We got a 14-28 Rumely Oilpull
tractor about a year ago from Bill Krumwiede (The Rumely King) of Voltaire,
ND. Bill got the tractor from VanGuard, Sask. Canada in the mid-1950's.
He drove up to Canada in his 48 1 ½ ton Ford truck, and had someone
drop him off at the edge of a field. He then walked 1/2 a mile into the
middle of the section, with two feet of snow on the ground on the level
in the middle of the winter, carrying a battery, coil, wiring, gas, and
Within two hours he had it
running! Bill drove the tractor into town and loaded it onto the truck
and took her back to Crosby, ND where the tractor stayed for many years.
They ran it in the
parade every year. We’re currently doing some maintenance on it to
put it into good mechanical working condition
