Red Power Round Up 2012

The Red Power Round Up is the national International Harvester tractor show. The location moves every year. Last year it was in Albert Lea, MN, this year it was in DuQuoin IL. My Dad and I went both years to display some little machines. This year was a huge show, with large crowds, and lots of machines.  

We had a very good time at the show. Met people from Australia, Canada, and all over the US. We had decent weather. Nothing blew away... It was hot though. Thanks to my Dad for all of your hard work and support. I couldn't ask for a better sales associate... :)

We took four more orders, two of which will be challenging and I'm really looking forward to. I now have 16 machines to build... I guess I better start hustling...

I am so thankful for the success of "Little Tractors." I am amazed at what God will do if you ask. He will provide above and beyond anything that our finite minds can imagine. I never would have dreamed that I'd build miniature tractors for a living, but that is what I'm doing. :) I get to meet the best people this country (and world) has to offer, and they are so excited with the finished product that they receive. I love my job!

This was the display,  I took this photo first thing in the morning. The booth was rarely empty. Young and young at heart loved looking at the tractors and asking questions.

 I found my FWA's Daddy in IL. There was only one FWA 1206 at the whole show.

 This picture gives an idea of what a "Pro-Stock" tractor looks like.
The pulling tractor is a mechanical twin to this little Cub Cadet. (Except for the turbo charger I installed.) Eight weeks before this picture was taken, the pulling tractor looked like the lawn mower...

About the Little Tractors...

       Hello, I thought I'd address a few questions about these custom, hand made, half scale tractors. ...
