- FARM EQUIPMENT
- The 110 Lawnmower was developed in the 1960s. It was made in Horicon, WI, at the same facilicity where Van Brunt Drills were made after the takeover in 1910. It was quite a popular model in its day. The next item is a 1918 Waterloo R tractor. Made until 1923. Started with gasoline, ran on kerosene. Two cylinder engine. Steering was "adequate," not good for tight areas. Waterloo had been in operation since around 1901. It has steel wheels. Next item is Model C. Only made about 200. Built in 1928. The two cylinder engine was around until the 1960s. When rubber tires were introduced, some farmers thought the rubber would contaminate the soil. This particular example has rubber lugs on the wheels so it can be safely driven on roads.
