Old Crawler

Old Crawler
Back in the 40's, there were brothers named Werner, who farmed in Northern Boone County, NE. The one named Con was a huge fellow. His crawler had two cranks, or levers, with handles on the outer ends for steering. For a kid, it took both arms to swing the crank back towards you. We watched in awe as he started it. He primed it with both oil & gas, then he poked a 5 or 6'round bar into one of the holes in the topside of the open flywheel which partially came above the platform, and pulled the engine over about half a turn at a time. The holes were slotted on the back side, and when the engine came to life, the round bar rattled out of the hole. The last time I saw the old tractor it was auctioned off, to close the estate of the last brother Dave. This was south-west of Primrose, NE in the early 1980's. It may not have been in running condition by that time. It had rather smooth treads. My Dad said he could put lugs on in winter. As I remember, it was sort of gray in color. I can remember the hard shiny track it left on the clay country road.
