I have noticed that with the tractors them selves I am just as interested in the sale literature, brochure, and related items. I have acquired a few pieces here and there. Im including some pictures of a few things I have. I have more and ill post more pictures later on. If you have literature then lets see it. I find it very interesting to see the attachments. The chief tractor brochure I have actually has the prices for tractor and attachments wrote in pencil. (I am assuming a salesmen did it when trying to make sales)

and we don't want to forget that its standard practice, no matter what the work was, to be smoking some kind of plant material in a big old pipe.

The "One Man" folds out into a poster size piece the 116 is just a generic piece really nothing special sbout it. I wanted to reprint the poster but I'm afraid it might rip if I have them run it thru the scanner

Look for somebody that does blue prints. They usually have a big enough scanner to do them. Putting them in a scanner shouldn't hurt it if they are careful. It should just lay there like a copying machine.

the one they use at kinkos you have to feed it thru it is a risk they said no promises if it rips it will be on the folds It's a nice piece on the DQ tractor would look nice blown up and laminated

I'd look for some place that had a flat bed scanner. If the place is good, they can even take ripped pieces, lay them out, and make them look like they weren't ever hurt. They can even take the creases from the folds out.

we used to use a print shop, that had a big flat bed for copying maps. They would also laminate stuff that was bigger than normal size. You might be able to sell a few of those as posters?!?!
