Combine Converted To Tractor
I needed an extra tractor to pull wagons to the field. I didn't want to spend the money for another tractor so I made my own by cutting down a 1953 model 55 Deere combine. I shortened the frame 4 ft. and used angle iron to reinforce the frame. It still uses the original belt drive to the transmission. I added a school bus seat and hand rails so we could drive it around at tractor shows. It's powered by a 6-cyl. Hercules engine which, with straight exhaust pipe, sounds nice and really catches your attention. (Thomas Janecke, 202 E. Davis, Lake George, Mich. 48633)
