Speedex is the feature tractor at the National Pike Steam Gas and Horse Show next weekend in Brownsville PA. This is a great show that I have attended at least
20 years. Google their website for more information.

I used to go every year but have not been there for several years.Lots of YouTube videos filmed there,I filmed this one years ago.

 

The place is like an antique construction site with most equipment operating and they even supply all the free fuel you need.I will be there Friday.

For anyone that attends this show regularly, is it worth stopping by on Sunday? My wife and I go to a car show in Ohio this weekend every year and we occasionally avoid the highway and take the scenic route home. We've gone by this show in the past but it's been fairly late in the afternoon on Sunday so I never stopped. 90% of the shows I go to are definitely NOT worth a visit on Sunday as all the exhibitors are long gone. Is this one worth a stop on Sunday afternoon?

Like always, anything Speedex worth seeing or buying is way over in OH or PA.  Would like to go to a show like that, but distance too far and $$ out this year anyway.  Not being able to go, helps me Wean off the Hobbie some, heh!

Holy $%&#! You come from NH down to Fayette County? That's dedication.

Not only do I collect and restore garden tractors, I have two Unit cable shovels in my collection. I
arrive a week early in Brownsville to help repair and operate some of the shovels. It is the best
digging show in the country and maybe the world. We have visitors from Europe, Australia, Canada, and
other countries. I will say from experience that you can probably restore fifty garden tractors for the time and cost to do a half yard shovel. My Shaw D4T and my Unit 614 Pull shovel are the best toys I
ever had.
