Made Deere Model Tractors Out Of Pop And Beer Cans
"They're a real novelty, people can't resist taking photos of them," says Ed Podhorodeski, Shipman, Sask., who makes 3 1/2-ft. high Deere model tractors out of pop and beer cans that are glued together. He has made three "pop can" tractors including two 1997 7810s and a 1949 D.
Each tractor is about 42 in. long, 32 in. wide, and 42 in. high. He uses a hot glue gun to hold the cans together initially, then uses a caulking gun to apply silicone adhesive. When he's done attaching the cans together he spray paints them green, yellow, and black.
