The tractor started out in pieces and looked nothing like a tractor. I spent over 100 hours restoring the tractor. The over 100 hours I spent I think made the difference to how the tractor turned out. There was a lot of hours where research and ideas were looked at. All those unrecorded hours also made a difference on the way we learned the tractor. I now know that tractor from front to back and I used the whole tractor. It turned into a magnificent tractor after having all the work done to it. It looks like new out of factory, if not better.
