Reproduction Hoods For Antique Deere Tractors
Anyone who restores antique Deere tractors will be interested in the reproduction hoods I make. Eliminates the need to hammer dents out of old hoods and fill them in with body putty. They're available for A, B, D, G, GP, and L models which were all built before 1940. I also make hoods for the 430 and 330 models. The hoods come ready to paint. They sell for $145 except for the 430 and 330 models which sell for $350. It often costs more to have a body shop repair an existing hood than to put our new one on.
I built my own 350 bu. grain cart using the front wheels and axles off an old Case combine. The box is made from 12-ga. sheet metal and is equipped with a pto-driven, 12-in. dia. auger. I bought the gearbox and pto shaft for the auger cheap at an auction. I made the hitch quite long to make it easier for my Deere 4020 tractor to pull the wagon. However, next time I'd make the hitch shorter in order to put more tongue weight on the tractor. The auger is folded hydraulically by a cylinder that operates off the tractor hydraulics. A hydraulically-operated flow gate inside the wagon shuts off the grain supply to the auger. (Dave Geyer, 1251 Rohret Rd. S.W., Oxford, Iowa 52322 ph 319 628-4257).
