Model T of Tractors Posted by linus69 on 11/14/2013

This tractor is a copy of a 50's-60's US farm tractor. Reverse engineered to the usual Chinese standards of quality, fit and finish.

That being said, it has done all I have asked of it and much more. Of course it leaks and has had a "gremlin" or two to deal with. But I have always been able to repair it myself and that is because it is the "Model T" of tractors. Primitive technology but easy to repair with basic tools, even in the field.

ITEM INFORMATION
Model year: 2003 Date Purchased: 05/15/2006 Number of Hours: 340
