The boys converted a UB Minn.-Moline tractor to Thermogas in the Spring of 1964 and in March of this year purchased a new M670 Minneapolis- Moline LP tractor from Buscher Bros. Implement of Algona. The boys say: "After converting our UB to Thermogas we were convinced that when the time came to purchase a new tractor it would unquestionally be another LP unit. The economy proven on the conversion plus the noticeable gain in power were two of the main factors in our decision to add a second LP tractor. We have noticed particularly that our LP tractors keep cleaner inside the motor and out. We have been extremely happy with the service offered by Thermogas of Algona, and would highly recommend LP tractors and THERMOGAS to any former, large or small."
