These old Rumely Oil Pull tractors are awesome. Built from 1910 to 1930 by the Advance-Rumely Company, the Rumely Oil Pull farm tractors are some heavy duty beasts being made of heavy metal and usually burning kerosene. As you will see in this killer video, these old timey tractors are started by spinning their flywheels. Drivers used to start the tractors using their bodyweight to get the flywheel spinning; in this video, two men were needed to start the tractor. This Rumely Oil Pull tractor is one of the five that teamed up to pull a 66-bottom plow, a world record setting feat.
That was nuts. Wait until you see the next video below.
