|I have always had a knack for tractors, when I was younger and the farmer would come by to bale our hay, after he parked the tractors I would always go out and sit in the seat and pretend to farm. I also used to sit outside and watch the neighbors farm. I still do that today. |
I only own one tractor and I have yet to see it run. It is a 1950 John Deere B. Everything on it was stuck and she was in great shape cosmetically, currently she is all over the garage.
Previous projects include a John Deere No. 44 plow that my dad had started to restore 15 years ago and stopped. It was my job to finish painting it and put it back together (of which I had no clue until I finally found a manual) It was so far my most frustrating project as I had no idea how to put it together. I also I guess it would be rebuilt a hayflat because restore is not the word for this. It was an interesting project as the frame was the rear end of 2 trucks it looks like, ten some handy welding to put on a tounge and rear drawbar and the angle iron to attach the bed.
Future projects include a 7 foot Massey Furgeson Disc Harrow which has seen better days, and then whatever comes along. I am looking at a farm truck as well as haying implements.
