Remembering a special restoration


Tags: ,


Very impressed by the articles by Fred Hendricks and Sam Moore about Ohio (see Farm Collector, October 2020)! I believe every city in the north part of Ohio had something to do with the progress of the farm. I drive by the homestead of Isaac Hoover (inventor of the commercial potato digger) every day. So much history here, as my mother, Donna Dahs, was the local historian for the township for more than 60 years.

The picture of the Sandusky tractor (Farm Collector, October 2020) caught my eye as my father, Eugene Dahs, and others (not me, too many bosses) restored that Sandusky tractor in his farm shop. I would help Dad load it up to take to shows in northern Ohio. I drove it in a few parades and helped him start it when needed. He would spend more time tinkering on that tractor than he would on his farm tractors.

Enclosed is a picture of my son Christopher and Dad in 2004, set up in the Sandusky Mall. I would like to hear from anyone about the Sandusky tractor.
