We have some great tractor collectors here in East Central Illinois and two of these will be featured in the 2010 Classic Tractor Calendar:
Machines from Mahomet, St. Joseph showcased
Meet Ms. (or Mr.) May.
The bright orange, 1960 Chamberlain Canelander hails from Welshpool, Australia, and now resides on the farm of Darius Harms of St. Joseph.
A collector of antique and classic tractors, many of them International Harvesters, Harms said the Chamberlain is one of his favorites.
"It's a fast-moving tractor," he said. It can reach speeds of 35 miles an hour on the road. "And it's a nice tractor to drive," he said.
The Chamberlain is one of a dozen tractors highlighted in the new 2010 calendar "Classic Farm Tractors." Two of the tractors in the calendar this year are from East Central Illinois.
