The one diesel lombard that was factory built,pulled a record load of 108 1/2 cords of pulpwood on sleds. the weight of the cordwood and sleds was around 300 tons!!! pretty good for a 10 ton tractor even if it was on ice!

Figured you would get a kick out of this. the scratches in the concrete and the signs all indicate she is a runner and was out at the Steam up.....

Thats the Wabeno Phoenix that was originally owned by Jones lumber co.,i been there a number of times and visited with Milt Lang who was one of the founders of the Wabeno museum. They also have a nice cookhouse and bunkhouse display. The Phoenix was the early style machine lombard used untill 1908,phoenix paid $1000 royalty to Lombard for each machine produced.

Loggah,

I know it's a little south, but you need to stop driving that thing around on dry ground! Wait for some snow to give some cushion!
