August Featured Photo

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.

 

“The 550 was the successor to Oliver’s Super 55 and almost 200,000 of this popular little tractor were produced from 1958 through 1975. The 550 was strong for its size, delivering 35HP at the drawbar and was offered in several configurations. Restored by Joe Tarbet of Lubbock, Texas. Joe is a good friend who helped me start collecting and restoring old tractors. Joe found this Oliver 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. I watched Joe restore this Oliver and years later when he decided to liquidate his collection, I was fortunate to be able to buy it.” – Bill Adams

May’s featured photo was submitted
by Bill Luecke of Kansas.
“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.”
