Let me start, by saying sorry for my english. I'm Dutch and not used to it on a daily basis. My father, Carolus A. Takkenberg 1907-1985 worked almost his entire life by a firm called Louis Reijners in Amsterdam,The Netherlands. This firm imported for a couple of years Allis Chalmers farm equipment. I think that must be from about 1938 till some years after the war.My father always told me that sales of AC farmequipment went wrong in The Netherlands after all because the distance between the wheels of the imported machines was differant from the one used in Europe? The import and sale of construction equipment machines, I think from the late twenties till the sixties was however successfull till the merger of AC with Fiat. If someone out there is interested in some details I can try to look them up becuase I've a lot of papers of that time from my father. Names I can remember, my father was doing businness with were a certain Mr. Myron Rhoten and a Mr.Haskell ( I think he was danish originally). One of the things I have is a picture album from a trip my dad made in sept-oct. 1954. Several global dealers were gathered together and working with machines like the D-grader, the HD 15 AC with 314 scraper, the HD-20 pusher with TS-20 ripper and so on.There is a picture of Plant 3 in Springfield.
