Many of the attachments for the compact tractor owner of yesteryear were made by Haban (pronounced "Hey-ben") Manufacturing of Racine. While searching the internet looking up the history of Haban I found this video called "The Joe Haban Story". Being off the farm myself and a family history of the farm machinery business I found the story very interesting.

If there is a link elsewhere or this is "old hat" my apologies.

Very cool video. It is great learning the history of the Haban family and how the attachments came about.
