Czech Farmer Restores F-20 Farmall
Czech Republic farmer Lukas Kulhanek loves tractors, even those produced thousands of miles across the Atlantic Ocean from his farm in Czechoslovakia. Kulhanek owns a 70-year-old Farmall M and a nearly 90-year-old Farmall F-20. He bought the F-20 from a Pennsylvania farmer, shipped it overseas to his country, and restored it to like new condition.
Kulhanek says he doesn’t use the tractor in the field, only to attend shows and parades. In the spring of 2023, he drove the F-20 to a gathering of historic tractors and vehicles in Dobrichovice to show his handiwork to others. Kulhanek says visitors to the event enjoyed his shiny red tractor, complete with OEM decals and new rubber tires. Kulhanek was awarded second place in the commercial vehicle category for his handiwork.
Throughout the summer, he’ll attend other shows and parades in nearby communities so other Czech Republic farmers can get a glimpse of the old Farmall, which he says purrs like a kitten. When shows and events are too far to drive the F-20 or the M, he trailers them and often takes his grandkids along.
