My dad purchased this 1957 861 Powermaster Tractor in 2013. We decided to turn it into a father-son restoration project. Fortunately, the original tractor was in good shape body wise; our goal was to bring the old tractor back to its glorious state. We completely took apart the tractor piece by piece to restore it.
After several months of late hours, the project was completed. We took pictures throughout the process to see before and after pictures. The end result was a true project to be proud of. The tractor is used regularly now on both of our properties and is something that can be handed down from generation to generation.
