Gotta disagree with you on the Bronco being Waterloo's only rider.  They also made one called the Eagle (Guelp U call numbers XA1 RHC A0355008 & XA1 RHC A0355029).

Thanks for pointing that out, Mark.  You are right.  The Eagle was a full size tractor, wasn't it?

Good question.  No idea.  May have more info on Friday.

Does it have hydraulics ? Mine had a little pump unit driven off a short belt ahead of the engine. They are geared low used to win the slow races with mine years back the Wisconsin would ilde right down and never stall out small enough for a pick up yet you could do real work with it. A IHC Cub plow will fit right on. I remember they were a bit tippy due to the high clearance and there was two different transmissions used some were like the General tractor and some with a separate transmission. Cheers Mike

Looks like I was wrong.  The Eagle was 6800 lbs beast.  Riding on 52" rear & 34" front steel wheels and powered by two 8" pistons on an 10" stroke turning 450 rpm, it would do 3 mph in high and 2 mph in low.  It was rated at 20 draw hp & 40 brake hp.

No hydraulics. I am looking forward to getting at this one and getting it running.  It shouldn't take much.  It'll likely be awhile before I paint it.
