Jädersbruk is situated close to Arboga in the central part of Sweden. Arboga is located in the department of Västmanland.
This is the location of an yearly upcoming event: To gather and drive different vintage machines. Preferably machines older than 50 years.
There is also a handcraft market and you can try do some old cooking making your own coaler pancakes over open fire.
This is an old caterpillar type tractor. The make is a Swedish brand, Bolinder-Munktell.
I met up with Roger, an old friend now living in South America. There he deals with modern caterpillars.

Almost every machine is started a couple of timed during the day. Many machines have old engines that need to be warmed externally to start.
This is an old machine to flatten roads. Also a Bolinder –Munktell build in 1924.
Here follows a film were the machine can be seen in action, there is also the operation of an old aeroplane engine, I think a Wright cyclone, 1640Hp. That was originally mounted in a helicopter.
Film sequence. Here is a film sequence with two machines.
