For red tractor enthusiasts, the 28th Annual Red Power Round Up is the place to be June 15-17 in Des Moines, Iowa. More than 1,000 tractors will be on display, including many special tractors such as one of the six Steiger-built models – 7388, 7588, 7788. Only two of each of these were built. The 7488, Serial Number 1 also is expected, the very first example of only 15 built.

Lee Klancher, owner of Octane Press, an IH authority and author of such books as Red Tractors, Red Combines and the soon to be released, Red 4WD Tractors, will moderate panel discussions on the 2+2 tractor and Steiger-built tractors and last days of IH. He will be joined by several of the engineers who brought these tractors to life. They’ll share untold stories about the tractors’ design, development and creation – offering a sneak peek into some of the stories in Red 4WD Tractors.

Red 4WD Tractors coverRed 4WD Tractors, features the limited 7488 on the cover and captures stories about the design and evolution of high-horsepower four-wheel-drive tractors. The book chronicles many rare and collectible machines, including the 2+2 – one of the most revolutionary and controversial machines built by IH, with styling and performance that generated varied reactions. The last of these are now some of the most collectible IH tractors in existence, with values well above $100,000. Early copies of Red 4WD Tractors will debut at the show.

We invite you to join Octane Press during the three-day event to learn more about IH tractors, see one-of-a-kind tractors, interview the guest engineers and meet the authors who are capturing their stories.
