Enclosed is a picture of a Huber steam threshing engine owned by brothers Robert and Frank Hasenflue of 164 Washington Street, Amherst, Ohio.
The picture was taken in the summer of 1953 while the engine was threshing wheat. Picture shows Frank Hasenflue at the controls. The engine has five whistles, lubricator operated by steam oil pumps and tallow cup, cross-head pump, duplex steam pump and an injector. The serial number of our Huber is 11530. The small engine on the coalbox in the picture is a steam popcorn engine. The machine is equipped with power steering and a 32 volt steam generator for lights. The engine has been reconditioned like new in the winter of 1952 and during the spring of 1953.
We are old time steam lovers and are proud of the appearance and performance of this steam engine. We had it displayed at the Lorain County Fair this year and it lead the parade of mechanical equipment at the fair.
