Photos from Union Thresheree

Mark LeNoble stands by his family’s 1919 Nichols and Shepard 20-75hp steam tractor at the 48th annual Union Thresheree in Symco.  Victor LeNoble and his sons Mark and Doug of Embarrass purchased the tractor in 2007.  They named the tractor Old Floozie because she has so many flues.  John Faucher Photo Victor LeNoble stands beside his 1890’s vintage Chandler and Taylor stationary steam engine at the Union Thresheree.  The engine last ran in the Lee Boldig Saw Mill near Bowler around 1975.  LeNoble purchased the engine and it sat on his farm for nearly 35 years.  Last fall he and his family restored the engine.  Recently they attached it to a Ford dump truck frame to make it portable.  This year was its first appearance on the Thresheree grounds.

The 3060 E Rumely is the largest model Rumely ever manufactured.  The Union Thresherman’s Club featured Rumely Tractors and products at this year’s event.
