RFD network set a world's record for the most tractors in a parade in Nebraska last fall. In honor of that they invited one person from each state that helped set the record. I think there were 31 states represented.

I didn't get to see the parade, but, I recall that Brent in Acton,CA. was going to try to get his Cub in it via a tractor sponsor? If so, his is an early Cub with blue implements. Looks very nice, too! Steve K.

Scroll down the page just a little bit to the video player on the left side of the page.
Tractors are at about 5 mins 30 secs just after the six team Percheron hitch.

Appears to be a 55 or 56 Lo-Boy with no T/C and looks like a woman was driving it.

I didn't make the cut. There were supposed to be 31 states represented but I only counted about 13 tractors following the float.

If I understand the commentary correctly there were 964 owners from 31 states represented at the RFD Parade held at the Nebraska State Fair which set the Guinness World Record

I can't believe somebody hasn't done a "screen capture" of that loboy and posted it here by now. :( There's a great side on view with the driver that somebody may recognize.

I only got to see the RFD-TV feed, did anyone catch NBC, ABC, or HGTV?
