It's unanimous for Winther. This big logger looks to be from around 1920 or so. Winther trucks were first built in Winthrop Harbor Illinois in 1917, but one year later they moved to Kenosha Wisconsin. That same year they began building the Winther-Marwin all wheel drive trucks. The last Winther was built in 1928. Hamish had this 1st. Thanks to George Murphey for the WAI photo and the 1st ad, and Dan Souday for the last ad. The other log truck is a rather interesting twin-steer model; at least, it has two steering wheels !

Martin P. Winther incorporated Winther Motor and Truck Company in December 1916, initially manufacturing a rear-drive Winther truck. Shortly after, the factory manufactured the 4-wheel-drive Winther-Marwin truck, and the Winther passenger car 1920-23. The truck cabs were open and fitted with low doors. Initial capacities were 2,3,4 and 6 tons and were priced from $2,750 to $4,600. Later vehicles extended the line and included trucks in the 1 to 7 ton range. As early as 1919 the company claimed that the Winthers vehicles were the dominating truck in the U.S. Navy. The smaller (1-2 ton) trucks were aimed at the agricultural market, while the heavier models were intended for use in the logging, fire fighting, and snowplowing industries. The latter made early use of rotary plows; one of the largest used two engines, the rear one over the rear axle to drive the truck and the front one for the plow, with the fully-enclosed cab between. In the 1920s, electric starters were added to most vehicles. In 1926, the company produced five vehicle styles ranging from 1 1/2 to 5/7 tons. In its last year the products were renamed Winther-Kenosha, and in the summer of 1927 the plant was sold to H.P. Olsen.

Here's mine when I was hauling it home.

Too wide to fit on the little trailer so I had to block it up!


1917 model 67, 3 ton, Wisconsin engine, all there except the drive shaft and a few little bits and pieces. I need a set of wheels like
the WAI truck has.

Cross your fingers, but I may have that Fageol moving under it's own power real soon.

The Winther is probably in a bit better condition, but with a few more missing pieces. I believe I can get her going too if

I get after it. It's been sitting there for a couple of years, but at least its indoors now.
