News: Withee – Buys Street Roller (Sep 1904)


Surnames: None

----Source: Greenwood Gleaner (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.) 29 Sep 1904

The Village Council has made another valuable municipal investment in the shape of a National reversible street roller. This is the very latest improvement in street making, having been on the market but a short time, and Withee is the first town in the vicinity to purchase one. It has a diameter of six feet, runs on ball bearing axle and has a weight of 1100 pounds, which can be increased to six and one half tons if desired. Our streets have again been heavily graveled this summer, and this machine will put on the finishing touch, crushing and packing down the gravel so as not to interfere with hauling this winter. The machine cost $450.00.
