Well, hello. I'm Bert, I'm 19, and I live in northern Minnesota.

We've got a 1968 Oliver 1650 and a '67 1550. We have a '41 Farmall H and a '74?? International 686. I've had the fortune of having a 3600 horsepower locomotive under the control of my hand, and those Olivers feel more solid than pure EMD power!

We use the two Olivers as our working tractors. We do several thousand bales of hay every year and occasionally we will rip up a field and plant small grains. The market determines what we do. The Farmall H starts and runs like a charm, and is currently (slowly) being restored. The International 686 is our bucket tractor, and we use it in the winter for moving snowbanks.

I'm not really sure what to say, except that I love the Oliver-Waukesha diesels. My dad and I have been sharing our work since I was 9, and I hope someday the two Olivers can eventually be restored to new condition.
