    That's an old White tractor stuck in the mud whilst trying to jockey it into position.

    This is from their website.
    Norris Brothers Company was founded in 1867 by Thomas Norris Sr. as a heavy hauling and rigging contractor. Over 140 years later, the company has grown from a single team of horses to a modern company with the latest in equipment and technology. We are still owned by fourth generation family, and stand ready to meet the needs of industries in the greater Northeastern Ohio area.

    Pretty cool
