“On March 1st, 2012 I purchased this Oliver 2150 from Richard Kreger in Jetmore, Kansas. This is 1 of only 14 made in this configuration. The tractor is a Wheatland model with a planetary rear axle, 478ci Hercules engine, 130 horsepower, over/under hydraul-shift and has serial number 209290-657. It was very sound mechanically, but very bad cosmetically. I removed the cab and restored it. I repaired the doors, installed all new glass, replaced all the padding and even got the air conditioning working. I sandblasted everything, primed it with epoxy primer and painted it with PPG Essential polyurethane. I put everything back to original as much as possible. In April of 2014, I finished the restoration.”

purchased this tractor when he was a farmer. After he retired
from farming, the tractor was handed down to my dad and sat
in a shed for more than 20 years. In 2016, I decided to start
restoring it.” After alot of hard work, Geoff finished the restoration
and is now looking forward to tractor shows and parade season.
“Government Contract, Glen Canyon
Dam and a Golf Course”
March’s featured photo was submitted by Judy Kitson. “This tractor is a 1951 UB Minneapolis Moline Industrial version, as can be seen by the dual tires and shifter for forward and reverse. It was made on a US government contract and still has the original government plates. The tractor was used by the bureau in building the Glen Canyon Dam that created Lake Powell. After the dam was built the tractor was purchased by the city of Page, Arizona and used on their golf course. When they finally parked it, it was picked up by Eugene Tucker at the city auction. He has since used it in the Page, Arizona annual tractor pulls in October. He and the tractor can be seen pulling on our website www.PageTractorClub.com in our cover photo. Eugene is one of the founders and the President of the Page Antique Tractor & Machinery Club – EDGE&TA br. 217.”
“The One He Dreamed Of”
February’s featured photo was submitted by Jason Hedrick. Pictured is Jason’s 1965 International 1206 tractor. “Growing up on a farm and also collecting antique tractors, the 1206 was the tractor I always wanted. While we had several makes and models of tractors, the 1206 was never one that we had. In 2011 I finally got the opportunity to buy and restore one. It was a complete front to back restoration.”

January’s featured photo was submitted by Keith Fink. “This is our 1942 Ford 9N which belongs to our 11-year old son, Hank (pictured). The whole family helped to fix up and paint the tractor. This is one of three ‘old tractors’ on our dairy farm, but none of them have achieved collector status yet as they are all daily workers.” Click here to see the other winning tractor photos that were selected to appear in our 2018 catalog.
“His & Hers”
December’s featured photo was submitted by Kim Horneman and will be featured in our 2018 catalog. The tractors pictured are a John Deere 720 and a John Deere 40. “My 720 diesel is a 1957 or 1958, pony start, has 3-point hitch and dual hydraulics. I bought it just out of high school and it was literally in boxes but somehow it became a tractor again. My husband’s 40 is a 1955 and is the latest addition to our family. We just got the chrome pipe from you all 2 days prior to this picture when we were having our family plow day at my parent’s farm, Daily Crisis Farm. He was a Farmall man but I think he has realized it’s okay to like both.”
