Hi, Folks.
Let's see who was around when Noah built his shipyard and can remember this being part of the fleet??????? Found at the recent AGSEM show at Vista, CA. and so AGSEM members are excluded from this competition.



Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Sure looks like it might need a touch up of ORANGE Paint! One of those early loaders - not much reach so were pretty tough on the trucks they were loading.
One in the background - Grey Paint - looks like someone forgot to tie the crank up, good way to bend them back under the radiator, break the castings too!
If I am not mistaken, it is Wide Gauge too -- not many of those around, especially here in N. California - many were taken for early Hardy Combine Running Gear.
One pic shows some very faded RED paint too -- Fuel tank looks like one of those "harvester's" of the TD series, cable unit on back

How many thorns through those sandals on the feet of that bloke behind the camera? Never can tell where that fella is other than the Neon Green shirt.

My guess is AC model K. I spent a day or 2 running a K . There where a good number of them here, but only knew of one that had not been switched to Butane, or Propane. Steering clutches being weak,butane getting very hard to get, and a nice HD 5 for sale next door ended the use of the K.

Hi, Folks.
More to the point, WHAT is the huge lump of attached paraphernalia hanging off the front of that crawler?

Hi, ctsnowfighter.
ZERO thorns through the THONGS of the bloke behind the camera - picks said THONGS for thickness of sole and impenetrability - not quite his first rodeo.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Crawler is an Allis Chalmers M. Looks like some sort of root rake on the front end. Maybe for removing old vines or trees?

Edit: I believe the loader attachment is a Hough.

Hi, Celeriac.
Collect your prize at Juiceman's Pear Fair, last Sunday of July. I vaguely remember hearing ctsnowfighter saying that he was gonna donate something special to the first person to say what that jigger useta be. You will likely find him standing in for me at the dunk tank.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Alas according to the Google I'm 2420 miles distant from the festivities 😕. Looks like a really fun event, maybe I'll make it out west some year to take it in.
