The first-ever "Red Power Charge" showcased International Harvester tractors and equipment in upstate New York during show season 2006.
This nicely restored Trac-Lift-brand forklift was a real showstopper. The machine served for more than 30 years as a yard machine at a local lumber company.
This 1946 Farmall M with Trojan Road Patrol grader attachment is typical for early self-propelled road maintainers. This unit belongs to Don Johnstone.
Chris Ryan braves the rain to parade his family's Tractor Trax-equipped Cub Cadet Model 124. The machine was restored in time for the Hemlock show to celebrate his brother Mark's life, which was cut short by a tragic accident.
Kurt Lutz displayed his beautifully restored Cub Cadet Original and very rare Danco RD-300 loader at Hemlock. The loader features hydraulic lift with a trip bucket.
International Harvester red was the color of the day at the Red Power Charge at Hemlock, N.Y.
Tom Fix owns this lovely 1940 IH D-2 pickup. He prefers old IH models for getting around in, a preference he picked up from his dad, Lyle, who displayed a beautifully restored 1947 IH Model KB-2 pickup truck at the Red Power Charge.
Friends Clayton Wing (left) and Jim Slocum demonstrate Jim's shingle mill, which was built by Henry and George Angell in about 1869. The mill is powered by a John Deere Model LUC power unit.
Tweed Herendeen displayed his Farmall 504 high clearance tractor. This tractor is particularly interesting because it is one of relatively few modified for bean field duty by the Chisolm-Ryder Co. of Niagara Falls, N.Y.
Ed Jablonski prefers to run his antique engines (like this 1928 International Harvester Model M) on kerosene, the fuel they were designed to burn. In his words they "sound nicer, run smoother and smell better" on kerosene than gasoline. They blow nice puffs of smoke and the occasional smoke ring on that oily fuel too.
Andrew Sherwood's IH-powered 1950s vintage Adams no. 201 leaning wheel road grader is perfect for maintaining farm lanes and taking to shows.
