2748 Route 7 N Andover, OH

On September 18, 1988, my father, James Malz of Andover, Ohio, fired up his 25 HP Huber traction engine. It is in excellent condition, and has power steering. He bought it in Clarksburg, Ohio, near Columbus. Jim also owns a 20 HP Aultman-Taylor, and a 14 HP Huber. These engines were taken to the Portersville Steam Show (Northwest Pennsylvania Steam Engine and Old Equipment Association). Jim also has owned other engines over the years.

We invited some of our friends over to see the Huber run for the first time in Andover. Present were Tom Downing from Ellwood City, PA; Graydon Brooks, a good friend from here in Andover; and Kevin Small from Portersville. We hope to take our new Huber and other engines to some shows in 1989, and will see our friends there.
