1953 John Deere 50, the last tractor my grandfather owned bought it back last summer. And got it working and running again with parts from Steiners.
The next tractor a 1961 Cub Low Boy with Danco C2 mower, was bought from an elderly gentleman whose health was failing. In two years’ time fixed it up and repainted it with help from Steiners. Definitely made his day when we dropped off the pictures of his old cub in its dress clothes.
The last tractor is my first antique tractor 1948 John Deere B bought from my great uncle in 1993 at thirteen years old. I learned how to drive on this tractor and learned how to fix tractors from this machine. I’m a self-taught mechanic after hours of reading old motors manuals. And working on this old iron for friends, family, and neighbors. Thank you Steiners for having affordable good quality parts to keep history alive and working.
