I found this and thought it was a pretty neat story of how he bought a foundry to build the steamer and still have the steamer, and foundry.

Saw the 150 when it was in Rollag in '19. Didn't stay to see the pull, but watched it on one of the sawmills. That thing is HUGE!! It is something to see.

Amazing what 150 hp in those steam engines could pull. Today we sell or buy 400 hp tractors that the way they are built today could not pull 50 bottoms and there is the extra weight of the hook ups and the persons tending the plows.

Traction to the ground. The old 8N was a two bottom plow tractor. Your 20hp tractors today are rated for just one.

Yeah and these were built for pulling multiple tons of ore out of mines the downfall was the alloys at the time were to poor and the drive gears would break, with this one the metallurgy should be better and hopefully can last many years.

Kory is a amazing machinist and inventor. There is not much this kid cant do. He had a vision and made it come thru. I was down in Andover when he pulled 50 bottoms. It is quite the machine.
