Drilling into Local History with a Water Well Drill

Wyoming collector rebuilds and restores water well drill dating back to the 1870s.

Loading the water well drill with a 1940 Cletrac HG
Larry uses his 1940 Cletrac HG to load his water well drill on the trailer for transport to shows and parades. He spotted the Cletrac (since restored) as he drove past a scrap yard. "I got it for scrap iron price," he says, "and the engine wasn't stuck. It didn't take much to get it running."
