10 acre lake about 30 feet deep . So if ya are needing a crank for one IT'S STILL THERE . Bleeding like a stuck hog i had the long walk back to the house , my aunt saw me walking down the lane and thought i was dyeing , i was just mad , a nice gash in my head that a little soap and water some peroxide and a bandaid fixed and a ride up to the field to get my uncle and tell him what happened . First he asked if i wanted to go home and i said nope got to finish the field , he then say ok i'll come down and give her a quick flip and i said nope that ah ain't ah going to happen unless you want to go swimming first . So they dropped a tater wagon and brought the old M down with the starter chain . I finished my job and made sure my foot did not slip off the throttle . The next weekend i had another field to harrow but now you could start the OC 3 off the starter and the new battery was installed a new gen was in place and the lights now worked and no more parking it on the barn bridge. From that Saturday afternoon to this day i will not use a crank on nothing and plum refuse to work on anything that needs a crank to start. .

That's a great story, and I was laughing when reading it. It brings back memories. I had F-20 at show in October in Pa, it was cold, I was ready to leave so went to start it, and it kicked and crank went flyin almost hitting a bystander.

And then there was the genius up this way that had a Super C with a bucket that was too cheap to buy a battery and too lazy to take the crank out. He was loading something into the body of a pick-up and I think you can guess the rest of the story.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
