Tractor Story – John Deere 40U

I got this John Deere model 40U from a friend of mine after he had a massive stroke. My dad and I spent a lot of time working and a lot of trips to Steiners to get different parts. After 850 hours of working on it I got it all painted and running like a champ. Last September my wife and I took it to the Big Bridge crossing and I got my wish to drive it across the Mighty Mack. When I got it it didn’t start or run so we pushed it on the trailer with another tractor and after a week I drove it off. It was a lot of work but was well worth it. I am very grateful for the help of the service personnel at Steiner Tractor Parts to help me find different parts and the wiring harness that was very hard to find. Without you all I would not have been able to do this protect.
