Kinze (almost zero motorcycle content, almost)

Back in June I did some training on our machines down in central Iowa, less than a mile from I-80 and between the pandemic and my schedule, I didn't have a chance to visit the Kinze Farm Equipment Company.  Impossible not to notice from the Interstate, their expansive corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility is prominent.

Taken from the big highway back in June...

Taken from the Kinze Innovation Center Parking lot this week, the planter rotates!




Jon's mom wanted dad to buy young Jon a car but dad said, "he's got to buy his own...."  Unable to afford a car, Jon bought this HD while in highschool.  It didn't run....at first.












Interactive displays....





Early welding and alignment fixtures...

Detroit Diesel powered...

Re-powering John Deere tractors...



















Hitchcock cameo....


If I could just get my hands on some of these!



I have to wonder about the horse hookup....





 

And finally, an Iowa sunset from my motel room.
