Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - One Duluth family has all their tractors lined up ready for auction.

The Roningen family is auctioning off over 100 tractors this weekend.

The family has been collecting tractors for over a century.

They will also have a couple windmills up for grabs.

Chris Roningen hopes proceeds from the auction will help tehm buy one modern day tractor along with some hay equipment.

However, they say it's been hard to part with some of their prized possessions.

"Font wheel assist diesel 706 Minneapolis Moline...My brother and I talked about it for a long time, and we decided to go ahead and sell it...we are never going to get to fixing it up, we don't use it so hopefully someone who loves it will get it," said Roningen.

The auction will start at 9:30 Saturday morning at the corner of Strand and Lester River Road.

Ronigen's boy scout troop will also be there barbequing.
