Rare Deere 3020 "Utility Tractor"
"Whenever I'm in the market for a tractor I always look for something rare. This one definitely qualifies," says Robert Glanville, Walton, Ontario, who's the owner of a 1964 3020 "utility tractor". The low profile tractor is built like an orchard tractor, but without the wheel flarings on back. It was intended primarily for working inside barns.
  The first thing you notice about the tractor is the "underexhaust" muffler, which goes down and then back under the rear axle. The tractor has smaller than normal front and rear wheel hubs to keep the height down. Also, the operator's feet straddle the transmission because of the lower overall height.
  "Only about 1,300 3020 utility tractors were made, and only about 20 percent of them were equipped with a powershift transmission so my model is quite rare," says Glanville. "It was actually one of the first tractors to offer a powershift transmission.
  "Usually these tractors were used for loader work so they're in pretty rough condition. Mine was in real bad shape, with hardly a piece of tin still left on it. The wheel rims were rusted off and the hood was gone. I also worked on the engine and transmission and installed new tires."
