March Featured Tractor Photo

This month’s featured photo was submitted by Dale Wells.

Dale’s 1957 John Deere 720 and a John Deere 720 peddle tractor.

“This John Deere 720 diesel was purchased from a friend who planned to part it out about 3 years ago. It was in pretty rough shape. About a year later for Fathers Day my kids bought a John Deere 720 peddle tractor thinking the antique tractor would never move from its spot in the barn.
My son Jim and I began working on it, acquiring the parts to rebuild it with the help of our local John Deere dealer and Steiner, as we tried to keep it as original as possible. We finished this project mechanically in March of 2018. With the help of our friend John Eicher and his boys Jeremy and Brandon, the final touches of paint, tires and reassembly were completed just in time for my son Jim’s wedding in May. Thanks to all those who worked many hours to make this tractor come back to life!” – Dale Wells

This month’s featured tractor photo was submitted by John Fleming and features his 1950 Co-Op E3 Diesel. “Cockshutt built very few of this model with the diesel engine.

November Featured Photo

This month’s featured photo was submitted by Mike Smith and features his 1960 Oliver 440. One of only 700 produced, the 440 is a very rare and sought after model. They were designed to be used for cultivating tobacco fields in Virginia, Southern Pennsylvania and the Carolina’s.

“This tractor has a set of cultivators which have been removed. It was up-fitted with a 60″ Woods mower that runs off the PTO. The hydraulic lift cylinder and hoses are with it, as well as the original drawbar, front wheel weights and top link. Pretty much a complete unit. This tractor runs smoothly and is a blast to just drive around.” Mike said.

Mike plans on starting a mechanical restoration in the fall and will finish the project off with a fresh coat of paint and new decals. “We plan on keeping it as a very pretty, working tractor.” said Mike.

This photo was chosen as a winner in our annual photo contest and will be featured in the 2019 catalog.

October Featured Photo

October’s featured photo was submitted by Jason Anderson and features a 1957 Ford 900 series owned by Rich and Mary Houzner of Elroy, Wisconsin.

About 6 years ago the Houzner’s were in need of a tractor to handle some of the smaller jobs around the dairy farm. When they found this Ford tractor they liked the old style and thought it’s smaller size would make it suitable for their young boys as they started learning to operate farm equipment.

This Ford tractor has done all that and more! It’s become a family favorite to rake hay and corn stalks with and was the perfect edition to the Houzner’s all Ford / New Holland implement fleet.

September Featured Photo

September’s featured photo was submitted by Cary Bolton. This photo was chosen as a winner in our annual photo contest and will be featured in the 2019 Steiner catalog.

 

“This is a 1963 Massey Ferguson 65 tractor with multi-power. I purchased it at an estate sale. It had been rode hard and put away wet many times. I am going to split the tractor and put in the necessary seals and check the clutch. I also need to go through the hydraulic system. The tractor runs but needs a good tune-up and the exhaust system fixed. I have been looking for parts in various places but was delighted to find that the steering wheel is available new from Steiner at a price close to ones found at salvage yards. I will go with the new one! I need to do alot of work on the seat before I can order new cushions, which i’ll get from Steiner as well. I will take some more pictures and send them along after I get it going again. Before I fix this one though, I am going to work on a 1963 Massey Ferguson 50 that needs less work. Those parts will come from Steiner as well.”

August Featured Photo

August’s featured photo was submitted by Bill Adams. This photo was chosen as a winner in our annual photo contest and will be featured in the 2019 Steiner catalog.

 

Joe Tarbet, a good friend of Bill’s that restored this Oliver 550, helped Bill start collecting and restoring antique tractors. Joe found this Oliver 550 in a very dilapidated condition at a cotton gin yard near Lamesa, Texas. In its last years it had retired from plowing and was used to pull cotton trailers around the gin. Bill watched Joe restore this Oliver 550 and several years later when Joe decided to liquidate his collection, Bill was fortunate to be able to buy it.
