MAKOTI, N.D. (AP) — A longtime tractor collector in the Makoti area is putting his collection up for sale.

Sixty-six tractors dating back to 1924 are lined up for one-third of a mile on the Ed Dobrinski farm. They'll go on the block during a Sept. 30 auction.

Dobrinski says he's 90 years old, and it's time to sell the tractors so they continue to get attention and don't deteriorate.

Dobrinski at one point had more than 100 tractors. He's given many to family members.

The tractors to be sold at auction include Minneapolis Moline, John Deere, Case, Massey Harris, Ford, Co-op, Oliver, Cockshutt, McCormick, Allis Chalmers and International. The collection includes a Model A Allis Chalmers machine that Dobrinski says is one of only about 1,200 made.
