More Snow Motors
We've had an amazing number of people check out our December post on Fordson Snow Devils, so I thought I'd follow up with more pictures of these funky machines.
The first photos are of a nice-looking Fordson Snow Motor at the Heidrick Ag History Center near Sacramento, CA. We need to get measurements and photos of its rear gear mechanisms so we can fabricate a set for the Snow Motor we have on display.
I found the next two photos on the Internet and they've been reposted so many times I have no idea who the photographers are. If one of these pictures is yours and you would like credit, please let me know. This wonderful example in the upper photo belongs to the World Museum of Mining in Butte Montana. The one below it is a mystery. Anyone know where that Snow Motor resides?
I've come across several historic photos (and one video) of these Snow Motors in Alaska, but if you know of others I'd love to hear from you.
