I find it interesting here in the US we never seen self loading wagons.  In our area in the 50s-80s when most guys had 100a and 120 head they would of been very handy.  Guess we all had enough kids around to help withe silage and hay harvest....

Poettinger sells self loading wagons in North America but only there Silage version of them, the hay and green feed versions are only sold in Europe https://www.poettinger.at/en_us/Produkte/Kategorie/14/silage-loader-wagons 

Here is a Poettinger self loading wagon brochure from the late 60s or early 70s I think325383698_PTTINGER-Ladewagen-Prospekt-Typ-20-25-30-6.thumb.jpg.979ea64333fe23772e5d714633293e6a.jpgPOTTINGER-Ladewagen-Prospekt-Typ-20-25-30-6-_57.thumb.jpg.1d609c40427b3f863d3f21d31cf7925a.jpg

Don’t forget to see the “big” Allis Chalmers and Gleaner combines at your nearest dealer for the fall harvest of you soybeans and sorghum. From 1956 51FBDFC0-5C04-4912-841A-B1CD2C50553B.thumb.jpeg.ba231ec4f2362dcfdb440843927cfed8.jpeg

I remember anti freeze in cans but the most popular brand in the neighborhood were rectangular cans. But I don't remember the brand. 

I've got a few of those metal anti freeze cans too. Prestone, also a genuine GM anti freeze can. Probably a few others I can't remember. I need to get them out for a picture one day.

Anybody got the 2018 Dupont classic tractor calendar? September tractor is the Canadian built Norseman. Pretty rare tractor apparently. I have this original ad in a Canadian Farm Equipment magazine in 1949. According to the calendar caption there were only 44 of these tractors built. I see there was a dealer in Sask. Wonder if they sold any here?

Antique power did an article on those.  I’ll have to look it up.  Seems like it was just another post WW II component tractor.

Yes, there was a real demand for tractors post WWII so there were a few unknown brands like this one popped up for a while. Many powered by the ubiquitous Chrysler flathead six industrial engine.

There is a Norseman at Country Heritage Park in Milton, Ontario.

 

Good to see there is at least one survivor in Canada. Here is another odd name tractor that was likely a low production post war effort.  The Intercontinental from 1948 or 49.

A most unusual tractor . 

With the snow we have now maybe its time for a set of these Bombardier half tracks for the tractor? You'll recall the name Bombardier as it went on to introduce the "Ski_doo" line of snowmobiles in the 1960s.

That Cultivac tractor was made for Vegi growers other companies like FENDT made a different version which they discontinued in early 2000s. 

That's a awesome ad just to think companies today are offering that again a half tracked tractor.

ONce a proud Canadian farm equipment company. Massey Harris seen here in this 1951 ad. Probably a model 44 tractor pulling a forage harvester.

Interesting. That type machinery was never used here so I know very little about it. Only what I read. 

Here is another likely low production , post war tractor from the Canadian Farm Equipment Dealer magazine. The Haas Atomic. A whopping 12.5 horsepower available.

Here is a very rare Swiss made tractor made in the 1940s, Willy Lang made tractors from the early 30s at this time Doodle bug tractors (cars that had been converted into tractors) than from 1939 he started manufacturing his own frame and finale drives. Tractor production ended in 1952 a total of only 25 tractors were made. This one in the photo is the only one known to exist.

The tractor has a Plymouth engine in it
