1938 Huber LC
Jul 30, 2011
This tractor is featured for the month of August in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.
The Young brothers, Loudenville, Ohio, purchased this Huber new with the thresher. They drove it 60 miles from the factory in Marion, Ohio, to their place and used it for custom threshing. It remained in the Young family until Jim Nickles bought it in 2000. It sports a Waukesha 4-cylinder engine (334 cubic inches) valve in head type, with removable sleeves. Huber had branches in Harrisburg, Pa., Lansin, Mich., Indianapolis, Ind., Peoria, Ill., Minneapolis, Minn., Lincoln, Neb., and Fargo, N.D. The Huber would pull two 14” plows easily. Note the fire extinguisher and headlights.
Owner: James L. Nickles
He has a well-equipped shop where he restores tractors. “The Huber is original expect for the cap for the 2-gal. gas tank, and the new exhaust manifold,” he says. He added new decals and new tires. He points out Hubers were in Marion, Ohio where there’s a Huber Museum. Click here for more information on the Huber museum.
