    I looked up buffalo springfield 3 wheeled roller and came across some pics of similar rollers, couldn't get a pic to download though. Seems to be a late 50's or early 60's with the diesel engine and solid rollers.

    Thanks for that . The engine no would seem to indicate early 40’s

    The Buffalo Springfield Roller co., was bought out by the Koehring Co. in 1956. You might try to get a hold of whoever owns the Koehring name now. They might have old records of the serial numbers.

    First thing to come to mind Hansen!! The rock group, then REO Speedwagon popped in for a visit!!!A lot of them named for inconspicuous machines in the day that few beyond us Old Farts would know.
