  • Advance steamer

A special attraction at the Sioux County Youth Fair this year which brought back memories of yesteryear was this huge Advance steamer, being operated by Joe Reinders, 70, of Orange City, and the large, attached separator, widely used 30 years ago and previous, for threshing oats, wheat, previously cut with a binder and shocked.

The big steamer has 16 h.p. on the drawbar and 50 horsepower on the belt.

It is owned by Gary and John Reinders, Dr. M. Vander Maaten and Ben Bonnema. The machine was actually used this summer to thresh a field of oats near Orange City.
