The Upper Midwest A-C Club hosted the 30th annual Orange Spectacular in Hutchinson Minnesota and was pleased to host this year’s location for the Gathering of the Orange – West. Hosting the national show brought many new visitors.  This year’s feature tractor was the D-19 which celebrated its 60th anniversary. Join us as we take you on a tour of the many Allis-Chalmers tractors and implements brought to the show. The Field Demonstrations got underway with the Allis-Chalmers 22-36 Threshing Machines followed by the popular All-Crop Harvester family, raking, baling with the Roto-Baler and small Allis-Chalmers square balers, bale loading and plowing with Allis-Chalmers tractors big and small. The video also includes a look at some Allis-Chalmers toy and model railroad displays, the last Allis- Chalmers Tractor built, an Allis-Chalmers G used at the LaPorte factory, an Interview with Jan Jocham – former employee of the West Allis Plant, and Much More!
