Absolutely TasCowboy, they were taken a few years ago a few hours north from here. This was close to Lake Okeechobee. In our beautiful "Sunshine State" Florida.

Re: Sugar Cane Harvest
Great photos That 4555 without cab is not very usual I guess. The tractor in front off those wagons is it a MM or?

Re: Sugar Cane Harvest
jdeere interesting I had never heard about the M-R-S tractor before. After doing some research on the WEB I learned that the M-R-S company was a military equipment supplier for the department of defense from WWII thru Vietnam. Their manufacturing facilitity was in Flora Mississippi. The company name M-R-S stood for Mississippi Road Supply.

According to the book “Giant Earthmovers: An Illustrated History” by Keith Haddock (see link below) the M-R-S company was bought by Taylor Machine Works in 1986. According to Keith Haddock’s book the whole line is still available today on a manufacture-to-order basis. According to Taylor Machine Works’s website they specialize in the manufacturing of heavy duty fork lift trucks, container handlers, and specialty machines. http://www.taylormachineworks.com

The tractor on the photos I believe is a Cameco. Next time we go up there I have to verify this. As you know jdeere Cameco used to manufacture equipment for sugar cane farmers. To my knowledge they used to build harvesters, tractors and some other equipment. Cameco was bought out by Deere & Company back in 1998 I believe.

Re: Sugar Cane Harvest
Nothing Runs Like a Deere, where do you live? in Florida? here in Costa Rica we have some sugar cane mostly in Guanacaste and in some farms there are Cameco tractors and harvesters. Most of the new or recent tractors are John Deere.
Take care.

Re: Sugar Cane Harvest
The tractor pictured above is a Vanguard Cane Hauling tractor. It was built in Miami Florida, until the company went out of business in 2005. They were mainly sold in South America, but there were some sold in South Florida
