Rare Attachment For Deere Tractor
For a few years back in the 1960's, Deere offered a fiberglass kit that would convert a Deere 110 garden tractor into a two-seater with a couple of seat cushions on back.
  The kit was called the Sweepster and was made by Sweepster Jenkins Co. in Covington, Ohio. The kit was designed to bolt onto the tractor's rear axle after the owner removed the rear fenders and seat. The owner also had to turn the tractor's rear wheels inside out to make room for the Sweepster's mounting brackets.
  "It turns the tractor into a real show piece," says Robert Glanville, Walton, Ontario, who recently sent FARM SHOW photos of his Sweepster-equipped Deere 110. "It's a pretty rare piece of equipment - I've only seen seven other models in North America. Over the years I've driven it in parades and shows and it always makes a great conversation piece."
