Old Graders and Tractors

Recommended Posts

Cool stuff. Is that last machine homemade? Looks like it but I’ve been wrong before. It kind of reminds me of the old Wheel Horse machines worhnall of the implements they had. Would really like that dozer sitting at my house. My grandpa had a Cletrac that ran like a top, had a hydraulic blade and then he sold it.

l wouldn't be afraid of the garden tractor. As l would be of that steam powered thing-a-ma-jig-what-ya-ma-call-it! Looks like something the Three Stooges built!   .....Hippy

                             Vladislav- it does say Buda Lanova on the rating tag at the back middle of the block you can just make out the small brass tag. I was told this one is a 1952 one of the last Buda's before

                             Allis Chalmers bought them out in 1953.

Just noticed that first grader is a Galion. Grampa ran Galions, Austin awesterns and the last one he ran was a cat until he retired.

Once again, thank you for sharing, very interesting.

As long as I know Mack put diesel engines in trucks before having its own diesel. The first series production Mack diesel was ED-519 Lanova introduced in November 1938. And those diesels installed before that date (and possibly later either) were Buda Lanova.
