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
