Scale Model of a Deere D Tractor
In the last issue of FARM SHOW (Vol. 14, No. 3) I read the story about Harry Zacker who built a scale model of a Deere D tractor. I, too, have built a scale model of a Deere but it resembles a "70" series tractor. I call it a "Mini 10". I used the hood and steering from a "Pony Tractor Co." tractor. The rear end and transmission came out of an old lawn mower. The hand clutch is simply a belt tightener on the Continental motor. I mounted a fake exhaust and air breather pipe on the hood to make it look more realistic and even made a pair of steel wheels complete with lugs. A working belt pulley mounts on the right side. The tractor has three speeds forward and one speed reverse. It has plenty of power to keep up with parades. I plan to show it this summer at all the engine shows that I attend.
