Old Binder Guy Posted March 27, 2014 Share Posted March 27, 2014 Ray, That storm at the ranch was a three day intense storm with snowflakes the size of Loonies, but happened in April. We had a nasty, nasty winter in 1978 as well. This snow was over the fences along our lane to the county road. The winter dragged on and on. I about trashed my TD-18A. I had to go through the transmission and finals afterward and broke some bushings in the tracks. Our kids couldn't ride the county road (about 4 miles) portion of their bus route for 47 days, before we and the County equipment could finally meet up near Glengarry. Before that, a neighbor and teacher in Lewistown, would take my snowmobile and our two kids to meet the bus at the highway. Ray54, Kevin and Ralph, You are correct about Monarch preceding a sale to Allis-Chalmers. I believe it came after the stock market crash of 1929 sometime? This is one of my friend's 75 Monarch. This is their 50 Monarch crawler and I believe most all Monarch crawlers steered with a steering wheel. This is a very early Monarch crawler.
