Interesting pull. Just cause you're old, don't mean you still can't keep up with the young'uns.

Looks like a matter of traction to me. Note also that the steamer is being operated at max boiler pressure. The safety valve is blowing steam whenever it is not pulling. Not a real smart way to operate a steam engine. Vern

Absolutely. It's all about traction as long as he has enough power. That steam tractor probably weight 2 to 3 times what the Deere does, and I don't think the wheels ever slipped! It even pulled him out of the loose dirt in the ruts!

The squeaky wheel may get the grease but it's usually the first to be replaced!
